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.

    Myself and a my close friend are Paranormal Investigators on YouTube and my family is from Dickenson County. My parents live in Coeburn. I live in North Carolina and my friend lives in Texas. We are going to be heading to Virginia to do some investigating. Was wondering if possible could we maybe come and stay a night at your beautiful hotel and do a investigation. Growing up I have heard so much about the hotel and now that I am a paranormal investigator I would so love to do a investigation. Would love to share a experience there and hopefully share the experience with other's . If possible we would love to learn all we can about the Martha Washington Inn... Hope to hear from you soon. Thank You and God Bless.
