Haunts of Richmond was named by the founders, Scott and Sandi Bergman. They wrote a book, Haunted Richmond: The Shadows of Shockoe, and then they opened a haunted house attraction on 18th St. in Shockoe Bottom. The rooms were based on the stories in the book. After the first year, my people were asking when does the walking tour leave? That is when Haunts of Richmond ghost tours was born.
