Located in historic Williamsburg, VA.
Established in 1639, Williamsburg, Virginia continues to welcome locals and tourists alike who enjoy visiting the former English colony to see history come to life. In Williamsburg, people can walk through the restored colonial district of the city to see reenactors dressed in 18th century clothing or take a tour of the original buildings dating back over 200 years. Yet within the walls of these historic locations, visitors claim that the city’s former residents continue to haunt from beyond the grave.
Over time, the Peyton-Randolph House became the scene of many tragedies. During the American Revolution, the home served as a hospital for wounded soldiers. Most likely, a great many soldiers drew their last breath within the walls of the home.
In fact, many deaths occurred in the Peyton-Randolph House. A former Confederate soldier of the American Civil War passed away in the home after succumbing to illness while attending the College of William and Mary. Later, two men met their demise here after fighting to the death over a heated argument.
In the 19th century, a young boy died suddenly after falling from a tree nearby. Oddly enough, a little girl also died here after plunging from a second-story window of the house. Today, visitors witness strange movements from the second floor window. Perhaps the little girl continues to play inside the house.
