Country Living suggests its readers take a trip to Williamsburg to enjoys its haunted history and ghost tour. 

In a "10 Haunted American Cities" list, the publication says, "Williamsburg plays host to a number of ghosts, from Revolutionary War soldiers to former prisoners of the Williamsburg jail. Meet them all on the Colonial Ghosts Tour."

Longevity plays a role in the increased activity of hauntings, according to the Ghost Tours website.

By its very nature, Williamsburg ghosts date back even before the 17th century, when the area was occupied by the Powhatan Indians. Nearly 350 years of people living, murdering, dying, being enslaved, and suffering are enough to make their mark on any area, the site states.
