The grounds near Calvary Episcopal Church are known for being a favorite “haunt” of the Phantom Rider of the Confederacy. This ghost is a woman with long blonde hair on a palomino seen near the road, then she gallops away quickly. She wears a Confederate cape and a filmy dress, and is believed to have been a woman whose husband was killed during the Civil War. Witnesses have seen her since 1865, when the ghost led 23 Union soldiers right into an ambush, exacting revenge for her husband’s death.
