This is my second story about my stay at The Myrtles Plantation. The first one included pictures of what I thought was a face. The first few comments on my page agreed they see a face but think it might be nothing more then wanting to see something there. I have to agree that is probably the case, but it is still the first picture I show people when I talk about my trip. I will include some other pictures with Orb's in them with this one.
I want to tell you a little about the house in case anyone plans on going there. It is not one of the biggest or best kept places in Louisiana to see. The grounds outside are beautiful, but the house itself is old and once inside you can see that. It does make the whole haunting thing seem a bit more authentic but for a bed in breakfast, don't expect a 5 start hotel treatment. There are no TV's, radio's, computers, internet connections, or anything electronic in the house. It also has poor lighting in every room. The atmosphere is set up to scare people. We could hear everything inside and outside of the house from our room. For instance there was a noise we kept hearing in our room upstairs and we could not tell where it was coming from. Well, before we left we realize that anytime someone shut a door we could hear the chandelier rattle.
I have also learned that most of the stories they tell on the Ghost Tour can not be confirmed to be true. It doesn't mean they are completely made up or that they place is not haunted, just that the origin of the hauntings may not be accurate.
It is said that the house may be over an Indian burial site. That might be what started this off to begin with. There have been sighting of a little Indian girl around the house. There have been many deaths either by poison, diseases, and even murder on the property. There have even been sightings of civil was soldiers.
I would love to go stay there again, once on the grounds its almost like you have stepped back in time.
I hope you have enjoyed the pictures.
