3. Haunted Hunt Club farm, Virginia Beach
The history of Hunt Club Farm goes back to the 60s -the 1760s, to be exact, when the area was first developed as Woodhouse Plantation. In fact, the original house still stands today, and is on Virginia Beach’s Historical Register. Skip ahead 200 years to the early 1960s, when a young military wife and mother, Mrs. Mary Vogel stumbled upon a 200-acre tract of land with an abandoned farm house on London Bridge Road and recruited 14 families to purchase it. They renamed it Princess Anne Hunt Club Properties, and subdivided it into “farmettes” that were a minimum of five acres each. The goal wasn’t to create an equestrian community. The Vogels’ son, John D. Vogel – known as J.D. – became a farrier after graduating from Kellam High School.
He started growing produce on the farm and opened a farm market at the front of the property. He grew various vegetables, strawberries and pumpkins. Mary Vogel passed away in July of 2006. Mary was well known in the dog breeding world for her Vogelflight Bichon Frises. She was actively involved as a competitor and a judge at dog shows around the country. She loved working with her dogs, spending time with her family and looking for “finds” at antique auctions around town.
Hunt Club Farm is open each year from April 1 through New Year’s Eve. We welcome you to explore our website for a peek at the exciting experiences that we offer. We hope to see you on the farm!

5. Gallows Dead Oak Hallow, Elliston
As you walk through our attraction know you’re walking on the very ground the Woodson Massacre took place nearly 40 years ago. The scenes you’ll see are real and tell a true story – a story of massacre, bludgeon, and atrocity; The Woodson family had called the mountains of Virginia home for years, 13 of them,led by their father Otis and their mother Bernice you couldn’t find a family closer to one another – isolating themselves from society – No one knew if they actually existed, only myths passed down of rituals and bloodshed.
The occasional hunter not coming home for dinner or the group of girls who wandered too far out into the woods. The locals knew the hills could talk, they just couldn’t quite understand what they were saying. As the population of rural Appalachia grew, the Woodson’s family’s grounds got smaller and smaller, and their secrets closer to being exposed. In 1978, Otis passed, and the family had enough.
Evidence from the crime scene tells us that anyone who unknowingly stepped foot on their ground was slaughtered. They used their victims for rituals to bring back family members since passed, for food, and their own pleasure Some victims were made to tie their own noose –all marked the same way a “X” on the forehead. Legends passed on since have named their home Gallows because no one ever made it out alive.
