Recently, our guides
recreated the haunting 19th century love
story of Laura Schafer and Charles Tennesson
for the Travel Channel.
The episode related the heartbreaking 1878 tale of the beautiful Laura
and the devoted Charles. It aired on the Travel Channel’s program “Weird
Travels” in December.
Some say this beautiful young woman still lingers in Old Town to this
day. The segment was filmed at the quaint Old Town shop, The House in
the Country, on Fairfax Street in Alexandria.
To discover how this tragic tale turns out – join us on our Ghost & Graveyard
