A guide to haunted locations in the Charlottesville, Virginia area.
For those who are interested in true ghost stories this is an interesting documentation of ghostly encounters in various Inns, homes, mansions, restaurants and graveyards.
You could build a travel itinerary using the sites in the book.
Found it interesting.
I have also had some interesting encounters of my own so I know it can happen.
I found several ghosts/ghostly encounters in the Stanley Hotel in Colorado- especially on the stair

“A Look At Haunted Places In Virginia”

I was given an ARC from the author for an honest Review. In Charlottesville and the surrounding counties are a number of places and buildings that appear to be haunted. The author and her brother tour the wide area, she looking for signs and stories of hauntings, and her brother taking pictures of the places they visit. Most hauntings appear to be connected to battles of the Civil War that took place in this area of Virginia, but there are murders that also

Ms. Schwartz takes you through the city of Charlottesville and the surrounding counties to many of the haunted spots that are among the ordinary places. Many are historical, but some aren't. If the pandemic is making you develop the itch to travel, I think these would be a good area to start. There are even haunted hotels and bed and breakfasts you can stay at, too. Or if you live in Virginia, many of these places and spots make great day trips this summer and the coming fall. And besides the hi ...more

I love ghosts! I am a huge fan of ghost books. When going places if there is a ghost tour offered I am there. I have a box full of ghost hunting equipment and have been in a few ghost hunting groups. I love books that feature hauntings. But I really love True haunting books the best. Susan Schwartz has done an amazing job of bringing the true haunted places together in this book. This book is about the haunted places in Charlottesville North Carolina nd the surrounding counties.

This book has all the good stuff: ghostly tales of civil war soldiers haunting a train station or a battle field, a grief stricken mother stalks a stately manor belonging to the descendants of the famous Aaron Burr, slaves from revolutionary war days crying out agains their mistreatment, the ghost of a freedman protests his extrajudicial lynching. This book covers ghost stories located across to a broad swatch of central and southern Virginia. Come for the spooky tales and stay for the descripti ...more

I love a good ghost story. I don't know why, but I do. I had not read anything by this author previously, so I was excited to do so. In this book the author and her brother tour the areas covered in the book. It seemed to be that most of the sightings/hauntings happened around heavy Civil War areas around Virginia. Not an uncommon thing. I remember doing a ghost tour in Gettysburg, PA and there was so much activity.



One of the things that I liked is the recomendations that the author made throug

So many basic historical inaccuracies! James Monroe and Aaron Burr lived in Carrsgrove Mansion? Nope! Can't even update the name of historic sites or their web addresses. James Monroe built the two-story addition in 1860? A little difficult considering he died in 1831! Sloppy writing and editing. Not worth the read.

Schwartz's Haunted Charlottesville and Surrounding Counties explores the many haunted locations in the history rich area of Charlottesville and its surrounding counties. In addition to looking at well-known, 'popular' spots, many private residences are discussed. This is a territory steeped in the past. From the Revolutionary War, to the Civil War, there are numerous structures left with tales of hauntings. This seems almost always the case with places used as field hospitals. Bloodstains are of ...more
