One of Virginia’s Most Haunted Mansions!
The 1870 Octagon Mansion at 585, Wytheville, Virginia
The mansion’s famous poltergeist could be a little girl who died tragically during the 1950’s polio epidemic. Or, is there another presence that likes to throw rocks and spook visitors? Dubbed by some as the “scariest place” in Virginia, 1870 built home has been a bakery and a real estate office before standing empty for a decade. After new owners called in paranormal investigators, the house has been a hotbed of spooky activity and a regular location for professional investigators and ghost hunters to visit.
For this ghost hunt, you’ll need sleeping bags and camp beds but if you can make it until morning there’ll be breakfast!
During one “Dinner with a ghost,” evening organized by John Cushman where twenty curious visitors attended the house, its spirits were asked if they would like the visitors to leave, and to give a sign. Guests were astonished when the locked front door flew open, not once but twice.
Investigators also report speaking with the spirit of the little girl who says she died in the building. And, one skeptic left the house running after he felt a hand on his shoulder in the basement.
The makers of the widely published short film, available on Amazon and YouTube, India Hopwood and Connor Biddle, recorded communicating with a potential spirit. They were themselves alarmed and unnerved when a rock was thrown across the room by an unknown presence and strange noises began around the house.
There is certainly plenty to investigate at the Octagon Mansion with visitors experiencing supernatural activity within just minutes of arriving.
