I went and explored the Dejarnette. Everything was pretty chill even though we were there at 3 in the morning until we reached the third floor, however. There was a super loud bang, and it sounded like it was either above us or down the hall. It was loud like a bookcase had been pushed over or someone viciously having in the walls. Whatever it was we decided to leave. Also in one of the rooms the temperature goes down immediately as you step in. I'm
saying from where you don't need a jacket to where you instantly get goose bumps as you cross the entrance. I felt like I was being watched the entire
time. The whole experience was crazy.|

I lived on Thornrose Avenue in Staunton almost 17 years ago. We were across the street from the cemetery. I often had encounters with the spirits of at least two soldiers, one Union and one Confederate. The Union soldier I would often see standing in the doorway to my bathroom as I lounged in an old cast iron claw foot tub on the second floor. I would have my head back, almost upside down out of the tub, and would see him standing behind me. Also there was a HUGE amount of tension between the soldiers, as if they were STILL at war all these years later.
On two separate occasions I felt hands around my throat while I was sitting on the toilet. I would open my eyes and see a face on the wall next to me, almost growling. Then, the Union soldier would pass through that same wall in front of me, and the tension around my throat would release instantly. It was like he was there to watch over me. It didn't really surprise me to have these experiences being so close to Thornrose Cemetery where there are reportedly over 1700 soldiers buried there. It was also probably in an area of battles of the Civil War.
