Plantation Myrtle: Most popular plantation in Louisiana

The infamous plantation myrtle in Louisiana is one of the most popular places in America. Located on 650 acres of land in St. George Frensisvil, staff Lasadina manor was built in 1796 by General David Bradford. The fact that the general, as well as several other future owners did not know that before the land was captured by the Spaniards, it was owned by a local Indian tribe known as the & # 39; Tunics & # 39; These native American peoples used the land as a sacred burial site. How to tell you any ghost hunter or supernatural historian, this type of blasphemy – a breeding ground for supernatural activity, but not usually for this benevolent activity, as spirits of the dead will never rejoice that they violate.

A few years later, one student David Bradford and a family friend, Clark Woodruff married 14-year-old daughter Matilda Sarah Bradford. Woodruff was a regular 35 years, but such arrangements are quite common then. Together in a pair had three daughters: Cornelia Gale, Jane and Mary Octavia. In 1808, after the death of Bradford, Clark and Sarah moved with his family & # 39; it in Myrtle House. As it was in the time when the south kept slaves. Some worked in the fields, while others were household servants. One of these domestic servants was a young woman named Chloe. Chloe was particularly closely linked to the family & # 39; it, as she did the cooking and personally took care of the daughters of Woodruff. It is believed that she and Clark were novel. Knew that Sarah Wood unknown.

Now Chloe, which was such a perapletsenne Woodruff, had the opportunity to hear some of the moves on the estate. In most cases, she wanted to eavesdrop, to find out what happens to slaves. Things like, if the ownership came new slaves or slaves were sold or traded to another owner. But lately, Chloe is listening to know that it will happen. You see, with the lateness of the hour, she began to suspect that Mr. Clark was tired of it. She realized that he would send it to the field, rather than to take a chance to tell her something Sarah Woodruff about their rapid attempts. However, once I caught Chloe. Her punishment was cruel. For crimes eavesdropping, cut one's ears.

Fearing that now it is sent to the field, Chloe made a plan to preserve its current status. She gathered a few leaves from the oleander plant and boil them in water. This would create a mouse & # 39; like, similar to a liquid, which it had planned to pour the dough for a celebratory cake, which she did for one of the children. It is widely believed that its intention was not to kill, but simply to get girls and their mother ill, so that she could raise them. This would make her something & # 39; nd grateful, and it could be something personal servants & # 39; and. But Chloe's plan terribly wrong. She underestimated the power of the poisonous mixture and after a couple of hours after eating the cake two girls and Sarah died. Chloe confessed what she had done. Then, as revenge for the two little girls, an angry crowd of both black and white men and women took it and hung it on a tree on the spot. Woodruff stayed until 1834, then he sold the property and moved to New Orleans. He died in 1851.

These days Plantation Myrtle has been restored and now functions as a bed and breakfast. Many guests say the house who have seen ghosts and heard the sounds, such as traces. Ghost were identified as Woodruff's daughter, Cornelia Gail and Jane and their mother Sarah Matilda and domestic servants, Chloe has also been noticed. Girls seen as playing at home (usually at the top) and on the court. The ghost of Sarah Matilda is seen mostly on the main staircase, going down on it, as if welcoming the guests when they arrive. Chloe is often seen as she wanders through the countryside, and it saw the tree on which it was posted.
