It’s not truly Halloween without spooky stories to tell in the dark. To celebrate Halloween like a Raleigh local, it’s time to settle down with a cup of hot cider and a good book about local haunts.

Ghosts of the Triangle is a book written by Richard and William Jackson, highlighting a variety of historical houses that are said to be haunted in Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. You can read about the tales of the Dorothea Dix campus, The Carolina Inn, and more in this page-turning book.

Snack on Roasted Pumpkin Seeds

While you’re carving your pumpkin, keep the seeds and set them aside to eat later, and follow these recipes to create tasty snacks to help get you in the fall spirit. (Quick tip: The secret to cooking the seeds correctly is to soak them first.)

This recipe for toasted pumpkin seeds is a fantastic recipe that our real estate team members have used and have had great success with.

Spice Up Your Usual Breakfast
