This is a Grave Talks CLASSIC EPISODE!

Williamsburg, Virginia, has a long history. Before it was Williamsburg, it was known as Middle Plantation, an unincorporated town founded in 1632. In 1699, it changed its name to Williamsburg. In 1932, Colonial Williamsburg opened its first public exhibition building. The site spans over 300 acres and includes 89 original buildings dating back to the 18th and 19th centuries. It also is home to some residents you can’t see—ghosts.
