By the Side of the Road Bed and Breakfast - Real Haunts in Harrisonburg VA
By the Side of the Road’s main building has a long history, having been built a short time after the Revolutionary War and used as a makeshift hospital during the Civil War. When Union soldiers burned down much of the surrounding area in 1864 this brick building would not catch fire, prompting soldiers to commandeer it as a haven for the wounded. Visitors have noticed some ghostly activity in the home, mostly in the form of strange sounds and doors opening or closing by themselves. It is thought that these ghosts are the restless spirits of Civil War soldiers who came to the hospital.
