Welcome to Charles Town, West Virginia – founded in 1786 by Charles Washington, youngest brother of President George Washington.

A very old town – and very haunted!

Why do the spirits of children still play in the cemetery? Why does Mary Turner Allibone still sob late at night? What ghost train still runs through Charles Town?

Find out when you join Ann Khiel Fern as she takes you through the darkened streets of Charles Town and tells tales of the town’s history, as well as its hauntings.
