What is the most famous ghost story from Virginia?

The most famous Virginia ghost story takes place at Ingles Castle in Radford. According to legend, the image of a woman is burned into one of the mirrors housed inside the castle. It’s believed to be Anne McClanahan Bass, a frequent houseguest of the Ingles family. One night, the building was struck by lightning. The drastic shock caused Anne’s image to become seared to the glass. She is thought to linger around the castle to this day.
