Our Story

At Richmond Historic Haunts Storytellers we focus on sharing the offbeat and overshadowed aspects of RVA’s history. We are the sister company of Haunts of Richmond Ghost Tours which was founded on the premise of sharing Richmond’s haunted history. As Haunts of Richmond grew more stories were collected, ghost and history alike. As a result, a mountain of fascinating information was gathered that did not fit with the ghost tours. Nevertheless, there was a strong desire to bring these tales forward in a way that would do justice to the history of Richmond, and those who lived through it.

We currently offer a variety of focused storytelling tours and events. These tours and events are available on a private basis and you can learn more about them on our home page here: Welcome to Richmond Historic Haunts Storytellers
We will also offer special public events occasionally throughout the year, so keep an eye on our social media pages to find out what’s new!

We hope that you will consider learning something new about Richmond’s fascinating history with us!
