Did you know Richmond has been the site of raids, revolution, and rebellion since the 1600s? A city with such a long and tumultuous history is bound to be full of ghosts.
A past full of violent and tragic events has defined Richmond as much as its noble and patriotic legacy as one of the country's most significant historical cities. From wars with Native American tribes to Revolutionary War battles to a Civil War siege and its aftermath, calamity has left Richmond covered with enough haunted locations to entice many a ghost hunter.
