Upcoming investigations

I have a trip planned on Monday to revisit two of the local homes in my area that are reported to be haunted. The first of these is Endview Plantation.

I stopped in here last summer but did not get any impressions of anything out of the ordinary. However I only visited the house and small cemetary that is on the property. Since then I have learned the following information and will be taking a walk back to that side if the property.

Civil War re-enactors who would stay in the cabins near Endview Plantation in Newport News would report ghostly happenings. Doors open and close on their own, cold spots appear even in the summer, and many of them felt a presence when they were alone and heard disembodied voices.

The second home on my list is Lee Hall Mansion.

During my first visit there, I asked if there were any ghost stories. I was told there was one of a woman, but they didn't seem to want to talk about the story.
I do know of one person who lived in the town homes that have been built on the adjoining land next to the mansion (this all belonged to the family at one time) and she told me strange mist has been seen on the grounds of the mansion, and also she along with others have reported strange things happening in there apartment/townhome.
It should be interesting to see if my visit next week shows me anything "strange"

My family and I used to live in the apartments next to the Lee Hall Mansion. While my son was being potty trained he refused to use the restroom at night even if his father or I would go in with him. He would yell and scream and say that there was a man in there and that he would be very angry. We asked him to describe what this "man" looked like and my son was very detailed all of the way to the type of hat and the color of his hair. When he finished explaining this mans appearance to us we realized he had described a civil war soldier. My husband and I were discussing it one night and he said it was bull, and the next thing we knew the glass on our entertainment center blew out, almost as if someone had shot it. We knew that wasnt possible just for the simple fact that we were on the second floor. If you have any questions regarding any of this please contact us.

I also lived at Chelsea at Lee hall
and had a few things happen. The first night after moving in I came down to the 1st floor to put up some boxes, I had no curtains up at the back door, it was dark so I walked over to turn on the light when I looked out the door I saw what looked like a black mass shaped like a man, it really scared me, I ran over to look out the back door and turn on the back light, but no one was there.
