The Myrtles Plantation St. Francisville, Louisiana https://www.myrtlesplantation.com/ It's hard to hear the words haunted plantation and not think of Myrtles. The sheer amount of eyewitness accounts of paranormal doings—as well as its numerous appearances on television shows—has made this spot a veritable pilgrimage for anyone interested in ghost hunting. But this location has so much more to offer than just a collection of spooky stories, starting with the history. While the home has been built upon a few times over the centuries, the original portion of the house dates back to 1796. It was made for General "Whiskey Dave" Bradford who was on the lam for taking part in the ...

The Bell Witch Phenomenon, possibly the most famous American haunting, dates back to around 1820 in sleepy Adams, Tennessee. The spirit that haunted the John Bell family became more infamous than probably any entity, ever. Hundreds of visitors from across the young United States, and even from as far away as Europe, witnessed and heard the spirit's eerie and destructive shenanigans. The Bell Witch was some sort of disembodied spirit. "Kate" (as it was called) kept the Bell family up all night, almost every night, for three years, with pounding and scratching on the floors and walls, poltergeist activity teleporting physical objects around the house and neighborhood, and—most ...
