Danville Museum - Real Haunt in Danville VA
The Danville Museum of Fine Arts and History was established in 1974, with its headquarters being the historic Sutherlin Mansion. This 1859 home was originally built for tobacco baron and industrialist, Major William Sutherlin; it was also the temporary home of Confederate President Jefferson Davis who issued his last official proclamation in that capacity during his week’s stay here in April of 1865, giving rise to the house’s popular nickname, “The Last Capital of the Confederacy.” Visitors to the museum say that they have heard disembodied footsteps and seen the apparition of a woman in the building’s mirrors. Phantom cigar smoke has also been reported, as have the moans of a girl.
