The Willard Library is supposedly haunted. And several webcams have been set up in places said to be the main points of interest so the public can help look for ghosts.

The Bunnyman here in Northern Virginia. Similar to the Goatman I grew up with in Prince George's County Maryland.


Ah The Bunnyman one of my favorite legends. I really want to go to Bunnyman Bridge

Virginia apparently has it's own Sasquatch known as the Beast of Gum Hill.

For me in the Southern part of Virginia all I know of is mainly ghost stories.

There is the Ferry State Plantation which is believed to be haunted by the Witch of Pungo......now that I know this looks like I need to set up a trip.

Of course they don't know. It won't happen for another 47 years yet.

"The Dark Murderer" is a legend among my old primary school and the Bunyip is a more general Australian legend.

Well there is of course Bigfoot...
There's also Trahlyta's Grave. It's from a Cherokee legend actually. The legend is a bit similar to Tir Na Nog, if you've heard that story. Apparently, a tribe living in the North Georgia mountains had found a magic spring that kept them young forever. A woman, Trahlyta, was supposed to be especially beautiful. Wahsega, a warrior from another tribe, tried courting her, but was rejected, so he settled for kidnapping her, and keeping her somewhere far from her tribe. Away from the spring, she began to wither away. Although he never let her go back when she was alive, Wahsega agreed to take Trahlyta's body back to the mountain where she came from. Both Native American and White travelers began throwing rocks on top of her supposed grave for good luck. Not a tale about strange monsters, but the catch is, when they started trying to build roads through the mountains, they were going to bull-doze through the grave, but the machinery kept breaking down. So, there's a large pile of rocks in the middle of an intersection somewhere in North Georgia (good thing there aren't any traffic jams in the middle of the mountains. I'm sure the Etowah Valley Historical Society wishes all construction equipment would breakdown when land developers try to build over rock piles.

Native American stuff is always so spiritually powerful. Like when the Mormons go to reservations trying to recruit they get chased by these beasts that can run as fast as cars. It only happens on the reserves though. I wonder if it's the people's beliefs being manifested or something like that instead of it being an actual entity

They seem to have a dark sense of humor too. I was at a fair the next over, and a Cherokee gentlemen tried to convince us he had DeSoto's head in a pot (it was floating in the river, apparently...)
