Enjoy this guest post by Allison Michelle Dienstman of Colonial Ghosts, a historic ghost tour through The College of William and Mary and Colonial Williamsburg in Virginia!
Many visit Virginia to tour its historical landmarks, from George Washington’s Mount Vernon estate, Colonial Williamsburg, or the Jamestown settlement. Indeed, as one of the thirteen original colonies, Virginia has seen everything from Indian massacres to pirate raids, the American Revolution to Civil War battles.
With so much history hidden in its cities and backwoods, it comes as no surprise that many of Virginia’s historical locations have the reputation for being haunted. Some spy the ghosts of Native Americans floating under the moonlight. Others have seen the apparitions of colonists walking through the hallways of their former residences. With so many accounts of paranormal activity, it seems hard to deny that Virginia has some of the most haunted locations in the United States.
