In the 19th century, the Battle of Williamsburg was fought in and around Williamsburg, resulting in more than 4,000 casualties. The now-peaceful streets of Williamsburg were once riddled with corpses and the cries of pain and suffering from the wounded men lying mangled and bleeding in the streets from their wounds.
The damage done by the Civil War left scars upon the town for generations to come — the result of which are the chilling tales you’ll hear on our Williamsburg Haunted Pub Crawl.
During our Williamsburg Haunted Pub Crawl you’ll visit some of the city’s most popular drinking hotspots downtown…all of which have ghostly stories connected to them! Our stories and hauntings include pre-colonial events, through the Colonial era, to the Civil War, and even to the present day.
You might feel the presence of those who died in the Spanish Flu pandemic of the 1920s and are buried under the reconstruction of Colonial Williamsburg. From tales of brothers who fought on opposite sides of the Civil War to romantic trysts gone wrong, you’re sure to be entertained by Williamsburg’s lesser-known history.
Hear the story of the Wren Building, an iconic and original building of the College of William and Mary, where people report seeing a man in a French uniform wandering the halls at night with a bloody bandage wrapped around his head. We’ll tell you the tale of Thomas Moore – a womanizer killed by his lover’s jealous husband – who likes to flirt with the ladies at Dog Street Pub.
From the College of William and Mary to the well-beloved brewery, Precarious Beer Project, we’ll show you the best spots in Williamsburg that go beyond the tourist traps!
There’s no better way to get a sense of Williamsburg’s undeniable charm than with our local experts of ghouls and libations.
Meet new people from all walks of life who are also interested in the celestial and the occasional drink or five.
There’s never been an easier icebreaker than devils and drinks! See the scary and unspoken side of the city through the eyes of local guides who know Williamsburg better than anyone. You’ll end the night not only visiting some of the most talked-about bars in the city but also armed with enough festive facts to enthrall your friends back home.
Dog Street Pub has a unique and eccentric history and story. Eighty years before owner and executive chef David Everett decided to add it to his local offerings, Dog Street’s building began as a bank and was already inhabited by the ghost of Thomas Moore.
The story of Thomas Moore is one of romantic intrigue and furious revenge – a husband betrayed and a man killed in his prime.
Berret’s Seafood Restaurant and Taphouse Grill has been Williamsburg’s favorite seafood restaurant since 1983. Located in Merchant Square, Berret’s is only one block from Colonial Williamsburg and is situated across from the College of William & Mary.
Merchant Square has a long history of hauntings, with its current parking lots being used for burial dumping grounds over the years.
Williamsburg’s Public Hospital for Insane and Disordered Minds was one of the first dedicated buildings for the purpose of housing and treating the mentally ill in the United States. Its patients suffered inhumane treatment until a brief respite under the leadership of superintendent Dr. Galt.
Unfortunately, the original hospital building was destroyed by electrical fire in 1885, during which one unknown female patient was burned alive. Today, the ghosts of former patients roam the halls of the hospital, seeking justice for the way they were treated during their lifetimes.
