Quickly becoming known as one of the most haunted locations in the United States, Beattie Mansion in St. Joseph, Missouri is a tantalizingly terrifying location! The mysterious haunting has caught the interest of several paranormal investigators, publications and programs. With the amount of evidence that has been gathered by visitors, guests and past caretakers—there is no doubt that Beattie Mansion is a hotbed of paranormal activity!
Armstrong and Eliza Beattie built the mansion in 1854 and lived there until both of their deaths. Armstrong died after contracting cholera in 1878 and was soon followed in death by Eliza in 1880. The two never had children so their home passed into the hands of the Ladies Union Benevolence Association for the use of a “Home for the Friendless,” serving the elderly, homeless and ill of the community. After 100 years of service as the Memorial Home for the Aged, the mansion was used as a group home to house the mentally ill and those who suffered from substance abuse.
As the new owner began renovations, it became abundantly clear that something otherworldly was still lurking in the shadows of Beattie Mansion!
Amazingly clear EVPs (electronic voice phenomena), disembodied voices, singing and laughter, shadow figures, full-bodied apparitions, doors slamming, piano music—the Beattie Mansion is full of mystery and intrigue and a few spirits that are waiting just for you!
Eliza Beattie has been seen the most often on the second floor. Many believe she is guarding the hallway that connects the two wings. Just be careful if you’re a male, Eliza isn’t going to be very fond of you! Armstrong has also been seen and heard pacing the hallways and whistling. The couple who spent so many years in the home are still watching over the estate but they’re not alone!
Children have been seen and heard singing, yelling and laughing. Their eerie childlike voices calling out from beyond the grave will leave a lasting impression on your soul. Although they’ve been captured mostly on the second floor there have also been several shadow figures about the size of a child witnessed in the kitchen area. The same area is known for a tall man that often walks through the kitchen as well.
For the most part, the spirits seem welcoming and eager to communicate with their living guests. But there is a dark male presence in the basement who taunts guests and whose laugh will cause tingles to run up your spine. He’s not alone down there, people have also seen a tall man in overalls and a white shirt staring out the basement window into the parking lot.
People have been poked, grabbed, pushed and scratched. Are the spirits playing rough or just trying to get your attention? The only way you’re going to find out is to come and ask them yourself! Will you be brave enough to face down the dark man in the basement during a lone vigil?
