This photo was taken by a guest on our The Original Ghosts of Williamsburg tour at the Peyton Randolph House. Those who know this house will know it affectionately as the most haunted house in Williamsburg. Those who don’t know it are drawn in by its’ mystique and can’t figure out why.
Look at this photo right in the center and let us know if you see anything. There’s something there that’s definitely worth taking a look at. One of the best photos we’ve seen from our guests to date. It just goes to show you, you should always have your camera at the ready. 👻👻👻
At first glance..the lady in center walking toward the right side of the picture.. zoomed in saw Micheal Meyers looking face to the right .. the more I look the more I 👀. Cool picture.
That is the picture that a guest took on my tour! She showed it to me right after she took it! It really freaked me out! We were standing right beside that tree. It looks as though she is staring right at us!
Last time we went on a ghost tour there I was using my phone for pictures. Every picture I took had a fog in it, either on the edge, top or bottom. I thought it was because it was raining, but I had that phone for years and it never did that. During the tour I rebooted many times, tried different settings but nothing helped. The phone never did it again after that night.
I saw it immediately. Looks like a woman slumped over carrying a book
I saw it immediately. Great picture
I don't see whatever figure folks say they see. The fog is odd, I wonder what the temp was at the time. Is that square a sign? Also, looks like the shadow of the person's finger on the left. Which side of the house am I looking at? Everything odd I ever got there focuses on that staircase area on the left side as you face the front of the house from the street.
I took pictures of Peyton Randolph house but it was weird that at the side of the house near the tree it all of a sudden looked foggy
The big question is have y'all seen these pictures. I believe this was the same house. Hubby and I'd tour a few years back.
I see a faint figure standing there😱
Mays Landing Halloween tours and the Jersey Devil
Enjoyed the ghost tour
I don’t see anything except maybe a sign and some fog.

When you're a ghost tour guide, you do more than just tell stories- you sometimes find yourself being a part of one.
One of our guides, Denny, had an interesting experience late one evening in May of 2021 after he finished leading our Beyond the Shadows of Williamsburg tour. (The tour by the way starts and ends at Bruton Parish Church in the Colonial Williamsburg historic area). Our guests thanked Denny for a wonderful tour and parted ways for the night, which left him alone with nothing, but his thoughts. He leaned down to gather his things when he came under the impression that someone was watching him. Goosebumps formed on his skin. These feelings gently guided him toward the gate to the church cemetery where he looked for answers. There was nothing to be found though. Nothing that he could clearly see anyway.
Denny took his cell phone out and snapped three photos as quick as he could. When he went back and looked, there was nothing in the first photo. There was nothing in the second photo. In the third photo there was something. Not an orb, not some weird light anomaly, not a full-fledged human apparition, but the apparition of a white dog. A dog! Denny looked back at cemetery gate to verify and like he thought; there was nothing there. He even peeked over the walls of the cemetery to be certain. Once again, he found nothing. Yet here was this photo with a dog in it that needed to be explained.
After this took place, Denny reached out to a friend of his who used to work for Colonial Williamsburg's security team (also a paranormal enthusiast) to see what his thoughts were on the mysterious canine in the photo. His friend laughed and casually mentioned that the noted Reverend W.A.R. Goodwin who helped create Colonial Williamsburg was buried in the floorboards of his beloved Bruton Parish Church and it just so happened he had a dog that looked very similar to the dog in the photo. (The dog is allegedly buried with the good reverend, but that sadly cannot be confirmed or denied). As luck would have it, there was a photograph of Reverend Goodwin and his dog available for Denny to see. When he finally saw it, there was no doubt in his mind about it. The dog in his photo was the dog sitting in Reverend Goodwin's lap in the other photo. His name was Alaska and he was an American Eskimo.
The take-away here is this, are pets and their owners reunited in death to be together like they were in life? It's certainly a sweet sentiment to think about. We can't help but imagine the spirit of Reverend Goodwin going for late night walks with the spirit of his dog Alaska on DOG street in the moonlight.
Being brought up christian and told dogs don't go to the afterlife/heaven and aren't reunited with owners I've seen a couple dogs that passed over watching their owners when I worked for a Lady who owned several retired service dogs. A couple of them were her show dogs. It was beautiful that they came back to keep watch over her. I'm not the only one that's seen them either.
Got a couple odd photos around that cemetary myself, but it's probably bugs. The one I really can't explain is at the Kimball theater, and my camera was acting all kinds of weird at the Randolph House.
Sophia, you never know what your camera will capture.
D.C. O'Rourke definitely does more than just tell stories. What he did for me and my daughter and helping us contact my son will forever be etched in our hearts. Hearing my son clearly in his own voice say, "Love yall" and call me by name... and tell his sister happy birthday after midnight like she secretly only asked her brother to do... that was priceless.
This is one of those legends that’s totally creepy and gets passed down through the generations in Pennsylvania. Lots of people go in search of proof of Charlie No-Face and most come back empty-handed. Some will tell you they have met him though and share their tales.
Like any good legend, this one has a grain of truth to it. It’s surprising to think, but there was once a real man who’s horrific story paved the way for what we now know. He deserves to be remembered for who he was not for what he has become. His name was Raymond Robinson.
Well, it’s the end of 2021 as we know it. Might as well have a bit of fun. 😉 We’ll be spending our New Year’s Eve with The Original Ghosts of Williamsburg tour and The Extreme Ghost Tour. If you’re around, come out and see us. We’d love to ring in the new year with you.
For those who can’t join us, we wish you nothing, but the best in 2022. Be well and have fun tonight. Happy New Year 🎊🎆🎈👻
Next time you are in the area and looking for a place to stay, why not a haunted one? Just over in beautiful Charles City, VA lies a quaint little bed and breakfast known as Edgewood Plantation. The house was built in 1849, sits three stories high, has six bedrooms in-house; each with its own private bathroom. In addition to this two more bedrooms are in the renovated, old slave quarters; now called the cottage, which sits right next to the main house.
For years, people have been saying that the place is crawling with paranormal activity. Guests and employees a like have had their fair share of experiences. People have seen full-on apparitions, footsteps have been heard on staircases with no one attached, disembodied voices have been heard, doors have open and closed on their own and a lot more. Numerous paranormal teams have spent the night here and captured great evidence. Given its' ties to the Civil War history in the area, we're not too surprised.
