My friend used to live next to Chesterfield Manor, it was an old house and clock shop, since torn down. But without a doubt, that place was haunted. I don’t know if it was just her house, or if it was remnants of Chesterfield Manor, or the pastures and farm grounds surrounding…who knows with places so old? But on several different occassions there were heavy footsteps that circled her house. During a sleepover one of my friends flipped out after supposedly seeing an old man staring in at her through the window. Perhaps the creepiest aspect of all of this was how blase my friends who lived there were, claiming that stuff happened all the time and they’d lived there their whole lives, so it was no big deal. They said they too had seen and heard things, but none of the spirit seemed dangerous, so why make it an issue?

Is there anything such as newspaper articles to back up the claim of this “cult house” in Waverly? I would think something would have been written up other than hearsay on this matter. I have a hard time believing that the home owners are fine with two guys watching the place with guns that were hired by the cult that used to live and do God knows what else there. Just doesn’t sound right.

I am from the Lexington/Dover area and lived there until 1991. I am very familiar with the house near Waverly with the gold dome and it has a long history of weird stuff going on. The name of the cult that was there in the late 1980′s was “The Kansas City Chapter of the Age of Enlightenment” and it was still there in 1990. There were stories of another cult before that, but I have no idea if it was known by any formal name or not.

The tales of strange happenings go back years and years and include everything from devil worship to religious cults to paranormal activity. The dome is obvious from the highway during the day, but hopefully, everyone will leave the new owners alone.

Hey…I live in Wavery and the Mansion you speak of is called the Dover Mansion…In Dover…It is NOT haunted…And the couple who lives there are very exclusive and private people…The aren’t cult leaders they are very friendly, nice, and old…They don’t like it when kids go out there so if you are loud they might shoot into the air…A few of my friends have gone out there on four wheelers obviously making a lot of noise and they shot into the air to get them to go away…Sorry for the let down…But if you would like to know of a haunted house near Carrollton there is this one I went to a while back that kinda freaked me out…And believe me I’m the first person to say a place ISN’T haunted…But at this place when me and my friends were upstairs I heard rustling downstairs like someone else was in the house…I was the closest to the stairwell and as I turned my ear to hear down the stairs I heard a female child cry out softly “Ahh” or “Help” I couldn’t quite make it out…I thought it was strange also that like almost the whole house was clean except the stairwell which was covered in cat feces…That’s why I recommend you wear shoes lol…Anyway if you would like to know more my email is…I’ll tell you the location and what you need to do to ensure yourself safe hunting…bye!

Okay, I was told about Chesterfield Manor by a friend of mine, so I decided to check it out with a group of friends at around three in the morning last night. We pulled into a road nearby to try and get in and a cop IMMEDIATELY pulled us over, so be careful if you decide to go. We had to park somewhere else and walk there.

My phone was on the fritz already, turning off and on and beeping, but the second we went inside it went completely blank and silent and didn’t do anything else until we left. There’s a broken door that we had to crawl in through to get in. I think there’s also a broken window somewhere. If you decide to use the door, WEAR LONG SLEEVES AND PANTS, because there’s glass on the floor and I cut myself.

The inside is a complete mess. All the beds, chairs, washers, dryers, fridges, and medical equipment are still there. Don’t go in the deep freezer because you’ll get locked inside. Also, when you go down to the basement be aware that the door to the basement is closeable, and THERE IS A LOCK ON IT. So don’t go playing hide and seek in there…

In the basement some old lady supposedly used to live in one of the rooms after it was closed down; that particular room has a decently nice bathroom too, which is weird. The right corner ceiling of that room is falling in, and be careful with your flashlights WHICH YOU WILL NEED because light gets out through that room.

Watch out for water in the basement, it’s kind of everywhere so don’t wear flip flops like I did. Worst idea ever. I’m just glad I didn’t cut my feet because it would’ve gotten infected. There’s also two rooms in the basement where a fire must’ve started because they’re torched pretty badly; whether or not it was while the place was open is beyond me.

Back upstairs, the main room’s a mess but luckily there’s some kinda weird squishy material – kinda looked like the stuff you pull out of a couch cushion – covering the floor. So no need to worry about glass too much as long as you’re wearing shoes and don’t sit down. The fireplace is really nice, and when we went there was a burned book there. My best friend made a joke about it being the new Harry Potter book, but who would burn THAT?!

Down one of the halls – and there are MANY – there are three recent pictures duct taped to the wall of a girl covered in blood holding a telephone. The “inscription” says : Hello? *ring* It’s for you.

By the way, if you crawl in under the door, you have to squeeze past the fridge and stay to the right. So, if you’re, er, a little heavier, be aware that it’s a tight fit… But with a few people you can move it out of the way.

When you’re walking up to the manor, BE QUIET, because the subdivisions nearby can hear you and they will call the police. And don’t turn on your flashlights until you’re inside, because they’ll be able to see you. You’re pretty much safe once you’re inside, except for the room I mentioned above and a broken window in the main room (the one with all the pornographic graffiti!) because everything is boarded up.

Just to warn you, don’t go by yourself. Don’t EVER go by yourself. Pay attention to where you’re going because it’s kind of easy to get lost. You CAN get locked inside the basement if someone feels like screwing with you, so only go with people you trust. There are rumors of people doing drugs in there as well as having parties, so you never know if there are other people there. Always make sure to let someone know where you’re going in case you don’t come back. That place is freaking creepy. We didn’t experience anything supernatural, but my friends were goofing off and trying to scare us the whole time, so we don’t know what was them and what was something else…

For the CORRECT location of the Carrollton house, if you are heading west from the square, go past the fair grounds on the left (reserve armory). I believe the highway is D… as the road curves to the right, there is a road that comes from the highway (heading south) if you take a right on the first road (can’t remember if it’s gravel or not) This angels and chains house is supposed to be the first two story house on the south side of the road. In 2005- 2006, the house was being renovated and was empty when my friend and I went to the house. Couldn’t get inside, doors were locked.

Chesterfield Manor was closed in the ’90s, not the ’70s… apparently due to sanitary reasons and lack of care for the elders? I went there for the first time last night. I’m not sure how closely the police keep watch of it anymore because I was with a pretty big, loud group and had no problems. We even walked through the field between the Manor and the Lawn Care store with flashlights on. Maybe I’m too skeptical because I wasn’t that scared and didn’t see anything that interesting. The place creaked a little, but that’s nothing out of the ordinary since it’s a big, old building and a couple of the rooms in the basement were probably around 35 degrees. Honestly, the part that freaked me out the most was that a bunch of kids left their Wigi Board in the middle of the dining room.

All I have to say is don’t go there in flip flops, lol. The tops of my feet got kind of cut up from all the broken glass. Oh, and go in the door around the back of the building that’s boarded up. There’s about a 3 foot hole in it that anyone could easily crawl through. And about what Rian said… I think someone moved the fridge a little because there’s a pretty big gap between it and the wall now.

I have had many experiences with this building. This building was infact shut down 1997 by the goverment. Before it was a retirement home it was an insane asylum. a month ago we first entered just for the thrill. It was a dark rainy day… All 3 of us had no bad feeling about this. We walked around unharmed, as we entered the basement there was a deep dark heavy presence… we fled the building asap. A few days after while i was in detention, the 2 friends that were with me and another one of my friends decided to explore the basement during the day. they saw a dead dog that had seemed to be decaying in the basment. this sickened them and they ran upstairs. One of the girls decided to be “brave” and steal a wiji bored that was placed in the middle of a circle of chairs in what had seemed to be the family room. That night this girl saw faces heard noises and was freaked. The next day was a friday so we decided to return it. it was a group of 8 and we decided we would find strength in numbers. i offered to hold the boared. as we walked around the building and arrived at the door we heard a dog crying inside the building. we didnt know it it was real or if something was ******* with us. I realized that what ever it was was pissed and i needed to returm the boared. i entered the building alone. quickly i felt the heavyness, and spiritual wickedness of this abandon building. i ran too the room and set the boared down. when i set it down i heard the rumbling noise almost like an earthquick i ran out as i left i heard a scream . we went to the very front spooked and confused and heard voises that we couldnt quit tune in and place. we left the area. weeks went on and curiosity built up. i wanted to know more. finaly i asked the orgianal 3 if they woulf explore a little more with me. we got off school and drove over. we really didnt have any bad feelings. we walked in and the feeling stayed the same. we entered this office and looked thro papers. the papers were filled with employee info. we picked up them and once again got spoked and left. we were at the door and we felt as if something was chasing us we ran to the front. still unsatisfied. still confused. i saw a courtyard type area in the distance and walked over. we were still frightenred but my friend got up the courage to ask a question. he said “are there spirits in here, knock once for yes twice for no” the reply was a frightening single knock. “do you guys feel unconterable with us being here?” the reply was a faint and unsure double knock. we stood there confused and then there was a loud double knock. we ran back to the car. we were still confused so we called up a girl named kara on the employee list. she told us that for the short amount of time that she worked there, there was a horrible stress. this was the folks home and life and it was being takin away with no place toi live. they were abandon and alon and many died.

and thats my story that very well may continue

[really sorry about the horrible spelluing]

I live pretty close to ‘the Dover Mansion’, as the Concordia, MO people call it, and I’ve been there several times. We never thought it was haunted, but we did hear about the cult, The Age of Enlightenment. I went there last fall to paint it, and it’s really in kind of crappy condition now. I just can’t believe the people who own it would let it get that way…then again if you don’t have the money to fix it up, what do you do? I tried to look for pics online and couldn’t find any. Nobody around this area thinks it’s haunted, not of my generation anyway, but everyone thinks it’s really mysterious because of the whole cult thing.

I went to the Dover Mansion today at around 4:30. Me and two friend drove up to the house and knocked. I maybe waited 5 minutes for an answer. As I waited nothing happend so I took a few pictures of the house. The house needs a good paint job and some cleaning. The house looked really dirty inside and half the windows were too dirty to look threw. So we decided to try to make our way to the back of the house but bottumed out the car so we just parked on the long gravel road and chilled for about 30 minutes.

So if you wanna see some pictures add me on myspace and send me a msg.

I am commenting regarding the Dome in Dover Missouri,
This is not haunted. This is just a place where cults use to be at. There are still cults in WAVERLY MISSOURI today. I happen to know this because most of the teenagers there are part of it. If you want to check something creepy out you go to that town. There are supposed Vampires in Waverly as well which I wouldnt doubt.

Me and two of my friends went to the “Dover Mansion” a few days ago, when we got there we drove around the circle driveway to the front of the place, i walked up to the door and knocked, at first there was no answer so i was going to leave but when i turned around an old man opened the door and asked if i needed something. I asked him if he would show us the inside of the mansion, he was nice about it but said no.
