Bud Phillips has been a resident of Bristol, Virginia, since 1953. He first began to hear strange and unique stories about the past from his older clients when he served as a social worker. In March 2006, he began writing a detailed history column for the sesquicentennial celebrations of Bristol, and due to popular demand he continues to write for the Bristol Herald Courier to this day. Now, yielding to request and pressure, he has decided to fill the need for a collection of ghost tales.
