I know this place was featured on MTVs FEAR and I'd just like to know if there are any real hauntings here or if all the stories on that show were just fake.

Take a look at the scientific evidence for the existence of ghosts, rather than that which is presented to you on an entertainment channel, and make a judgement from there. There are inherent risks associated with exploring abandoned buildings, but ghosts are not one of them.

I have visited Wilmington twice though. It's very pretty.

"Hauntings", when presented on "for entertainment only" type shows, are largely exaggerated if not flat out made up. I consider myself a skeptical believer, but the majority of things presented on TV and the like, that are shown with zero scientific evidence, can largely tossed out as fake. Things such as "Ghost Adventures" are absolutely ludicrous and are quite clearly done merely to entertain(or possibly scare, but it's nearly impossible to scare me, especially with stuff that's so over the top.).

I've done a decent amount of "ghost hunting" in my time(years and years worth) and have come away with only a very few experiences that I'd be willing to consider as being genuine. You're not going to find a spirit or whatever around every corner like the entertainment shows lead you to believe. Noises heard in old structures are almost entirely parts of the building settling. While I won't tell you that you won't encounter something that's possibly genuinely paranormal, chances are you won't. As the first respondent said, there are lots of risks to entering old, abandoned buildings, but you're not going to be eaten by ghosts.
