This Abandoned School is One of North Carolina’s Scariest Places

Although North Carolina is rich in history, its long-abandoned locations may be one of the state’s most recognisable reminders of its colourful past.

These are some of the most terrifying locations you’ll come across in the entire state. They are covered in overgrown brush, decaying, and occasionally said to be haunted.

Thriving Training Facility

Just outside of Charlotte, in the early 1900s, a thriving training facility called the Stonewall Jackson Training School was established.

This facility eventually developed a bad reputation for mistreatment and abuse. In Concord, North Carolina, the defunct school is currently vacant and deteriorating off of Old Charlotte Road. Read on to discover more.

For a large portion of the 19th and 20th centuries, the United States did not have many laws pertaining to juvenile crimes. Young adults who committed crimes were consequently too young to be transferred to an appropriate prison complex.

They were instead sent to training facilities like these, where there were substandard living conditions and widespread abuse.

Stonewall Jackson Training School

The Stonewall Jackson Training School had a campus that included an administration building, a memorial hall, and other buildings when it was first opened for business in 1909.

By the end of World War II, the school had a reputation for being an extremely strict and evil place where young children were treated in an inhumane manner.

Children as young as 13 were frequently sentenced to years of arduous labour as punishment for offences as minor as petty theft. In the 1970s, fewer kids went to school because of ongoing changes to welfare and prisons, community petitions, and ongoing changes to prisons.

The Stonewall Jackson structures have been declared unsafe to enter by the state today. These remnants, however, are now protected historical sites and cannot be demolished. They will sit empty and unused for hundreds of years, giving a spooky look into the sad history of America’s juvenile justice system.
