The leaves are changing, the nights are getting longer, and there is a chill in the air. In the spirit of Halloween, we’ve scoured the state and all the local housing markets to determine which we deemed to be the spookiest of them all.

As one of the oldest towns in the state, near the first permanent English settlement, Williamsburg takes the haunted cake with six homes in the top 25 most haunted places in Virginia. The Peyton Randolph House, the George Wythe House, and the Fort Magruder Hotel make up just a few of the spooky places to be found in Williamsburg.

If you travel across the entire state, the second most haunted area in Virginia looks to be Southwest Virginia, with three in the top 25. The landscape is a little different from the colonial settlement of Williamsburg, but these buildings do not spare the fright. St. Albans Sanatorium in Radford, the Historic Avenel in Bedford, and Major Graham’s Mansion in Wythe County are among the historic structures you can visit in this area.

Whether you are a REALTOR® in one of these markets or curious to come visit, do you dare check out these haunted properties during this spooky season?
