Bellevue - The Longfellow Place

You are here Home  > Historical Buildings >  Bellevue - The Longfellow Place

The home of a former slave trader, Bellevue is reportedly haunted by the ghosts of slaves abused and murdered there. Legend states that the mistress of the house was particularly cruel to the slaves and would often beat them to near death, and more than a few would later succumb to their wounds. The doomed slaves stay on, causing mischief in the form of slamming doors, items being thrown about and other ghostly happenings.

Legend also has it that later, after it had been turned into a hotel, Henry Wadsworth Longfellow rented a room there where he wrote “The Building of the Ship” but there is no evidence to support this and it appears to be nothing more than a clever bit of marketing.

  1. My grandpa used to work on the houses down on this beach. He said after Hurricane George he was down there working and he looked up and there were 3 black folk standing in the window and they appeared to be laughing. But he knows there was no one in the house.

    • I have a sister her use to work there when it was a hotel, and she said she would pull things out in kitchen to set down, turn her back, a D be in its Organa location. She quit and freaked out. I believe it being haunted holds truth. .
