The Abandoned Town In Virginia That Most People Stay Far, Far Away From

It doesn’t seem too much of a stretch of logic to assume abandoned towns are abandoned for a reason. If a whole town decided to leave, then why would anyone ever want to come back? This isn’t always the case, as economic turmoil or other hardships can drive people to new locations. But there’s one ghost town in Virginia that most people haven’t inhabited for years. And that’s mostly because of its tragic history and harsh conditions. The former town of Wash Woods is currently part of False Cape State Park, and yet the plot of land where the buildings are deteriorating is also undeniably haunting.
