Bellevue Hall Mansion
Bellevue Hall Mansion Report
Delaware Ghost Hunters (DGH) conducted three separate investigations at Bellevue Hall mansion over the course of the first three months of 2011. The first investigation was a private investigation conducted exclusively by the Delaware Ghost Hunters with the next two remaining investigations being open to the public using our Ghost Hunting 101 format followed by an investigation at Bellevue mansion.
Over the course of our investigation many of our members had personal experiences throughout the mansion and some of those experiences we are able to back up with EVPs (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) and audio evidence. The Delaware Ghost Hunters believe the location’s basement to possess the most activity, having experienced more activity in there than any other location of the mansion. We believe it is pertinent to point out that two sets of teams received similar experiences in the basement at two different times. Given the types of activity encountered and the amount of collaborative evidence obtained DGH believes Bellevue Hall to possess evidence of paranormal activity and requires further investigation to confirm a haunted status.
The personal experiences from our private investigation range from team members hearing loud audible thumps on the third floor to what seemed to be, on several occasions, an unexplained and strange light anomaly in the basement of the mansion. There was also a report of hearing shuffling feet when everyone was standing still in the basement. These were only personal experiences however and were not recorded on any of our equipment.
On our public investigations we had several other personal experiences. Once again, the basement yielded the majority of the activity. Several investigators heard what seemed to be wood being moved or stepped on. The planks of wood were discovered, but no explanation for how they were moved or stepped on could be found. Again, these personal experiences were not documented on any of our scientific equipment, but were reported by several investigators present that night.
Upon review of our equipment we were able to find several pieces of evidence to strengthen our personal experiences. We captured three different EVP’s that we have, through tireless investigation and discussion, deemed unexplainable and possibly paranormal.
-The first two EVP’s (Electronic Voice Phenomenon) titled “Response in Basement 1″ and “Response in Basement 2″ were captured in the basement of Bellevue Hall on two separate devices. In the clip you will hear a team of all female investigators questioning what the “spirit” or “ghost” may have done in the basement. After the question is proposed they seem to get a response from something in what has been interpreted as a male voice. The response was not audible at the time and was caught in review on both devices.
-The third EVP captured titled “Knocking in Basement” was also captured in the basement of Bellevue Hall. In this clip you will hear one of our investigators asking that if anything was present with them, it would give them a sign by knocking on something in the room. A few seconds after this, very faintly, two knocks can be heard. The knocks were not produced by anyone in the room and this unknown response clearly catches the investigators off guard The knocks are very quiet and headphones may be required.
-The final EVP collected is titled “Strange Cry”. This EVP is of several of our female investigators just talking. In the background of the conversation another strange noise can be heard. This noise has currently not been debunked, but all possibilities have still not yet been ruled out. It remains, for the time being, as questionable but still an unexplained occurrence.
