Grace Episcopal Church in Yorktown

There are a couple of stories about Grace Episcopal Church on Church Street in Yorktown, which has been standing since 1697. The first involves a ghostly Colonial-era funeral seen taking place in the cemetery. The first report dates back to the 19th century. The second story is of a woman who is seen inside the church holding a lifeless baby and crying before the altar. She disappears before anyone can approach her.Dave Bowman, Daily Press
