About Us

Many people might not know that West Virginia Ghosts has been around since 1999. Long before it was “cool” or widely accepted to be a paranormal investigator. The founder of the website Jonathan Moore created West Virginia Ghosts. He was intrigued by not only his experiences but mostly from other’s accounts of their greetings from beyond the grave, he wanted to find a way to showcase these tales. Being a computer programmer, he built and designed the site we log onto every day.

The site was to be a collection of ghost stories and urban legends for the state of West Virginia. It grew from just those stories to a Message Board, a collection of sightings, and paranormal advice. Then in 2003, the server crashed. Jonathan then had to rebuild this website even when others said it was not going to go anywhere, it has now grown to over 1,300 members. With the age of Social Media such as Facebook, Google+, and others; the West Virginia Ghosts population has grown to over 20,000 loyal followers.

Motto and Mission Statement

To provide the public with untampered with, unedited proof of the paranormal. To provide the truth and facts when reporting about a haunting. We do not condone nor permit fakes, edited (unless for enhancing or zooming to make the anomaly more visible in the photo), fabrications or non-accurate accounts. We do not condone nor use Ouija Boards or seances to communicate with spirits or entities. These devices are best left to those who can and want to take on that responsibility. We also do not condone nor permit any team member to trespass on private property without prior consent nor do we believe it is a good idea to be in a condemned building for safety’s sake of all team members.

About the Website

The West Virginia Ghosts website is full of true paranormal stories submitted by those who have either lived in or been to the state of West Virginia. There are over 450 true accounts of encounters with ghosts, monsters, aliens and other spooky phenomena.
