Ghost Hunting Tours
Is Belle Grove Plantation Haunted?

Many people and paranormal teams have tried to answer this question. Even the SyFy Channel’s Ghost Hunters and Travel Channel’s Kindred Spirits has investigated. All that come away have the same answer . . . there is definitely something there.
We have seen apparitions. We have heard voices and sounds. We have seen a ball of light in broad daylight! We have photographs that just can’t be explained.

Now we are challenging you to find out for yourself!

Come join us as we do our own paranormal investigation of the mansion, outbuildings and grounds.

A Ghost Hunting Tour like no other!

Unlike most Ghost Walking Tours, we don’t just tell ghost stories. We go looking for evidence of our ghostly residents using paranormal investigative equipment. Our tour guides are a professional paranormal team, Fredericksburg Paranormal and Research Investigation. With years of experience investigating haunted location, they will guide you in learning how to investigate correctly and how to interpret results.
