Location History

Southwestern Virginia is home to small communities with deep ties to native American culture. Glade Spring was named after an Indian word meaning “this is the place”.

Sitting along Lee Highway is a historic home that looks a bit out of place among the hustle and bustle of the modern day. Did you just see something dart around the side of the building?

Here’s your chance to find out as you pay a visit to the Nickerson Snead House! The energy here has resulted in one of Virginia’s most notoriously haunted homes.

The Nickerson Snead house was built as a log structure by Francis Kincannon in the 1700’s that served as a fort in the French and Indian and Revolutionary wars.

Around 1835 Dr. Nickerson and Betsy Snead incorporated the log structure into the construction of the beautiful home that is seen today.

The Nickerson Snead house is one of the oldest homes in Glade Spring, VA. During the Civil War, the home served as a field hospital, with a temporary morgue in the basement.

After the deaths of Dr. Nickerson and Betsy Snead, the Nickerson Snead House was sold to the Mason family. The Mason family owned the home from the late 1800’s until the late 1980’s.

Today, the Nickerson Snead House is owned by Ricky and Rhonda Caudill, who purchased the property in 2004. The home is used for a variety of events, as well as a haunted house attraction in the fall.

Access to the Old. St. James Hospital was rarely ever granted, as it served as storage since the early 2000’s. The building is now open for events and Ghost Hunts USA has the chance to take you inside!

The Paranormal

The haunted Nickerson Snead House may give you more than you bargained for!

Like many other houses that served as hospitals or forts during a war, the frenetic energy of these soldiers remains. However, there’s a lot more to this location than the ghosts of a battlefield!

The Nickerson Snead House plays host to the mysterious “lady in blue” who is often seen. Is this the spirit of Betsy Snead? Perhaps she’ll let you get close enough to find out.

If you look closely around the house, you’ll find yourself staring at the statue of a dog. You may be the one who unravels the mystery of activity that is connected to it.

There’s a chance of encountering a number of other spirits in the haunted hallways of this home. Can you find clues as to whether improper medical practices occurred, or are they simply accusations?

There are also dark and curious things inside the Nickerson Snead House. Such as a doppelganger that imitates the living, or a creature who is seen that may feed off the energy on the property.
