One of the most unique Baton Rouge Area Homes is haunted, or so some say. It dates to 1796 and is in St. Francis-ville, just north of Baton Rouge. It is an antebellum home on the National Registry of Homes, named The Myrtles Plantation.
I visited and stayed the night, but didn't get visited by ghosts as some do. It has 11 bed and breakfast rooms and an elegant restaurant, The carriage house, that serves gourmet meals. Of course the main attraction is the ghost tour at night unless a friendly ghost happens to visit your room during the night. The ghost of "Chloe, harmlessly hangs d sitting on the roof or standing on the veranda. She's quite a shy ghost though and disappears if approached too closely. Chloe was a slave girl and mistress of one of the plantation owners. She was jealous and controlling. Chloe accidently poisoned his children and wife in a scheme to gain the master's good will, but was hanged from one of the trees on the plantation instead. The plantation is supposedly the home of at leat 12 ghosts, making it one of America's Most Haunted Homes. It is reported that 10 murders occurred in the house, but records only indicate the murder of one.
It is a pleasant drive thru beautiful hill country to arrive at St.Francisville. So be sure and stay the night and meet some friendly ghosts.
