Ghost Hunting Tours, Staunton, VA
“Ghost hunting has grown in the past two decades from a little-known hobby to a much more popular pursuit.” –SF Gate
During the month of October, there is a ghost tour of historic Staunton (http://www.ghostsofstaunton.com/
So, what happens on these so-called “ghost tours?” If you’re expecting to be scared, or you’re anticipating a ghostly sighting, you will probably be disappointed. (Having said that, though, ghost box tours can be pretty creepy.) These tours “blend science, history, paranormal and legend together.” They explain the stories behind many of the ghost sightings around Staunton, such as the ghost of Charlotte, who hurled tools at the construction workers that were remodeling her old house. However, the tours are not limited to the paranormal. They also give explanations of the exquisite architecture around the Queen City.
Some quick notes:
-The tour is not recommended for small children.
-It is a 90-minute to 2-hour tour, so be prepared to walk a lot.
-There are very few public restrooms along the tour.
-Need lodging? How about a BBAV member inn (http://www.innvirginia.com/
