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.
In Clarke County, the spirits of the past bring history to life. The ghost of a brokenhearted Confederate soldier stares out a window waiting in vain for the return of the love of his life. Victims of a plane crash still linger at the scene of the tragedy forty-five years later. Union troops are still crossing the Shenandoah River through a hail of musket balls and cannon fire. From the legendary phantom coach of Carter Hall to lesser-known haunts along the county's back roads, a rock-throwing poltergeist, a smoky figure in a bedroom and strange creatures lurking in the woods, Michael Hess brings you the very best in Clarke County ghost lore.
