Metro winery featured on ‘Ghost Hunters’ TV show
LIBERTY, Mo. — Folks around the nation were glued to their seats with their eyes fixed on a local winery — one that claims to be haunted.
Belvoir Winery in Liberty was featured on the Sci-Fi show “Ghost Hunters”. The winery held a watch party Wednesday evening.
The building has been everything from an orphanage, to a hotel room, to a winery.
Many feet have walked the halls there, and even though some are no longer living, the winery says those feet still walk the halls.
“There’s a lot of people that know us for the paranormal aspect of the winery and they’re very excited obviously that ‘Ghost Hunters’ came out,” said the winery’s CEO Jesse Leimkuehler.
Folks at Belvior Winery have been all a buzz about the winery’s debut on the show.
During the one hour episode, the nation got a look everyday spooky occurrences that happen there.
“Lots of voices, lots of footsteps. A lot of it occurs during quiet times. Not just in the evening but in the morning, too,”said Leimkuehler
The top floor, where children used to learn when the building was an orphanage, is like a scene out of a horror movie. There are dark and dusty walls, shadow at every corner and birds darting by.
Enthusiasts and skeptics alike enjoy the stories. But even if you don’t believe in ghosts, Leimkuehler says you’ll appreciate the history of the buildings.
There are couple other buildings adjacent to the property’s main building. In all, the property was the site of an orphanage, hotel, senior living and a hospital. Built in 1900, parts of the winery are now under renovation.
