I'm extremely excited about sharing documented Virginia folklore AND newspaper reports of "ghosts" in cemeteries. These ghost stories recount historic tragedies, unjust parts of history, and even share comical tales of what happens when locals take a shortcut through sacred grounds.
I've added two teasers of newspaper clippings below-- the Hollywood Cemetery ghost saga from 1870 (it's a rather sad story about a woman whose betrothed was killed in the Richmond Capitol Disaster);
|(Alexandria Gazette, June 15, 1870)|
|(The Roanoke Times, Sep 21 1951)|
Just another excuse to travel to so many Virginia cemeteries!
