Event Details

The historical Odd Fellows Home District in Liberty, MO is home to a sprawling set of buildings that once served and housed the orphaned, indigent, and elderly.  While the former orphanage has been transformed into what is now the Belvoir Winery and Inn, the remaining buildings still await their fate. The passage of time has taken its toll on these old haunted halls, all of which you will have the rare privilege to roam when you join us for this two day event.

Join us as we assemble paranormal researchers and members of some of the most popular paranormal shows on television for a two day special event this March. Taste local wines, enjoy a Haunted in Havana party, listen to panels and lectures, then actually investigate the Belvoir Winery and surrounding buildings yourself.
