The Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach, VA is haunted by a number of ghosts. Elevators run when no one is riding in them, toilets flush of their own accord, but that’s only the beginning of the paranormal activity experienced in this Virginia Beach hotel.The Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach opened in 1927. The first owner of the hotel shot himself on the 6th floor when he learned that Prohibition laws had been passed. But that’s not the only tragedy that has occurred in the Cavalier Hotel.
In 1929, Adolph Coors, founder of the Coors beer company, checked into the Cavalier Hotel and was given a room on the 6th floor. He mysteriously fell out of the 6th floor window and plummeted to his death on the concrete below. Nobody knows if he jumped out himself or if he was pushed.</p>Ever since then, receptionists working in the lobby of the Cavalier Hotel have reported receiving phonecalls from a room on the 6th floor. When security guards go up to check, they find the room unoccupied and securely locked. One security guard had locked up the hotel during the off-season. As he walked home, he looked back and noticed a light in a window on the 6th floor. He went back to investigate, searching the 5th, 6th and 7th floors of the hotel, but found no lights on at all. Years ago, a young girl was staying in the hotel. She had a pet cat that she smuggled into the hotel, because at that time, pets were not allowed in guests rooms. During the night, the cat escaped and wandered down to the pool where it fell in. The young girl went looking for her cat and tried to save it. Unfortunately, both the girl and her beloved cat drowned in the swimming pool. Ever since then, guests at the Cavalier Hotel have reported seeing a trail of wet footprints and pawprints leading down one of the hotels hallways. Though the girl’s ghost has not been sighted, people only occasionally report hearing the strange sounds of a cat meowing coming from the pool area. Some people were exploring the hotel and went up as far as the 5th floor. There, they encountered an elderly black man dressed in an old-fashioned bellboy uniform. He emerged from the darkened hallway and began waving his hands urgently at them. You don’t want to go up there, he warned, pointing at the stairway to the 6th floor. When they asked why, the old man’s eyes grew wide and he replied, There’s ghosts up there! When the people went back down to the lobby, they talked to the hotel manager who told them that the Cavalier Hotel hadn’t employed bellboys in decades. Over all most ghost hunters agree that the Cavalier Hotel in Virginia Beach is one of the most haunted places in Virginia.
Not sure if you had a legit candid of the Cavalier. I live about 25 minutes away from VA Beach and decided to catch decent a photo of it from the road while I was out there that day.

Tulip Staircase Ghost Picture
In 1966, Reverend Ralph Hardy captured the photograph, below, inside of the National Maritime Museum in Greenwich, England.
At the time, Hardy was seeking to capture a photo of the Tulip Staircase in the Queen’s House. To his surprise, Reverend Hardy captured a figure ascending the stairway, as seen in this picture.
Over the years, many experts have been unable to debunk the Tulip Staircase ghost picture. Interestingly, the staircase has been known for its haunting activity, such as footsteps and the occasional sighting of apparitions.
Some have thought the image to be a photograph of a painting, possibly. But, when looking closer, you’ll notice that this photo was taken from underneath a spiraling staircase. That means the steps on the left are actually underneath the ghost that is walking on the top of the stairs behind the railing.
Both hands of the specter are on the rail, and the head is hung low as if in a position of fleeing, or perhaps, sadness. Both hands on the railing are left hands - some say they both may have wedding bands on the marriage finger. [x]
Thanks a lot!!!! You’re awesome as fuck for reading it!!!!
Abandoned farm home outside of town. There were 8 cars left there (The blue one pictured has a pitch fork in the windshield). There was still toilet paper in the bathroom, and pictures littered the counter. The basement wall had caved in and I couldn’t really go down there. All the mirrors and windows were broken, everything was left there. I have no idea what happened.
Didn’t think ghosts were real..?

”Was taking pics of the 1913 barn in the middle of the day, did not see or hear anything at the time this shot was taken. There is paranormal activities that occurs on the property and inside the barn, but this is the first time a UFO has made a visit…”
In 1934, a Swedish archeologist discovered hundreds of ancient mummies buried under boats in a mysterious cemetery in a remote desert in the Xinjang region of China. The location, which is featured rivers and lakes thousands of years ago, was lost until 2000, and researchers began to excavate the area in 2003. They found the body of a woman thought to have died almost 4,000 years ago, who has become known as the most beautiful mummy in the world, owing to incredible well-preserved features that even include her eyelashes.
“My works are planes of temporal accumulation and push the image towards its dissolution. My attention is focused on the last moments of a work when a form of exhausted, at-the-limit beauty is impressed in it. I like taking the image to a breaking point, putting its form into danger.” - Nicola Samorì (x)
