A Haunting Evening in HanoverVisit Website
As the Civil War waged on across Virginia, one county in particular sat in it's crosshairs: Hanover County. Bathed in not one, but two major American wars, Hanover County is home to a vast amount of history. Intertwined in it's stories of greatness and woe lay mysteries, hidden in dark corners of history - just out of sight from the mere passerby. However, late at night, bathed in the the pale light of the moon, those who dare might just be offered a glimpse into these mysteries...

The Depot changed hands or was destroyed at least three times, with it being fully restored as it stands today in 1866. Beaverdam Depot was a strategic point for transporting soldiers and goods, and it was here that the infamous "Grey Ghost" John Mosby was captured.

Ulysses S. Grant and General Robert E. Lee engaged in a series of actions against each other, ultimately resulting in a stalemate. The result? Out of the combined 117,000 - 153,000 men that engaged in war on this battlefield, over 5,500 were killed, wounded, or captured. As the troops moved out of the area, they found themselves just days later at another familiar location....Cold Harbor.

The earliest portion of the Tavern being built in 1791, there was a Tavern on the property spanning back to 1733. One of only a few surviving colonial-era Taverns in the United States, the Hanover Tavern hosted such historic figures as George Washington, Lord Cornwallis, Patrick Henry, P.T. Barnum, Marquis de Lafayette, and more. Both Union and Confederate troops utilized the Tavern on their way to and from the battlefields. Not only will you have the opportunity to investigate Hanover Tavern, but also the Historic Courthouse and Old Stone Jail as well - both hotbeds for paranormal activity.
For years, guests of each of these locations report eerie experiences of ghost apparitions, smells, and unexplainable noises. For the first time ever, we have access to investigate those claims. Are Union and Confederate soldiers still waging war at Hanover County’s North Anna Battlefield and Beaverdam Depot? Are previous Hanover Tavern keepers still roaming the halls? It’s time to find out for yourself.
