Legend of castle and bloody boulder has long entranced UNC students. But how true is it?


For nearly two centuries, the legend of Peter Dromgoole has enchanted the students of Chapel Hill – a story of a lover’s spat, a duel and a secret burial beneath a bloodstained boulder. In the most romantic version, young Dromgoole quarreled with a fellow student in 1833 over the affections of a woman known as Miss Fanny, choosing to settle the rivalry with pistols.
