The Story Behind Virginia’s Most Haunted House Will Give You Nightmares
Virginia has its fair share of haunted dwellings – and then some. Whether it’s the age of the buildings, the history experienced there, or something else altogether, nearly every city has at least a handful of truly terrorizing stories. Perhaps one of the scariest of these is the Major Graham Mansion in Grahams Forge. In its day, the mansion was known as Cedar Run. Legend has it that Confederate soldiers used to gather in secret in the attic of the house to discuss battle tactics. Major Graham’s Mansion holds a lot of local history, lore, and most likely a spirit or two. Learn about why paranormal investigators have been coming here for over 10 years.
