This spring Colonial Williamsburg debuts Haunted Williamsburg: an exclusive new evening program that combines 18th-century ghost tales with stories of chilling modern encounters in the only ghost tour to bring guests inside the Historic Area’s darkened walls.
“Only Colonial Williamsburg invites guests after dark into historic sites like the Wythe, Geddy and Randolph houses and the Governor’s Palace to experience stories of the departed who haunt us today,” said Robert Currie, Colonial Williamsburg director of entertainment and evening programs. “Each night brings chilling tales of lost love, murder, betrayal, and things that locals will assure you still go ‘bump’ in the night.”
