George Washington selected 2,000 acres of verdant Virginia countryside for Woodlawn Plantation - his wedding present to foster daughter Eleanor (Nelly) Parke Custis and favorite nephew, Major Lawrence Lewis. After choosing Dr. William Thornton, architect of the U.S. Capitol, to draw up plans for the mansion, he often rode from Mt. Vernon, three miles away, to personally supervise construction. Tragically, Washington died before its completion and, according to historic records, never stepped foot in the finished manor. Or did he? Some witnesses believe his great obsession for Woodlawn compels his ghost to return, even to this day, time after time, circling the drive in moonlight on his great white horse. Others claim it is indeed the image of Washington's foot (dressed in a buckle shoe) that was captured accidentally in a contemporary photograph of needlework on a chair. Such unexplained mysteries are among many strange phenomena that surprise Woodlawn visitors year after year: glowing masked figures and eerie footsteps in the night, billowing circles of light, the aura of an impish girl, locked doors, candles that relight by themselves, an unseen presence that terrifies resident cats and chaotic events caused by wrathful spirits trapped in the "Well of Souls.": Skeptics beware! You too may believe in ghosts after reading these compelling, enduring and convincing tales of the specters that haunt Woodlawn Plantation.
