Poor House Road tunnel in Lexington, Virginia is said to be one of the most haunted spots in the city. You can either drive or walk through the tunnel.

It was built to be a part of a railway in the early 1900s. When cars became more popular, there was no longer any need for the train tunnel

A YouTube user commented, "We also heard faint voices and as we were leaving, we decided to drive through it and back. When we reached the middle of the tunnel, I stopped the car to see if we'd experience anything. More voices and my friend said he heard something talking right at his open window."

The investigators explained that the tunnel appeared pitch black even when the sun was still shining outside. You can see a few spots where people have graffitied. One tag reads, "I can see you."

If you get out of your car and explore, you'll be able to see many creepy sayings and art pieces as you walk through — don't forget a flashlight!
