Edgar Allan Poe Museum - Real Haunt in Richmond VA
The shadow figure seems to be attached to certain exhibits in the museum, chief among them Poe’s old walking stick and his wife, Virginia’s hand mirror. He has also been spotted in the garden and hallways, and captured on photographs standing behind tour groups as if he were with them, listening to the guide. In one peculiar event a shipment of Poe bobbleheads arrived at the gift shop one night, and when employees arrived the next morning they found that shelves had already been neatly lined with the little figures. There were no workers in the building overnight, and the burglar alarm was never tripped.

Where is the water
We entered into the Visitor's Center, where we simply bought tickets and looked through the gift shop. Then we went into the garden area. Here, it was literally silent. We could not even hear the water moving in the fountain (which I noticed because I have been to that garden before and really heard the fountain quite loudly). But I guess that could be for any reason. We walked through each of the exhibits (death, life, birth in that order-- because we accidentally started at the end). I don't recall anything out of the ordinary happening in these places except loud wind noises and a very, very, very creaky staircase, but that could be explained naturally.Posted 11/26/18
