Staunton, Virginia Ghost Sightings
I live in a house that was built during the Civil War. I'm fairly sure my home is not haunted but I have felt a presence behind me in my living room and on the stairs several times. It's not paranoia because if it were I would feel a presence behind me in other places too yet I don't.|
The house is on Hebron road if anything knows anything about it.

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.

Comment by Dianna: Hey my name is Dianna. I am more known for my youtube beauty channel although I did just start my paranormal channel as well. I also live in Staunton VA and I was wondering if you still live in the area if you'd be willing to meet up with me and tell me more about your experiences! I'd also love to film some of it!
