Carlyle House, Alexandria
We spent an evening last February investigating the Carlyle House. Three mysterious deaths occurred
on the property between the late 1870s and early 1900s. The building was part of a hotel the turn of the last century, and
fell into disrepair over the decades, but now serves as a museum. Footsteps and strange noises are occurrances there, but
the haunting is very subtle.
Old Town Theater, Alexandria
One of the odd occurrences about the theater is the dancing orb in the set of seats to the right
of the projection booth. Nothing is seen with the naked eye, but the orb shows up in pictures in roughly the same place.
There are also reports of giggling and even staff members getting pinched in the projection booth.
The Historic Bailiwick Inn, Fairfax
The inn is the perfect place for a couple who loves ghosts and want to get away for the weekend!
There have been at least three apparitions seen, cold spots, mysterious water spots and doors slamming in the building which
are quite common.

Boom mike audio
Last Friday at the Christmas Attic on Union Street we had a strange occurrance with an odd bell ringing
sound. The spirit bell was hanging downstairs, and no one was on that floor. Here Al & Chief Op. John try
to re-inact it. The sound was picked on the reporter's boom mike as well! Thanks again to Eric and Tyler for accompaning us.
Legend says the Christmas Attic is haunted by a sea captain, but DCMAG agent Alvin saw the ghost,
and his style dates much later. He's known to touch female employees and customers on the shoulder and stroke their hair,
and tangles up the Christmas lights.
House in the Country Christmas Store, Alexandria
Laura was horribly burned to death in 1868, just days before her wedding. Since then she has haunted
this location on Fairfax and King. Two DCMAG members have heard her say "Hello", and once a battery-powered christmas stocking
started flashing while we were conducting EVP's. Stop in and say Hello to Laura, shes a very sweet ghost.
The Occoquan Inn, Occoquan
Legend has it an Indian Chief haunts the restaurant. Activity is especially predominant in the ladies'
restroom upstairs. Trustee Andy has been there several times, and caught the apparition on film.
