Bellaire OH is home to one of the most haunted places in the state, Bellaire House. Come explore its mystery with Haunted Journeys.
Jacob Heatherington constructed the Bellaire House in 1904. It is built over a ley-line and sits on top of Coal Mine #1, which was owned by Jacob. Haunted properties are thought to be affected by burial grounds and waterways. Behind the Bellaire House sits a Native American burial cave and the property lies right across the mighty Ohio River.
When Jacob died, he left the coal mine to his granddaughter, Lyde. She died in the dining room of The Bellaire House. Her brother Edwin grieved the loss of his sister so much that he hired mediums from all over the USA to connect with her. He became so fascinated with the afterlife he began studying seers and the art of mediumship.
There are two spirits, both named Emily Davis. One used to play at the Bellaire House when she was a child. The second Emily Davis was much older than the child. One Emily Davis was know to have drown, and another Emily Davis was known as a close friend to the original owner of the land.
Strange voices, footsteps and other unexplained activity are phenomena that the owner and her family were not aware of until they moved into the house in 2005.
Bellaire House has been featured on TLC's "Paranormal Lockdown" and hosts many paranormal investigation teams and documentary groups of the haunted. Today it operates as an ongoing paranormal research center, opening its doors for stay overs, investigations and special events.
