Location: Raleigh County, WV

This Ghost Light dates back to the Civil War era, the mid 1800s.

Samuel Richmond of Raleigh County was a staunch Union man who ran a ferry service across the New River near Laurel Creek. Samuel was shot by a Confederate sympathizer by the name of Jefferson Bennett in September of 1865. Samuel was shot in his canoe crossing the New River but managed to paddle back to shore before his life ended. He died from his gunshot wound near his home on the Raleigh County side of the river.

Many people have claimed to see what is called the Sandstone Ghost Light at night over the river. Many speculate the light is the spirit of Samuel Richmond as he makes his night time journey across the river for all eternity.
