In 1977, an article was written about a strange light and ghostly sightings occurring at a 150-year-old Virginia church. Even after 40 years no satisfactory explanation has ever been supplied as to what really transpired there.
Excerpt an article written by Tom Tiede with the Times and Democrat (May 29, 1977)
For as long as anyone can remember there have been strange doings at the Olive Branch Methodist Church. In the dead of the night, when conditions are right an eerie light glows in the window of the hilltop tabernacle. The cause is unknown, but some people here think a ghost is at play.
The article described where several church members conducted an investigation to find the source. They explained it as cars coming over a hill and that the headlights hit church. However some critics said that theory only accounts for one side of the building and doesn't fully explain the phenomena.
