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 Native American lovers who leapt to their deaths from Jump Mountain, near Lexington; 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); 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; the hauntings of the Wayside Inn, Middletown, continuously serving its guests, living or spectral, since 1797; 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); and card playing pirates and ghostly victims of a Native American attack at Carter's Grove, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Virginia.
