This spectacular antebellum, historic and haunted mansion is a must see for curious travelers of the southwestern Virginia. As you approach the Major Graham Mansion it rises like a phoenix in front of you. Located just 10 minutes and two turns from Interstates 77 and 81 in Wythe County, you will be amazed as you walk through the grandeur of this magnificent property and learn the secrets of the Graham dynasty. Indeed as the Major Graham Road hardtop turns to gravel it becomes your portal to the past and real time seems to fade as you pull up to its massive iron gates. Originally called “Cedar Run”, the mansion and surrounding hills have long since been named for Major David Graham, Civil War hero and son of the family patriarch Squire David Graham. Legend has it that Confederate officers held secret meetings in an upstairs bedroom and J.E.B. Stuart was a frequent young visitor. But be forewarned………….many a visitor and passerby has come away from their journey to the mansion experiencing strange, unexplained phenomenon.
