Paranormal Investigation

Did you know that the plantation is haunted? Many visitors and employees have experienced something unusual on the property. Recently in March, the grounds, North Cabin, and Main House were investigated by the Portsmouth Paranormal Society, the Full Moon Paranormal, and Coastal Virginia Paranormal. They kindly created this video of their results and findings! Enjoy the video here.
