Paranormal Confessions: True Stories of Hauntings, Possession, and Horror from the Bellaire House
Built in 1847 on the banks of the Ohio River, the Bellaire House is reputed to be one of the most haunted houses in America. Since the early twentieth century it has earned a reputation as a hotbed of paranormal activity, with reports of apparitions, curses, psychic assaults, and violence.
This is a collection of true ghost stories from the owner of the Bellaire House and the proprietor of the Bellaire House Afterlife Research Center. It is a mix of lurid and heartwarming stories that both entertain and convey to the reader what the dead want us to know. Stories include accounts of a ghostly sexual assault, communications from spirits of slaves (the house was part of the Underground Railroad) and French and Native American ghosts from the eighteenth-century battlefield, and tales of madness.
From the Publisher
Bellaire House, located at the ordinary-sounding address of 1699 Belmont Street, was built by a man named Jacob Heatherington in 1847. It sits on top of both a ley line and an abandoned coal mine, close to sacred Shawnee burial caves and beneath a powerful planetary alignment. The house’s location has thus always been a swirling cosmic whirlpool of immense spiritual power and paranormal activity. The tragic Heatherington family history—at least one family member died in the house—has only added to this mystique. When grief drove another family member to conduct countless séances and occult rituals there, eleven otherworldly portals were opened within the walls of the house. These portals can leech energy from the living, amplify demonic intent, and even cause dimensional slips in time. To this day, these portals remain open, beckoning forces both living and dead into the house.

Edwin Heatherington’s Room
He started studying the occult in an attempt to strengthen his own psychic abilities and make contact with his sister. He brought in occult experts and psychics from all over the country to help him in his cause. It’s impossible for us to know now how many of these mediums and seers were authentic, but it’s likely that some were charlatans who took advantage of Edwin’s grief and his longing to connect with Lyde.
Many paranormal researchers who have investigated Bellaire House believe that Edwin unknowingly opened portals to the Other Side all over the house. According to our investigations, as many as eleven of these portals still exist in the house to this day. Despite attempts by paranormal investigators, psychic practitioners, and religious leaders to close them, the portals remain stubbornly open. One theory as to why is that Edwin was so depressed and distraught that he became oppressed and then possessed by the entities with whom he had made contact.
