A RICHMOND GHOST STORY

While looking into “Black Dog” legends, I came across the story of Hollywood Cemetery in Richmond, VA.  A little girl died back in the 1800s.  There was a statue that she used to play with when she was alive.  It was of a large iron dog.  As a gesture to the family, the statue was moved to her grave after she died.

It is said that her ghost sometimes returns to play with the dog.

Want to see a ghost?  Well, you better be careful and not get too close.  Some say the statue will growl if you get to close to her tombstone.  People also say that the dog itself changes position throughout the day, standing guard over the little girl.
