Belle Grove Plantation, built between 1794 and 1797, was once the home of Revolutionary War veteran Major Isaac Hite, Jr. (President James Madison’s brother-in-law) and was the headquarters of General Philip Sheridan during the Battle of Cedar Creek. It is believed to be haunted by an apparition of a woman dressed in a black dress with a veil over her head. She has been seen standing in the window of the topmost room, and is believed to have been a former plantation resident.
