In light of the spirit of the last few posts, I have to decided to chronicle some of the hottest, most haunted vacation spots located all around the world, for those holiday makers with a more adventurous, macabre bent.
First off, we have St. Francisville, Louisiana, which is hope of the Myrtles Plantation.
It is absolutely steeped in haunted romanticism, evocative of the old South, which is filled with many ghosts.
The plantation in particular houses many of them, such as General David Bradford, also known as “Whiskey Dave.” In building his home, he did so right atop a burial ground for the Tunica Indians.
A follow up involves what may be one of the earliest recordings of Munchausen’s-by-proxy: a slave girl paid back her owner for cutting off her ear by baking a birthday cake laced with oleander for one of his daughters.
In a state where ghosts and hauntings run rampant, the Myrtles Plantation is one of the richest examples.
