The Oldest Ghost Tour In Virginia Is Not For The Faint Of Heart
Are you intrigued by the idea of touring one of the most historically haunted cities in the U.S.? If so, you might consider opting for the oldest ghost tour in all of Virginia. Known as the Original Ghost Tour, this experience of Williamsburg is certainly not for the faint of heart. Along the way, you’ll hear frightening stories as you explore some of the state’s oldest buildings — all by candlelight.
Here’s more about this bone chilling ghost tour:
You know how perfectly charming buildings can have a completely different allure at night? That's the exact phenomenon you'll experience with the whole town of Colonial Williamsburg when you embark on the Original Ghost Tour.
This candlelight walking tour of Virginia's most historic area is the oldest of its kind in the state. For over 30 years, this tour has taken visitors to sites of veritable paranormal activity.
The 90 minute walking tour is family-friendly, but that doesn't mean you won't experience some sort of chilling encounter. Many folks who have completed the tour recount chilling experiences of their photos developing in a rather unusual way.
Photographed below is an example of a strikingly bizarre photo development. According to the organization, when this photo was taken, the building was completely dark.
What sets this tour apart from others is that it doesn't rely heavily on theatrics, but rather historical accounts that are downright chilling.
If you're interested in taking the tour up a notch, you can sign up for an even spookier two-hour tour known as the Extreme Ghost Tour. This guided activity takes place later at night and offers an even creepier look into the haunted history of Williamsburg.
