Learn the Haunted History of One of America’s Oldest Towns

In 350 years, Williamsburg has been a town of great mystery. The town saw men and women accused of being witches and devils; sacred grounds destroyed and ignored for centuries to come; years of suffering, death and violence from wars, slavery and murder and acts far too horrible to even mention.

Indian Burial Grounds:

Unruly spirits rumble beneath your every step in Colonial Williamsburg. Built on top of sacred Native American burial grounds, Williamsburg has experienced strange activity for hundreds of years. Only recently have these burial grounds been discovered and we still only know so much about them. Walk through the long-since unknown and desecrated sacred lands from centuries past and listen to the story of Williamsburg Witch Trials that occurred on the very grounds you walk.

Murder Stories:

Learn of some of Williamsburg’s most complex and intriguing horror stories. Were these murderers ever caught? What drove them to such insanity? Was it a crime of passion? Could it have been an act of evil? Perhaps it was a symptom of the haunted surroundings of the land.

War Tragedies:

Two wars of great change happened in Williamsburg that shaped it forever. The Revolutionary War, which earned America its right to become an independent nation was the first large scale battle to involve Williamsburg. The Civil War, which pitted brother against brother and father against son, laid waste to Williamsburg and left 4,000 dead across the very land our ghost tours take place. What untold stories came from these hard fought battles? There’s only one way to find out.


Hear Tales from Renowned Experts of Williamsburg Hauntings

Williamsburg Ghost Tour has conducted several interviews with former Colonial Williamsburg staff. Our researches have worked hard to craft the true stories you will hear on the ghost tour through the Colonial Williamsburg area and William and Mary, the second oldest college in the nation.

Our tales start in the Colonial era where we will tell you everything about the not so peaceful beginnings of Williamsburg. From intense conflict to false accusations, every story will leave you shocked with what happened in the very place you’re standing.

After the Colonial era, learn about the violent destructive turmoil that Williamsburg underwent during the Civil War where 4,000 men lost their lives during an intense battle with casualties on both sides. Do you know of the amputation pits filled to the brim with severed limbs or the mass graves strewn throughout Williamsburg?

But that isn’t all. Don’t think the strange tales of Williamsburg reside in only the past. We have several stories from the present that will leave you just as bewildered. The history of Williamsburg is a complex one filled with the unknown and the Williamsburg Ghost Tour is here to tell you every detail, even the ones that have been hidden away for centuries.
