6 Chairs Push People Out of Them and Make People Feel Sick
Newport, Rhode Island is one of the oldest towns in the United States. Settled in 1690, by the early twentieth century the seaport town had become a hot summer destination for some of America’s wealthiest families. The mansions of Newport are legendary, as are the many ghost stories that accompany buildings that have been around for so long.
Belcourt Castle was founded by Oliver Hazard Perry Belmont, a wealthy American socialite and politician, in 1894. There are many different documented hauntings within this lavish home, but perhaps the most famous haunted objects in the castle are two chairs that reportedly have spirits attached to them. Visitors who sit in the chairs say they immediately feel cold, queasy, and uncomfortable. Their hands feel like they’re pricked by static electricity when held near the chairs, and many people have claimed that they’ve felt like they’re sitting on someone when they attempt to sit in the chairs. Several visitors have actually been ejected from the chairs by an unseen force.
