Bellaire House, built in 1904 over a ley-line, is considered by many one of the most haunted properties in Ohio.
Besides this geographical impact, haunted properties thrive on nearby burial grounds and waterways. Behind the Bellaire House sits a Native American internment area and the property lies right across of the mighty Ohio River. Adding to the complexities that explains the intensities of the haunted at the property, there's the history that could possibly have opened portals. The original owner of the house, Jacob Heatherington, owned a coal mine that ran directly beneath the property.
Legend has it that when Heatherington's daughter, Eliza, died in the dining room, her brother Edwin became obsessed with trying to reach her beyond the grave. Edwin allegedly summoned mediums to the house and may have unlocked multiple portals to the other side, letting spirits in. Strange voices, footsteps and other unexplained activity are phenomenon that owner, Kristin Lee, and her family were not aware of until they moved into the house in July 2005. Upon moving in, Lee thought she was going crazy, but then she says something happened to her dog. It actually was levitated by an unseen force and slammed up against the wall. That was just the beginning of years of unexplained, almost stirring experiences. The original owner of the house, Jacob Heatherington, owned a coal mine that ran directly beneath the property.
