About The Event

Berkeley Plantation's history begins in 1619 when settlers observed the first official Thanksgiving in America. Berkeley’s 1726 Georgian mansion is the birthplace of Benjamin Harrison V, signer of the Declaration of Independence and three times governor of Virginia. The estate is also the birthplace of William Henry Harrison, ninth president of the United States, and ancestral home of his grandson, Benjamin Harrison, the twenty-third president. During the Civil War, Berkeley was occupied by General George McClellan’s Union troops. While at Berkeley, General Daniel Butterfield composed the familiar tune “Taps,” first played by his bugler, O.W. Norton. John Jamieson, a drummer boy with McClellan’s forces, returned to Berkeley in 1907 and purchased the house and 1400 acres. His son, Malcolm, and his wife, Grace, are responsible for the extensive restoration seen today. The plantation is presently owned by the Malcolm E Jamieson family. The mansion is furnished with a magnificent collection of 18th century antiques and artifacts. For more information on Berkeley Plantation's amazing story, visit their website http://www.berkeleyplantation.com. As time pass, so do people....or do they?

Many of the staff at Berkeley Plantation as well as visitors have stated that they have experienced things there that they just cannot explain. Some have said to have heard the voices of children, seen shadow figures, heard footsteps when no one else was around, and have seen apparitions. Also, once during a paranormal event there at the Carriage House, guests witnessed a doorknob rattling before the door opened a few inches when the group leader asked, "make your presence known".

Joining you in investigating the most historic location on the James River will be none other than Flumeri Promotions very own Melody Knapp, Steve Dills, and Daniel Klaes from the television show Ghost Finders! Also assisting you that evening will be Hampton Road's very own local paranormal group RTL PARANORMAL!
