If we talk about haunted plantations and places, without a doubt the Myrtles plantation, in St. Francisville, Louisiana, is one of the best known in the United States.
The haunted plantation was built in 1796 by David Bradford, known as “Whiskey Dave” for his part in the Pennsylvania Whiskey Rebellion.
The estate was a full slave plantation.
Today, the Myrtles Plantation is a boarding house that claims to have dozens of ghosts and to have been built on top of an Indian cemetery.
Interestingly, there are many visitors who claim to have obtained evidence of ghostly presence that includes a couple who allegedly videotaped ghostly feet of three children walking in front of them.
Ghostly feet of children at The haunted plantation
Brandon and Taryn Hunt had decided to spend a weekend at the Myrtles Plantation.
As the couple arrived, they were greeted by a guest who claimed to have photographed a ghost.
So when the couple decided to record some videos on their own enjoying the weekend at the haunted plantation, they end up discovering an unexpected guest.
The video shows what appears to be not one, but three pairs of feet walking from a staircase to the main hallway of the house before disappearing without a trace.
Two of the ghostly feet appear to have long white socks with black shoes and buckles.
One of the ghosts stops as if looking directly into the camera before its feet turn and walk away.
However, Brandon claims that neither he nor Taryn, saw the feet when filming the room, and they only became aware of the ghostly presence when they reviewed the footage of the haunted plantation, the very next day.
“I just thought it was creepy, weird, crazy, and unexpected, we weren’t expecting to see anything, and then here it was, we saw these feet. We were freaking out when we saw the video. It was totally amazing. We didn’t know what it was or what to expect, or how it could have happened. We were surprised by the situation because we did not see how it happened. We were sitting on the front porch that night, shooting videos and looking at different things. I decided that I would videotape that room and I did, not noticing anything, like a ghost, when I made the video. We were sitting looking at all the photos we took and we looked at the videos again, and I saw those feet walking over there. I was thinking: wait what? I showed it to my wife and said: ‘look at this and tell me what you see’. She looked at it and said, “Oh my God, it’s walking feet.” We didn’t even realize it when we shot the videos.”Brandon told Britain’s Daily Mail newspaper
Brandon shared his video on social media, where it quickly went viral, and while some were convinced it was clear evidence of ghosts, the most skeptical said it was a dog.
But this is not the first time someone has recorded or photographs supernatural presences on the Myrtles plantation.
In fact, there have been many cases over the years.
In 2017, a group of women took a selfie in front of the entrance of the plantation, but what they were waiting for us is to see a ghostly face in the window behind them.
The face is believed to be that of a slave girl named Chloe who normally appears on the plantation.
As we have discussed, the Myrtles plantation is considered one of the most haunted places in the United States.
In the 1800s, Judge Clarke Woodruff lived on the plantation with his wife Sara and their children.
According to the story, a slave named Chloe poisoned Sara, as well as her daughter.
While some people believe that Chloe just wanted to simply make them sick, many others say that she intended to kill them.
The spirits of Sara and her children are said to be trapped in the haunted mirror that still hangs on the wall of the plantation.
In fact, they say that if you take a mirror photograph, you can sometimes see the faces of Sara and her children in the photographs.
Others have seen handprints on the mirror that appear to be coming from inside and pressing out as if trying to escape.
Chloe is often seen wandering the grounds and numerous photographs have been taken of what is believed to be the ghost of the slave.
One particular photo that is well known was taken in 1992 and appears to show an apparition between two of the buildings on the plantation.
Even the National Geographic Explorer team determined that the photograph definitely contained what appeared to be an apparition of what they believe was a slave.
What do you think of the video? Does it show ghostly feet? Or do you have another explanation?
