  1. My daughter and I stayed at the Williams House several years ago and had quite an experience. It started while we were trying to get ready for bed and didn’t end until we were leaving the next morning. At one point it was quite startling–to the point my daughter couldn’t sleep all night. Still, it was a wonderful stay.
