From colonial-era witches to modern sightings of Bigfoot, the history of the Old Dominion is filled with creepy tales. Cemeteries, battlefields and inns host haunts from Virginia’s earliest days. Some appear as corporeal figures and some as lights or ghostly noises. Delve into the sad and scary stories of patients who still linger in Victorian-era sanatoriums. Unexplained sightings of mysterious creatures, from Bigfoot to werewolves, are widespread in the western part of the state, and Chessie rears her head in the Bay—for the lucky few! Even prominent buildings like the Executive Mansion in Richmond have their own uncanny legends. Join master storyteller Sherman Carmichael as he explores the lore of the Old Dominion.
