When I was trying to find history on the place I saw an old fireplace that someone might have "helped" themselves to. The owner was a man by the last name of Bell no relation to the famous Bell Witch family. He was a Presidential candiate against Lincoln and Stephens though he obviuosly didn't win. He was the last hold out for succeeding from the union. When he finally signed he quit politics for good. Though Stewart County had a major Civil War battle at the fort I was surprised there aren't more haunted areas. It is a great area for fishing, camping, and hunting though.:D

John Bell (you are right ... not the one associated with the Bell witch) was the one that lived in the house while the iron furnace (which is at the edge of the property) was in operation. He had a slave uprising and he hung three of them in the trees in his front yard as a statement. Supposedly (I've not seen them personally) but the marks are still in the walls of the basement of the house that held the hardware where the slaves were chained to the walls. My ex husband's family used to own the land and he has spent many a night in it but stated he never saw anything that would indicate an entity of any kind. BTW ... His wife's maiden name was Wood thus ... Bellwood.:-)

I'm from the area and happen to know that the owner of the property is Ms Anna Ray Keatts who also lives in the area. You are welcome to contact her but I'm telling you up front it isn't likely she will allow anyone to get on the property. She isn't the most cordial individual and more than a bit eccentric. In fact, there used to be signs up around the property stating that trespassers would be shot. To be honest, I believe you would be wasting your time anyway. I grew up there and lived in the area for 40 years. I heard none of the locals say any anything about the house being haunted and have been to the house MANY times in both day and night. My ex's family used to own the property and we farmed the land surrounding it. The first time I heard anything about it being haunted was on the internet a couple of years ago. This info is still not coming from locals. I believe the story behind the house is more dramatic than the house and property itself. You would be best off to visit the Surrender House downtown or even go out to the national cemetery or the battlefield. That's where you will hear the stories from the locals. Just my opinion.

Is there any way that I would be able to contact the owners for a paranormal investigation? I have a group that is extremely interested and would like to set up something.

Good luck with that. Only one owner and she isn't one that is known for her cordial disposition. If I was to guess, I would say your chances are little to none.

When we go to Dover we always go past the house.
Last time when we did that, it does look like someone is picking up around the house and it is starting to look very nice. What a great idea if she would open it up for tours.

Yes it does still exist. The owner has been talking about opening it during the summer for people to see the inside of it. The next time I see her I will ask her is she is still planning on doing it.
