Haunted Forest at Halloween Woods Virginia
MANY YEARS AGO, on the land that is now the haunted woods at Algonkian Regional Park, there was an elite boarding school for wealthy landowners’ children. The school was so remote that sometimes days or weeks passed and no one from outside the school grounds visited. The only one with access to the outside world was the caretaker who traveled to neighboring towns for supplies and mail. Legend has it that the caretaker had once traveled with a third-rate circus as a clown, but had been dismissed from that job because he secretly despised children, and was more likely to frighten them than make them laugh. Bitter over being fired from his circus clown job, the caretaker took great pleasure in the terror he caused the students of the school where he soon found employment. He was quick to punish any child who was found outside the walls of the school after the first school bell rang each morning. By road, the students’ dormitory was a half mile walk from the school building; however, there was a shortcut – a path through the dark forest. Don’t miss Haunted Forest at Halloween Woods Virginia.
