The Myrtles Plantation Home - USA's Most Haunted House
Built in 1796, Myrtles Plantation is pure antebellum splendour. Located in St. Francisville, Louisiana this National Historic Register plantation home is renowned for its mystery, history and intrigue. Surrounded by centuries-old live oak trees, the mansion’s highlights include the gloriously long veranda, ornamental ironwork, hand-painted stained glass, Baccarat crystal chandelier and GHOSTS. At first glimpse, the mansion surrounding environment offers a complete sense of peace and tranquility….however…..
Handprints on the mirrors, footsteps on the stairs, mysterious smells, vanishing objects, death by poison, hangings, murder and gunfire - the Myrtles Plantation holds the rather dubious record of hosting more ghostly phenomena than just about any other house in America.
There have been many reports of children seen playing on the wide veranda of the house, in the hallways and in the rooms. A young girl, with long curly hair wearing an ankle-length dress, has been seen floating outside the windows trying to peer inside the glass.
The grand piano on the first floor plays by itself, usually repeating the same chord over and over again. Sometimes it continues through the night. When someone comes into the room to check on the sound, the music stops and will only start again when they leave.
North of New Orleans by two hours and 40 minutes from Baton Rouge, a visit to Myrtles Plantation is worth the trip. Take a guided history or mystery tour followed by lunch or dinner. Visit on Sunday and enjoy a scrumptious brunch. OR, for the full Myrtle Plantation experience, stay the night!
