  1. At Bentonville, paranormal investigations are looked down upon. If you are caught doing any “ghost hunting”(even in the daytime hours) you will be told to get off the property. If you go at night you will be trespassed and can go to jail. Just a warning to any paranormal teams thinking about going there and investigating out in the open.

    • Hi,
      I think, honestly, the reason it isn’t allowed, is fear of vandalism etc. during night time hours. Kind of a “just avoid the attention” type thing more than it being looked down on. Keep in mind, too……it’s govt property so the staff don’t make the rules…..someone in Raleigh does!

  2. I have been to the Bentonville Battlefield about 3 times in my life.I live in Four Oaks and have all my life.The Harper house and Battle ground is a long way from me.I went there one time as a baby with my parents,I don’t remember that.The second time I was grown and married and went with my kids and husband and brother.And went another time some years later.Each time I went there I walked through the house and museum.I never actually went into the battle field.As I stood in the hall of the house listening to the tour guide telling about how the Doctor amputated the Soldiers arms and legs and threw them out the window,I was feeling the presents of the soldiers every where.In my head some how i was seeing men in uniforms standing around and looking at the people and the tour guide and at me!It did not scare me though I have always loved Ghost people.i walked all through the house and when I got up the stairs i could feel the presents of a little child but that was only lightly felt.As i went into the other bed room I felt Children so strong i knew that I should be seeing them but didn’t.We then went out side and walked down the side walk and to the pick nick tables to eat and as I sat there I felt the strong presents of men that I could not see and they were all around and were looking at me.I felt as though these Soldier wanted to talk to me.
