We will be taking you to Williamsburg's most haunted, including the site deemed by psychics and empaths as the most malevolent, evil site in the whole area, perhaps in all of Virginia!
The world's first photographic study of ghosts, taking over 2 years and in excess of 10,000 photos (choosing only 230 of the very best photos) is available at Amazon, at the Schiffer Publishing website, and at your local Barnes and Nobel Book Store. Each location has a brief historical background, real ghost stoires, real personal experiences, insights and introspection by the author.
“Where are the dead? Are they still amongst us, possessed of that undefined, mysterious existence which the ancient world attributes to the ghosts of the departed?” —Lord Halifax-Charles Lindley Wood (1839-1936), Writer
The dead are within the pages of this book (Haunted Historic Colonial Williamsburg Virginia with Breakthrough Ghost Photography), they are in the homes, buildings, and streets of Williamsburg, and they are in your hometown, waiting for you to discover their undefined paradigm. Perhaps even Lord Halifax himself exists in this netherworld, casting out hints of his presence to those that are oblivious. Now you will learn what becomes of those caught between this world and the next-and what they really look like! —Tim Scullion Writer
Part II of this book is coming out next spring!Buy This Book
The Ghostographer, Tim Scullion, in the world's first photographic study of ghosts, discovered among the over 10,000 photographs of Colonial Williamsburg many phantom faces in the windows of Colonial Williamsburg's homes and buildings. Take a look at just some of the many haunting faces looking out from the windows of the 18th century capital. Some of the ghosts have detailed facial features and others are what the author calls classic whites. These are apparitions (like #3 below from the jail) that have a white to gray appearance, no recognizable facial features, 2 eyespots, and sometimes a nose and/or mouth feature. The first photo was taken at William and Mary's Wren Building, having a Santa Claus-like face that was probably from the 19th century when beards were popular. The second photo is from the Peyton Randolph House, and may possibly be the man that committed suicide in the house by putting a gun to his mouth and pulling the trigger. The third photo is a classic white from the Williamsburg Jail. The fourth photo is an intimidating apparition from the Peyton Randolph House that looks more like an animal than a human--do animals have souls too? (Scroll to the right) The fifth photo was on the chimney of the Wren Building(?)--could it be one of the lookouts from the Civil War? The next photo was taken at William and Mary's Brafferton Building, and appears to have 2 men from different time periods. (Look at the hairstyles.) The final photo is one of several ghosts from the Tarpley Store. See many more haunting faces in the book Haunted Historic Colonial Williamsburg Virginia with Breakthrough Ghost Photography!

The following photos are recent whole body apparitions that appeared on the streets of Colonial Williamsburg. Unlike the photos in the windows, these have less detail and are less recognizable. I believe it's because the window glass is like a conduit that enables a ghost to appear with more clarity. The first is a group of ghosts, probably from the 18th century because of the way the man on the left is dressed; this photo was taken on the Palace Green. The second photo shows a group of tourists and a glowing white ghost in a long coat and a tricorner hat gathered around one of Colonial Williamsburg's fire baskets. The third photo shows at least 4 ghosts on the walkway in front of Bruton Parish Church. The fourth photo has a first--a giant ghost towering over the tourists standing around him. The fifth photo appears to be a clergyman standing on the walkway between the Bruton Parish Church and the Palace Green. The sixth photo is a ghost hag, whose face is at the east wall of the Bruton Parish Church.The seventh and final photo is of a pair of ghosts that may be 2 young men dressed alike and walking on the same walkway outside the Bruton Parish Church.

Come join us on the only ghost tour in the world that not only takes you right in front of the haunted places, but also shows you photos of the ghosts that dwell there. Yes our guides carry with them a notebook of actual ghost photos from each site, and will both show you the photos of the ghosts and in many cases point to the specific window where the photo was taken—so yes you too can try your luck at photographing a ghost. Remember that ghosts were once people, and they don’t always show up where and when you want them to, but you may get lucky (like many of our guests have) and capture a real ghost on your camera. If you do capture something, we would love to see it and maybe even share it to our website! Please keep in mind that you need to purchase your tickets on our website because it is against the law for us to take cash on the street for your tour.
