About the Library

Not all stories are in books.

Welcome to the Appalachian Gothic library. This is a virtual tavern featuring odds and ends gathered through years of research. Topics covered include the paranormal, fantastic creatures, bizarre people and a host of obscure (and occasionally macabre) history. Feel free to pull up a seat and browse through history as you probably haven’t heard it.

Much of the research featured here comes from books, digests and magazines of antiquity. Publication dates usually range from between the 1700s and the 1900s. Often, much of it has been forgotten decades, or centuries, ago. The primary goal of our library is to form a database of facts and legends that aren’t found anywhere else.

This blog is currently headquartered in the Blue Ridge Appalachian foothills. My name is Laura Wright and I’m an author. My writing website is here. I avidly collect strange and unusual information, data, facts and figures, and most of them will find their way here.

Happy browsing!

  1. I’m interested in the story of Aunt Tabby. I’m a reporter with a local newspaper in South Boston and I wanted to gather some of the local tales for a fun, interesting feature story to kind of go along with Halloween. I noticed you have the story of Aunt Tabby which I am interested in, and I was wondering if I could the information as a resource, and where did you all receive your information on Aunt Tabby?
