Martha Washington Inn - Abingdon VA Real Haunted Places
Despite its name, the Martha Washington Inn and Spa was actually built by War of 1812 hero General Francis Preston in 1832 as a home for his family, which included nine children. The opulent inn does have presidential connections, however, as Harry Truman, Eleanor Roosevelt, and Lady Bird Johnson have all stayed here. The inn also seems to home to a permanent resident—a ghostly young woman who roams the building in search of her lover. Rumor has it that no matter how often the inn replaces its carpets, phantom bloodstains belonging to wounded soldiers keep reappearing.
