Kenmore Plantation - Real Fredericksburg Haunt
Built in the 1770s, this historic home is the only surviving building of the Kenmore Plantation. It was owned by the family of Betty Washington Lewis, George Washington’s younger sister. Rumor has it that Betty’s husband, Colonel Fielding Lewis, has haunted the house since his death in the 1780s. Lewis, who is said to have spent many hours in the upstairs bedroom worrying about money, can still be seen in his Revolutionary-era clothing poring over financial documents in the room; he has also been known to turn doorknobs and his footsteps and sometimes be heard as well. The historic plantation house is now kept as a museum and can be toured almost every day.
