Based on true accounts, these Virginia stories will lead you through a cemetery walk. You will meet spirits of the past, brought to life for one night to tell their tales of how they perished. The naturally haunting atmosphere of Pamplin Historical Park will enhance your visit to our battlefield after dark.
Costumed guides portraying “agents of death” will lead participants by candlelight on a spine-chilling tour through the Breakthrough Battlefield. At various stops, guests will encounter victims of murder, stabbing, neglect, drowning, and more. These and other ghouls will recount their stories and share some of the details of their sinister past that led them to an early grave. Tours will be accompanied by sights and sounds that heighten the senses while breaking the silence of the night.
Based on original corner’s reports, the naturally haunting atmosphere of Pamplin Historical Park gives visitors a rare opportunity to experience the Park and battlefield after dark.
