George, the invisible ghost of Altavista Combined Middle and High School; 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; 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; 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); Lucy, a phantom in the Olde Towne Inn, Manassas, who has the power to levitate people; 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 Native American lovers who leapt to their deaths from Jump Mountain, near Lexington; and the phantom boats of the Rappahannock River, including the Black Barge, a portent of Republican victory in the elections of Tappahannock and Essex County, are other legendary tales of ghosts and haunted places in Virginia.
