Wilmington, North Carolina - Chamber of Commerce June 20, 2020, 12:55:52 PM Wilmington, North Carolina - Chamber of Commerce Wilmington's official Welcome Center is home to a ghost, who was once photographed descending a staircase in the building. Known officially as the Price-Gause House, the place has been considered haunted ever since it was built in 1843. Immediately after moving in, the Gause family heard strange footsteps on the stairs and traced an eerie tapping sound that moved along the walls. They finally decided to live with the unidentified presence. Later residents came to the same conclusion. An investigation in October 1967 documented several mysterious sounds and yielded the startling photo of a misty, human form walking down the stairs.
