Once capital of the colonies, Williamsburg possesses a deep history stretching back to the 18th century, and Allison Wildridge and her associates illuminate the city’s many legends on this 60-minute walking tour by lantern light. Guests are encouraged to participate and may even experience some of the sights, sensations, thrills and chills of this unique city’s former inhabitants.
What made Williamsburg eerily different? As a young, colonial capitol, Williamsburg saw cultural and political struggles not typical of every town. These struggles have been memorialized by the departed, who want you to remember them, too!
The tales of cruelty, infidelity, and longstanding political feuds are fodder for your AxWild Ghost Tour. Many tales are preserved only by AxWild Ghost Tours and our guests.
