With a history stretching back to the 1607 Jamestown settlement, Virginia is rich in mystery. There are ghost towns, fake towns, a vampire in Richmond, a Bunnyman in Clifton and secret government sites all over. Colonists buried gold along the James River, and Sir Francis Bacon’s plan for a “New Atlantis” lies in a vault in Williamsburg. Fabled pirates Captain Kidd and Blackbeard stashed treasure along the Virginia coast. A ghost light appears at a railroad crossing near West Point, and mysterious booms rattle windows from central Virginia to the Eastern Shore. Cryptid creatures stalk the forests from Fairfax County to the Great Dismal Swamp. A devil monkey lurks in Goochland, Bigfoot roams Marine Corps Base Quantico and a sea serpent swims through the Chesapeake Bay. Join Virginia native Denver Michaels as he explores these legends and many more.
