Designed by James F. Post in 1859 for the Bellamy family, the Bellamy Mansion was constructed out of the blood, sweat, and tears of both enslaved and freed black artisans and carpenters. With ten children, John and Eliza Bellamy had a twenty-two room home designed as well as additional buildings to serve as slave quarters and a carriage house.

With such direct ties to a period of U.S. history marred by gross human rights violations, the Bellamy Mansion is said to be haunted by both servants and members of the Bellamy family. On instances when paranormal investigators were invited into the home, they have claimed to have recorded several EVPs and witnessed unexplained noises and door slams. Today, the mansion is open to the public for tours and private events.

    Since I can remember, about 1 or 2 years old, I have had a recurring dream. I'm standing at about 1/3 up the stair case in the house looking down at a man with dark hair, parted in the middle, looking up at me with a smile on his face. The odd thing is that I was a woman in the dream, but I'm a man. I'm dressed in a flapper type dress and I'm happy to see this man. I can tell by the way that I feel that I care for and am happy to see him. As I get ready to speak to him, with a smile on his face, he pulls out a pistol and shoots me. I start to fall at that point and all that I can see are swirls of colors as I fade out. Then the next thing that I see is looking at the top floor of the house on the right side looking from the street. I see a glowing neon green light from the second window from the front. That's it, no more. I've dreamed this over and over since that young age. Can anyone make heads or tails out of this? I know that I can't. I've never stepped a foot into this house, but I can tell you what the first floor looks like, along with where the piano was, as well as where the small telephone table was. I know the print on the walls, and I know the odd color of yellow in the back kitchen window next to a small bathroom. Vining plants growing in the kitchen window as well.

  • Bellamy House/Slave Quarters

    Got several interesting pictures and experienced a very disorienting spot in the bathroom while standing right in front of the mirror. Wasn't looking for ghosts but excited we got some stuff. I'm also half African American and I wonder if that has anything to do with someone's experience at Bellamy Mansion.
