Haunted Surry to Suffolk: Spooky Locations Along Routes 10 and 460 by Pamela K. Kinney will take you on a fascinating and spooky tour of sites that are said to be haunted. The author provided me with a copy of the book for this review. This book is available on Amazon in both paperback ($12.99) and Kindle ($3.99) formats. I love to read books that not only tell you about actual reports of supernatural happenings, but also explains the history behind it all. And conducting an independent investigation is just icing on the cake. This book is well written and holds you riveted as you turn each page.
About the book: Take a journey along Virginia’s scenic Routes 10 and 460 eastbound to enjoy the lovely countryside and metropolises that spread around these two roads. Most of all, discover that some historical houses, plantations, battlefields, parks, and even the modern cities, have more than touristy knickknacks, ham, and peanuts to offer. Many have ghosts!
Bacon’s Castle has had spirits haunting it since the 1600s. Stay in a cabin overnight at Chippokes Plantation State Park and you might find you have a spectral bedfellow. The city of Smithfield has more to offer than the world’s oldest ham...it also has some very old phantoms still stalking its buildings. Take a ghost tour of Suffolk and see why the biggest little city is also one of the spookiest.
Discover the myths and legends of the Great Dismal Swamp and see what phantoms are still haunting the wildlife refuge. And if that’s not enough, Bigfoot and UFOs are part of the paranormal scenery. These and other areas of southeastern Virginia are teeming with ghosts, Sasquatch, UFOs and monsters. See what awaits you along 460 south and 10. No matter which road you take, the phantoms can’t wait to SCARE you a good time.
