Ghosts, Folklore, Legends, Scary Stories, Monsters and Myths in Virginia
Hauntings of Woodlawn Plantation, Mount Vernon, including the beautiful and fragrant ghost of Eleanor "Nelly" Custis (near the boxwood trees) and the well in the gift shop that may be a portal to another world; the hauntings of the Wayside Inn, Middletown, continuously serving its guests, living or spectral, since 1797; the creation, by the Great Spirit, of the Natural Bridge over Cedar Creek, Rockbridge County, for the benefit of the Monacan tribe (their women and children escaped across the bridge while their menfolk were able to defend the narrow path from a larger number of Powhatan warriors); the magical waters of the underground Lost River below Natural Bridge, which make everyone who drinks from them return; the phantom boats of the Rappahannock River, including the Black Barge, a portent of Republican victory in the elections of Tappahannock and Essex County; George, the invisible ghost of Altavista Combined Middle and High School; and mysteries of the Great Dismal Swamp, including a spectral raft with two occupants, illuminated by a bottle of fireflies, on Lake Drummond (the occupants are the ghosts of a man who went mad with grief and that of his lover, whose spirit the man desperately sought in the swamp), are among the true ghost stories, myths and legends of Virginia.
The Richmond Vampire, popularly (and perhaps unfairly) associated with the tomb of William Wortham Pool in Holywood Cemetery, Richmond; spooky tales of the Inn at Willow Grove in Orange, haunted by ghostly foosteps and two Confederate soldiers who sit and converse under a tree; spirits of the historic and very haunted Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach, including a phantom cat and a spectral former employee who tells people that there are ghosts on the higher floors; Lucy, a phantom in the Olde Towne Inn, Manassas, who has the power to levitate people; the hatchet wielding Bunny Man (Bunnyman Ghost) of Colchester Overpass (Bunny Man Bridge) near Clifton; card playing pirates and ghostly victims of a Native American attack at Carter's Grove; spooky goings on in the Martha Washington Inn and Spa, Abingdon, including Civil War bloodstains appearing on new carpets and a phantom woman seeking her lover; and the Native American lovers who leapt to their deaths from Jump Mountain, near Lexington, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Virginia.
