Blowing Rock’s Green Park Inn has a history of being haunted General Manager Steve Love says.Love, a self-proclaimed “I’ll believe when I see it” skeptic, doesn’t believe in ghosts- but acknowledges many of his patrons do. In fact, the Inn, built in 1882, has its own ghost: Laurel Greene.
Laurel was one of the first brides at the Green Park. After being left at the alter, she hung herself, Love says.
Guests have seen her walking down the hall in her white dress.
Children’s voices have also been heard- even when no children are staying at the hotel.
For some guests, it increases the appeal, Love says.
In fact, many patrons request the specific room where Greene supposedly died: 318.
The hotel has a book where guests record hauntings, and it’s full of stories, Love says.
