Avenel Porch - Bedford - Virginia
Photograph - Photography
Avenel was built between 1836-1838 and was the focal point of a 200-acre plantation owned by William and Frances Burwell. Avenel is a two-story brick house that was built on a small hill that once overlooked the town of Liberty, (present day Bedford, Virginia.). Historic Avenel has served as the centerpiece in the social, cultural and political life of Bedford for over 150 years. It has played host to many distinguished visitors including General Robert E. Lee (the table from which he drank his morning coffee still stands in the house), and Edgar Allan Poe.
Avenel is listed in U.S. National Register of Historic Places.
Avenel House is lauded as one of the most actively haunted places in central & southwest Virginia. Many paranormal research groups have gone in before and always with reports of unexplained activity. A few of the consistent reports include an apparition of the Lady in White that walks the grounds and sometimes Avenel Avenue.
