Williamsburg, Virginia is perhaps the most historic location in the entire continental United States of America. It is where our nation was born and where life began. Some of the buildings that were constructed hundreds of years ago still stand and they still contain the energy of those hundreds of years of life that they endured. When you visit Williamsburg, you are immersed in the culture and time that the first Americans lived in.
However, Williamsburg does have a somewhat mysterious and dark side. According to the multitude of discoveries made by archaeologists over the years, the area that Colonial Williamsburg itself sits on is part of several Native American burial grounds. As most paranormal researchers and investigators are aware, when buildings are constructed upon burial grounds, the energy that has lain dormant for several years is, in a sense, brought back to life.
In most literature, building on burial grounds is viewed as desecration and is said to highly upset spirits. There are several theories as to why Colonial Williamsburg is so haunted to begin with. There are several Internet sites that give information in regards to theories and things of that nature and they are easily accessible. I will spare the details and get into telling my story.
In August of 2015, my paranormal group, Knight Time Paranormal, conducted a four-day investigation of Colonial Williamsburg. I had always wanted to investigate Williamsburg because of the stories I heard and the videos I watched about the ghost tours. I also love history and Williamsburg has more history than anywhere in the U.S. The evidence we captured was by far the most compelling and shocking evidence we have ever captured as a group.
The main locations we investigated were the Peyton-Randolph House and the Edgewood Plantation. As my group knows, those are my two most favorite places in the entire area. From the time we arrived to the time we pulled out of the parking lot, the Peyton-Randolph House was alive with activity. We heard countless knocks, bangs, footsteps, sounds of heavy objects being dragged along the floor. We also witnessed several light anomalies and mists. We also captured some of the best Class A EVP's and disembodied voices I have ever heard in my life.
However, our most chilling piece of evidence was the full-bodied apparition pushing a chair to the floor. I can recall sitting at HQ watching the figure (which was so black I could see it in the darkness) walk across the room, and knock over the chair. It was the first time I was completely speechless on an investigation.
I had a more personal encounter at Edgewood. I will give a brief description and if you want to know the full story, you contact me via email.
I cannot recall which room it was, but I was in one of the rooms and all was quiet... Too quiet... I turned on my SB7 spirit box and out of it came a torrent of voices. The only words I could make out were "gun", "help", "flower", and "west". I still question why those words were significant. After hearing those words I decided to go a different route and just use my body to communicate. I sat down on the floor and told the spirits to do what they wanted in order to communicate. After several minutes I was startled by a ice cold hand gripping my upper arm and pulling on me. What startled me the most was the hand was as cold as death. I felt the air around me drop in temperature instantly and as much as I wanted to get up and run, I held my ground and waited for the spirit to leave.
