Diggs is a picturesque little coastal town that at first glance looks like any other rural Virginia town. However, there is more here than meets the eye. Located deep in the woods on an unpaved back road is one of Virginia’s most haunted hotspots, which is known as Old House Woods. For more than 200 years, people have been reporting sightings of green ghost lights; skeletal sword-wielding pirates; spectral British soldiers; headless dogs that will attack your car; a ghost ship that appears before a coming storm, sailing from the bay up and over the tree tops; as well as a woman in white who wails from the trees during a storm. There are also reports of a mysterious fog that appears and just as quickly disappears, as well as headless pirates that come out of the bay searching for their buried treasure. It is also said that there is a time vortex in the woods that has taken people away, never to return.
