|Our investigation began with the team setting up eight static IR
cameras with sound around the Mansion and slave quarters. Each
investigator wore a personal recorder and/or still cameras. With this
system we were able to go back to specific moments to listen if the
EVP recorded on multiple devices. We also could triangulate
location of person closest to the EVP event and double check for
false positives. Because the mansion is just a few feet to Market
Street, ambient noise from pedestrians and traffic was closely
Midway during our December 2010 investigation, we all heard one of
the main entry doors slam. We gathered by the front door to find
who slammed the door, but no one had. As we talked more, we
found that we all heard it clearly, but then we could not agree on
which door! On reviewing the personal and static audio, we found
that the sound level was the same, no matter where it was recorded.
The Bellamy Mansion is never in complete darkness: Street lights
provide ample illumination.
We do not feel that complete darkness is needed for any
investigations, but it is thought that the available energy used to
produce the faintest of images is quite high, leading to the theory that
spirit apparitions are more easily seen and can be captured on
camera with the lowest amount of light.
The Ghosts of Bellamy Mansion
Many different voices were heard during these three investigations.
We recorded the usual "GET OUT "and " Who is that?" ( Maybe the
spirits thought we were Yankee Soldiers.) More significantly we had
different personalities ( both male and female) respond in certain
locations. Braxton called out to Sarah in the slave quarters and when
she is addressed she is talkative and friendly. Questions to Dr.
Bellamy elicited stern responses, where as Mrs Bellamy
acknowledged our presents and was more welcoming than the Dr.
Mrs Bellamy was apparently very proud of her home.
In the front foyer a soft pleading male voice said" Don't leave
There also seemed to be a child that made itself known to the team
with short laughs, and the sound of a toy penny whistle.
The basement area consists of the dining room, butler's pantry,
kitchen and ironing room. There we ran into some one who stated"
Pick Up the Place, NOW!". We asked the entity if is was pleasant to
work for the Bellamy family: "No!" with the sound of a foot stomping
No correlation of Solar x-ray, Geomagnetic Activity, Temperature, or
moon phase data has been noted to explain the amount of activity at
the Bellamy Mansion.
We feel that this haunting is benign and does not seem to pose any
threat to those who work or visit the mansion. Be sure to be polite to
anyone you meet, just in case!
Port City Paranormal® began investigating The Historic Bellamy Mansion in the spring of 2010.
Because of confidentiality restraints requested by the mansion, we did not post our findings.
Late 2011, we received permission to publicly share our evidence. This is the and evidence story of
we collected on our first three investigations.
We were joined on these vigils by our good friend, Bellamy Mansion Curator,and resident expert
After careful review, we feel that this historic home is indeed haunted. Voices from the Bellamys and
their servants have traversed one hundred years to communicate with our team.
