Founded in 1632, it's no wonder that there's some historical haunting going on in the old homes and streets.

While stories have evolved and may have a bit of a tourist aspect now, some truly believe that there's too much paranormal and suspicious activity to deny the historical hauntings.

To celebrate Halloween, Colonial Williamsburg is hosting a number of events.

They have an official ghost walk and the typical historical interpreters are donning some new, scarier clothing.

They're also putting on the 'Curse of the Sea Witch', a full night of haunted activities. This includes the Haunting on DoG Street, the Tavern of Terror and much more.
