Belvidere Mansion

Belvidere Mansion, built by John M. Bayless around in 1902, is a gothic-style brick home. Its third floor is a ballroom. In 1907, six months before it was completed, Mr. Bayless died of complications from appendicitis surgery. Mary Bayless and their six surviving children finished the mansion and lived there until 1919. Rogers County Historical Society restored it in 1991, but the John Bayless family is said to still call the place home. Witnesses have heard unexplained noises, seen hazy figures, heard toilets flush by themselves, and felt hot and cold spots and touches.

  1. I would like to go and visit this place but I heard the people who own it will not let anyone in. Probably fear for people being reckless and not going to care of the place during an investigation..

    • There is actually a restaurant on the first floor. You can go in and have a good meal, and if you need to you the bathroom it’s located on the second floor (where all the action is…)

    • You can go in. They actually have a really good restaurant you can eat at located on the first floor. Now if you need to use the bathroom while you are there, that is located on the second floor (that’s where some of the ghost action happens).

    I went there this weekend and caught a evp on a little girl sayin okay. A woman sayin yes you are afarid
    And a man answering a question to my request about a photi in the house

  3. Bible says dead no nothing. What breathe God gives when born goes back to Him. The body is in the ground. Its demons and fallen angels moving in that place really. Thinking it home. Place needs prayer to cast them out.

  4. I went there one time when I was younger and in the upstairs bedroom that belonged to one of the kids there was a rocking chair sitting in the corner off to the side of the door as soon as we walked into the bedroom that rocking chair started rocking. And it was rocking hard as if there was a little kid playing in it. It was crazy it went on for a while. It was ice cold around and for the least very exciting. The whole place feels heavy almost as if you can feel the spirits.

  5. I’ve seen a family standing in the open doorway in front of my room, when I went visited it. I also have seen a person Infront of the house on a ladder like they were still building the house.
