Come along with Spirited History as you explore and uncover the many haunting tales that surround Bacon’s Castle during its 350th anniversary.

During the event, participants will be investigating right along with seasoned Spirited History investigators utilizing information documenting Bacon’s Rebellion, several Hankins family letters and poetry, period music, and much more in order to trigger a paranormal response from the many spirits that may still linger at this historic location.

In addition, participants will be participating in EVP sessions, a ghost box session, dowsing sessions, the use of a Mel-Meter, the use of a K-2 meter and EMF detector.

Supernatural accounts reported over the years includes a mysterious fireball that is said to appear, circle the cemetery, go into the house down one of the chimneys. Also, people have reported being touched by ghostly hands. Full body apparitions have been seen inside the house and on the grounds. The teleportation of objects has been reported as well as phantom voices being heard when the site is closed, these are just a few of the supernatural accounts that have been documented at this incredibly historic location.

During the event, Spirited History will be sharing the paranormal activity their investigative group has documented at Bacon’s Castle which includes: EVPs, personal supernatural encounters, ghost box responses, dowsing responses, and equipment responses, and eerie photo anomalies.

A Little History
Built in 1665, the house was home to a prosperous planter, Arthur Allen. The house passed to Major Arthur Allen at his father’s death. A supporter of the colonial governor and member of the House of Burgesses, Allen was driven from his house in 1676 when Nathaniel Bacon and men staged what came to be known as Bacon’s Rebellion.

The house had many owners throughout the eighteenth century. John Henry Hankins purchased the Castle in 1844 and later built a Greek Revival addition. This was the home to the Hankins family during the Civil War and was visited by well known poet Sidney Lanier.

Later in 1880, Charles Warren purchased the house. His grandson, Walker Pegram Warren lived in the house until his death in 1972. Through a purchase agreement, the APVA bought the house and began a research and restoration effort. The APVA opened Bacon’s Castle in 1983 to the public.

This is a rare opportunity to have access to this location for a paranormal investigation. Get your tickets early as they are only a limited number available.

Be sure to bring your flashlights, cameras and recorders.  Please wear soft soled shoes.

The Djinn are a little-known race of beings who live in a parallel dimension and have great supernatural powers  and a keen interest in human beings that at times may be not so friendly.

Learn about the origins of Djinn, their characteristics, and how to recognize and respond to them.

Rosemary Ellen Guiley is a leading expert on the paranormal. She is the author of more than 50 books and hundreds of articles on a wide variety of topics, including “The Vengeful Djinn: Unmasking the Hidden Agenda of Genies”, and” The Encyclopedia of Demons & Demonology”.
