Overview
With a nearly three-hundred-year history, Prince William County has its share of haunted tales and scary spots. Ghosts still haunt the battlefield at Manassas, including the Ben Lomond Plantation, site of a Civil War–era hospital. The jailhouse in Brentsville keeps many of its captives in ghostly form. The Weems Botts House, home of George Washington’s biographer, Parson Weems, is still haunted by the spirit of one of its owners. Local author and historian Andrew Mills narrates the best and creepiest tales of hauntings throughout the county.
