The Spirits (and Spirits!) of America's Birthplace
Did you know that some of the first buildings constructed in Williamsburg were taverns? They were the place to be in the 1700s.
Taverns, public houses, or ordinaries- whatever you choose to call them, these institutions were the backdrop of society in the 18th century, and a large part of colonial life. Things have changed so much in the last three centuries, as modern pubs, bars, and speakeasies are still a hub of entertainment today. The public houses of Williamsburg are some of the best places to hear chilling stories of tragic events, unexplained encounters, and restless spirits that continue to make their presence known in this illustrious town.
