This happened to my family I would say about two weeks ago. It was Labour Day weekend, and we were on vacation to Richmond. One of the things that we were going to do was to take a ghost tour around the Shockoe Bottom area, which started at the Poe Museum. My mother and I had been there once before so we knew where to go and what was in the house. We got to Poe Museum way earlier than when the tour actually started, because my mom always likes us to get to places really early. The tour guys let us in so we could walk around the gift shop (also the first room you walk into when going through the front door). I was searching for the awesome pen I had gotten the last time I was there and had unfortunately run out of ink. Sadly it wasn't there that time, so I was browsing while my mom talked to a tour guide about different things, and my dad went back to the car to get something.
Now in the centre, towards the right side of the room (if you were looking from the front door) was around table that held some merchandise. On the top rounded shelf was a cute little wooden figurine sitting snugly on a wooden horse. There were a few of those on the table, at the time. I was facing towards the back wall when my dad came back into the room. I heard him cross the room and get most of the way around the table before I heard something fall. Everyone stopped talking and turned. I thought that my dad had knocked something over, but instead he thought that I had he knew he didn't even touch the table. Of course I wasn't even moving nor near the table. We were the only ones close to said table at the time. We all went over to look what fell over, and found that it was one of the figures that rode the horse, lying on his back. Now think about this for a second. If it was the wind from closing the door (which it wasn't it was very hot that day and hardly if any wind was blowing), then the figure would have fallen on his back directly behind the horse, and the horse would have moved or gone down with him. This was not the case. Instead the figure was about a good two inches to the side of the horse. The horse did not move at all. And it was lying on the side of the table where I was standing. I joked that it could have been a ghost, not knowing what I know now. Because when the tour started some 40 minutes later, the first story they told us was about a little boy seen and heard in the Poe House where we were. Not only this but he is known to move toy objects in the gift shop around. I will give a bonus to go along with this. I have a tendency to keep staring at places where I later find out (or know) there are ghost. This isn't because I am looking for something to see so much as having my attention drawn to a certain area.
After leaving the main house of the Museum we were to sit the in courtyard outside. There is a side building (also part of the museum) that kept drawing my eye to the top story window that was completely dark. I was nervous, and scared that I would see something (although I never did) I couldn't seem to stop staring. After more people came, I was able to keep my eyes away from the window. But I didn't think much of it beside me being creeped out by it. When the tour guide was going through how haunted the Museum was, he told us a story that a woman is seen in that same window looking down into the courtyard on multiple occasions.
When I first went to the Poe Museum, and even before the tour started, I had NO idea that the place was haunted. It didn't really surprise me, but any creepiness that I felt while I was there either time I just believe to my imagination. I guess I should visit again sometime soon.
