Hi everyone. I have a friend who lived in Virginia when she was a young girl. She told me of a old church in Virgina called the Aquia church, and about some of the ghostly things she saw there as a young girl. She told me that the church was part of the underground railroad for moving runaway slaves out of the south. I am wondering if anyone on this forum knows any of the stories about the church, or of any articles about it dealing with the hauntings? Thank you.......snookers.

I found the Church's web site. It's a beautiful looking old place.

On great fields something stays.....Spirits linger, to consecrate ground for the vision place of souls. And reverent men and women from afar, and generations that know us not and that we know not of, heart-drawn to where and by whom great things were suffered and done for them, shall come to this deathless field, to ponder and dream; and lo! The shadow of a mighty presence shall wrap them in its bosom, and the power of the vision pass into thier soles.-Joshua Lawrence Chamberlain

I use to live in Fredericksburg, VA -about a 15 minute drive from Stafford where the Aquia Church is located. I visited the cemetery there because I love photography and thought the grave stones there would make for some great photographs. I was right...

However, despite the many haunted tales, I did not find anything out of the ordinary during my few visits to the church. I did not, however go in because they had it locked. Because of the stories, the police patrol that area quite frequently at night time. It's very difficult to get up there at night because of this. That, and they have someone living on the premises.

It is a gorgeous church. It was interesting reading the above links. The only story I had heard about the church was that of the girl who was murdered in the belfry. There are many tales of that one...who knows how true they are. But nonetheless, it's a beautiful place to visit if you ever get a chance. The gravestones alone are a sight to behold.

Life is too short to take seriously, none of us get out of it alive.


Each morning when I open my eyes I say to myself: I, not events, have the power to make me happy or unhappy today. I can choose which it shall be.Yesterday is dead, tomorrow hasn't arrived yet. I have just one day, today, and I'm going to be happy in it.
