Ghost Hunters of Boone, NC Haunted location: Old Abandoned Forestry Compound

"There is a building in the compound which has all the windows boarded up. The downstairs consists of a long dark hallway with doors alternating on either side. In one downstairs bathroom there is a toilet filled with blood. Upstairs there is a room used by a now dead prostitute. This building is nicknamed the "Whorehouse" for that reason. Even when the temperature outside is 70 degrees, it barely reaches 40 degrees inside. Strange noises are heard by people who live in the Shiloh neighborhood, and lights have been seen as well. There are other buildings in the compound, and their doors are open and closed at random. There is a length of rope hanging from the rafters in one building." -virtualblueridge

One of the places you need to check out is Shiloh, the old abandoned forestry compound. This compound is located near the Biltmore Estate in Asheville, NC and was once home to the Biltmore Forestry School. Dr. Schenck ran the forestry school but due to his nasty temper he was fired and the school dissolved in 1913. Dr. Schenck blamed George Biltmore for firing him and closing the school and until his death vowed to get his revenge. After Dr. Schenck's death in 1955 the locals began noticing unusual happenings at the compound, lights in the compound late at night with no one being found upon investigation by the local sheriff. A curious local decided he would solve the mystery. When he entered the compound he found a dark shadow and ominous presence which followed him as he fled in terror. The curious gentleman never returned to the compound and actually later sold his own property and disappeared.

Legend has it that this old, abandoned, boarded-up building was also the site of a murder of a prostitute by one of her johns. Reports say you can still hear a woman singing softly if you listen closely. Some say one of the bathrooms downstairs has a toilet lined with dried blood and yet others say the toilet is filled with blood. Legend also says that no matter how hot it gets outside, the temperature in the compound itself never reaches above 40 degrees. One of the buildings in the compound has an expertly tied noose hanging from the rafters, legend says a man from the late 1950's was hung there and to this day still searches for his executioners in order to exact his revenge.

Anyone with experience here please contact us. We would love to speak with you.

I am sorry but your information and dates are all wrong. This was started by ASU students and you should be ashamed of yourself for perpetuating a total myth. At least get your dates right if you are going to print something and your information right.

There is nothing to be ashamed of here. There isn't a lot of information about his location available. How about you fill me us in on the history and I will make the appropriate corrections.

Thanks Tom!

This place has been sold to a local church. It is at the corner of London and Shady Oak Dr in Asheville NC.

You're all ridiculous.

The Biltmore Forest School that Carl Shenck founded was in Biltmore Forest.....the tract of land that is now part of Pisgah Forest. Nowhere near Biltmore Estate.

The old farm style buildings have been restored and preserved in an entire area called the cradle of forestry in America.

You've all been duped by a 14 year old who read a sign once while hiking. Congratulations.

Our Purpose...

This group of Ghost Hunters has been created to prove and disprove the paranormal. It is our goal to be the number one source for Paranormal investigations in the western mountains of North Carolina. Our office is located in the Mountains of Boone, NC. Home of APP State University. We travel from one end of the North Carolina to the other in search of the paranormal.
We investigate haunted locations that time has forgotten. Sometimes these locations are not accessable by ordinary means. Sometimes, these areas must be infiltrated.
All evidence will be uploaded here! We encourage fellow Ghost Hunters to review the evidence and post there thoughts and findings.

Currently seeking ghost hunters and suggestions...

Please contact us anytime via email if you have suggestions or if you are interested in joining The Infiltrators. We are always seeking the assistance of fellow Ghost Hunters. In or around Boone NC.
Our email address is:
We are looking for individuals with a passion for ghost hunting around the Western Mountains of North Carolina. Fellow ghost hunters please contact if interested.
If you have a suggestion please include as much information as possible. We are always looking for haunted locations to investigate as well.

Fellow Ghost Hunters

Our ghost hunting equipment...

We receive many questions from fellow Ghost Hunters concerning the technology that we use. Some have asked about EMF meters, IR thermometers and etc. We do not use such devices in our investigations typically. Namely, you cannot use such information as evidence. Theories yes, but not solid evidence. We attempt to prove/disprove the existance of ghosts using die hard proof.

Our main focus is the evidence that can only be collected from sight and sound. Feelings are important but naturally they are too easily influenced by surroundings, atmosphere and the etc, so they do not account for much here.

Digital Cameras (from SLR’s to point and click), Digital Audio Recorders (multiple models), Night Vision Camcorders (HD based systems) DVR, and more. All these tools and more assist us in our investrigations of haunted locations in North Carolina as we search for ghosts, spirits, and other paranormal oddities.
