Stafford, VA is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Aquia Episcopal Church. Come Explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
Aquia Episcopal Church was established in 1667 and is the oldest Church in the county. Construction on the current Church began in 1751, burnt in 1754, and rebuilt in 1757. The Church survived the War of 1812 and served as a stable, hospital, and campsite for the Union Army during the Civil War.
In the mid-1700s, a woman hiding from highwaymen within the Church’s walls was killed. Unfortunately, her body was not discovered until years later when the Church reopened after the Revolutionary War. Many visitors have reported hearing footsteps running through the graveyard accompanied by the sound of a struggle. Others claim to see the figure of a young woman looking out the balcony window.
