Background: Harshaw Chapel and Cemetery is a historic Methodist chapel and cemetery at Church and Central Streets in Murphy, North Carolina. The chapel was built by Joshua Harshaw, who was a prominent slaveholder. It was built in 1869 and added to the National Register in 1984.

Legend Has It: Abraham Lincoln's father, Abram Enloe is buried here. There is the original hanging tree still growing on the outskirt of the graveyard. During multiple investigations, CCPS has seen and record various personalities that reside in the graveyard area, in the structure, and randomly throughout the grounds.

This is also the location of the "Dare Grave" of Mary and of the White Lady.
