The Spirit of ’76: 10 Best Cities with Haunted 4th of July History

Happy Independence Day America!

I recently wrote an article for Destinations Travel Magazine‘s “Haunted Places” issue (I think it comes out in August) that required a bit of research. In so doing I was reminded how many haunts are attributed to the events of the American Revolutionary War. (Around these parts, by that I mean Nashville, it’s easy to forget there are haunted places attributed to a war besides the Civil War.)

At any rate, this is my 4th of July salute to the brave men and women who stood true to their beliefs and revolted against Great Britain 234 years ago to found this country I proudly call home.

The list below represents 10 of the best Colonial American haunts still infused with the Spirit of ’76 —or spirits I should say.

  • Boston, Massachusetts
  • Charleston, South Carolina
  • Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia
  • Newport, Rhode Island
  • Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
  • Savannah, Georgia
  • St. Augustine, Florida
  • Stony Point, New York
  • Wilmington, Delaware
  • Yorktown, Virginia

I hope you have a happy, fun, and safe 4th!
