Frisco, North Carolina: The Cora Witch Tree

Legendary oak where a suspected witch was supposed to be burned, but disappeared -- leaving only her barely visible name in the tree.

The tree stands in a subdivision, in the median of Snug Harbor Drive. From NC-12 turn north at the white church onto Buccaneer Drive, then make the first left onto Snug Harbor Drive. You'll see the big tree straight ahead.

The Cora Witch Tree

Legendary oak tree where a suspected witch was supposed to be burned, but disappeared -- and left only her name in the tree.

The letters CORA are barely visible in the bark of the tree; you have to look hard to see them. We should expect better handiwork from our cursed witches. Sept. 2020: Photo added.
