Haunted Hampton Roads: Fort Monroe

Posted at 6:00 AM, Oct 27, 2016

HAMPTON, Va. - With over 400 years of history, Fort Monroe has to be home to quite a few haunted stories.

"We don’t do a whole lot of enhancements," said Aaron Whittington, the special events coordinator. "We don’t have a bunch of high tech visual effects and all that, we just want the locations and the stories tell themselves."

The retired Army base is home to over 100 historical buildings, all being used for this year's Ghost Tour.
Stories from residents, visitors and employees at Fort Monroe bring life to the ghost stories.

"I would say that Fort Monroe lends itself to very unique and unexplainable experiences," Whittington said. "I'm not an authority on what makes something haunted or not, but I certainly would say that if you come to Fort Monroe late at night or even during the day… its likely that you may have an experience that you cant explain."
