A JOURNEY TO THE AMERICAN HOTEL AND DEPOT STATION
Let us embark upon a short journey through historic Staunton
as we travel back to the American Civil War for a haunted adventure.
Join us as we shall examine the historic aspect of the war and its
effect it had upon Staunton.

Certainly the war left a mark upon the Queen City, a mark or imprint
that continues to this very day.   Because you see, Staunton is indeed
haunted.   Some folks would actually say the town is very haunted.

Much of the haunted and paranormal activity in Staunton is
directly related to the American Civil War.   
It is certainly no wonder as Staunton was a focal point and objective
of the Union army from the start of the war because of the town's
direct link to Richmond via the Virginia Central Railroad.

Famous generals such as Robert E. Lee, Stonewall Jackson, Ulysses
Grant, David Hunter, Jubal Early, John Bell Hood and Pierre
Beauregard all made appearances here in the Queen City.
Some several times during the war such as Lee and Jackson.



Your tour will include stops at Mary Baldwin University, Glo Fiber
Building, Staunton Depot Station and the American Hotel.

Stories include Mary Baldwin and the Union Army, Murder at John
Beck's Saloon, D. C. McLewery - wrong place wrong time, Haunts
of the Selma Mansion, Suicide of Henderson Coe.

Your last stop and story is Dead and Wounded at the Depot Station.
This will included a visit INSIDE the American Hotel.   The American
Hotel served as a receiving hospital during the war from 1862 until
1865.   The hotel was no stranger to death and sickness.

The hotel is labeled as HAUNTED and is quite paranormally active
as numerous paranormal investigations has occurred
here over the years.
