I live in a very historic and haunted part of Virginia called Olde Towne Portsmouth. It's on the east coast of VA. We actually have a ghost walk on Halloween. We start at Trinity Church graveyard where we are then captured and held by "musketpoint" by several confederate soldiors that walk us through many more haunted sites. Some of the buildings date back to the early 1700's. Many of the ghosts died of the yellow fever epidemic of 1855.

There is also the original Portsmouth Naval Hospital which was converted into a meternity hospital. It is very old and spooky. We have lots of military (naval) people here and many of them have encountered a ghost baby on the 4th floor of the old hospital. The floor is closed to the public now but I always look up at the windows when passing by the place hoping to catch a glimpse of something.

Wow! I will have to check out Olde Towne...I live in nearby Suffolk and have yet to check out the old houses etc. down there. There are really some beutiful old homes, etc...many of which I am sure are haunted.

Just moved up around a year ago from North Carolina and still exploring.
