Belle Grove Plantation in King George, Virginia is the historic property established in 1670 and is the birthplace of President James Madison. The current home was built in 1791 and has seen many events in American history including the Civil War. Known as one of the Most Haunted Plantations in Virginia, Belle Grove Plantation’s haunted reputation was cemented by a visit from the TAPS team on SyFy’s Ghost Hunters in February of 2014. Many paranormal teams have followed to conduct their own investigations only to confirm the active haunting. Most recently, Belle Grove Plantation was investigated by the Travel Channel’s Kindred Spirits in November 2018.

This paranormal and spiritual weekend kicks off with a Special VIP Friday. Early VIP Registration check in and VIP Meet and Greet Reception followed by an evening of VIP paranormal investigations. Saturday and Sunday will offer special lectures, a Q & A Panel, Gallery Reading with paranormal and spiritual vendors with equipment and specialty items available for purchase. A full day of special events will be followed by an evening of paranormal investigations on Saturday only. Join us as we assemble paranormal researchers and spiritual members for a three-day special event this September.

<Photographs, EVPs and Personal Experiences are too many to number. Below are just a handful of what you can expect for this event.

The Lady in White

The first documented sighting was in September 2012. First seen on the carriage side of the upstairs balcony, you can see her long, flowing white gown and long black hair. Is she waiting for someone to return? Seen in the Madison Suite (late night), in the Turner Suite window (mid-day) and at the white entry post (late evening) she tends to appear to men more than women. Photograph taken of her in 2017 is the only known photo of her.

Jacob

The first contact with Jacob was when the Darnell Family arrived in 2013. A fun and sweet spirit of a young boy is known to make his presents known by balancing a ball, moving items, playing with trays of coffee cups and turning items such as televisions and flashlights on and off. Two photographs have been taken of Jacob, both of him looking from a window. One EVP has been recorded in 2015 by a private paranormal team that revealed Jacob telling us he is 5 years old. Jacob is very attracted to younger guests.

The Cats

The first contact with the house cats was in 2013. While checking a couple in for an overnight stay in the Conway Suite, both innkeeper and overnight guests heard a cat meow. There were no cats in the house. The cats are known to walk across the bed at night, meow at random times and even purr in overnight guests’ ear as they lay in bed. Seen several times by guests in all parts of the house. One photography of both cats was captured in 2014.

Civil War Soldiers

As a Union Headquarters during the Civil War, spirits of that time pass tend to find their way back to Belle Grove Plantation. Soldiers walking past a window outside, standing guard at the white post, walking into the field from the side of the road and hanging out near the garage are just a few of the sightings of these soldiers. EVP sessions on the river side portico reveals a Union soldier who likes to talk about being from Michigan with a small family. The four soldiers who hang around the garage have even taken on the task of turning the lights on the garage on and off.

Slaves

Belle Grove Plantation was and still is a working farm. During the time of slavery, Belle Grove’s owner, Carolinus Turner had up to 92 slaves. The winter kitchen in the basement and the historic 1720 Summer Kitchen have revealed several spirits that have stayed with Belle Grove Plantation. Ava, Annabel, David, Daniel, Nathanial, Bartholomew, Anthony, George and Emily have come through during EVP Sessions. Ava was first seen in 2012 during mid-day walking out of the Summer Kitchen wearing a brown dress and yellow turban and was carrying something.

Previous Owners

The last family to call Belle Grove Plantation home before the Darnell Family moved in was the Hooker Family. Mary Hooker would call Belle Grove Plantation home from 1930 to her death in 1981. The Turner Suite, her room during her time at Belle Grove is considered one of the most haunted rooms in the mansion. One of the spirits is Mary Hooker. First seen in 2013 as the innkeeper was clean the bathroom after a guest had checked out. While cleaning the sink, she looked up to see Mrs. Hooker standing in the doorway watch. Making sure the bath was clean properly, no doubt. She would also make her present known during an EVP session in 2016. When asked to let them know if she was there, you can hear her reply, “Hooker”.
