George Wythe, America's first law professor, taught Thomas Jefferson, Henry Clay, John Marshall, and others. His house is in Williamsburg, and there is rumor that -- from time to time -- a woman who died in the house by the name of Ann Skipwith emerges from a closet, examines herself in the mirror, and then vanishes. You can only tour the house with a Colonial Williamsburg ticket, but if you live in the area, attend William and Mary, or are related to someone who goes to William and Mary, you can get a free pass.
