Paranormal Stories & Stuff  FOR FUN


The paranormal has always intrigued me.  When I was a child my family found it odd when I would carry on conversations with things they could not see in a language they could not understand.  As I got older I learned to hide that side of me, but the mysterious places have always had a hold on me.

Over the years I have managed to visit a few of these places on my bucket list, Waverly Hills in Kentucky, Hinsdale House in NY and Salem MA.  I was supposed to head to NO in 2020, but fucking COVID...

What I am proposing is for everyone to add a mysterious place that they want to visit.  Submit a pic, a little history and why they want to visit. 

Just a little something to get away from all the crap floating around....

Here is one place that has been on my bucket list for decades:

The Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, LA.

I saw this on a haunted places program when I was a teen.  The thing that caught my attention and has stayed with me all these years was a picture that was taken that showed a figure standing between two buildings.  The figure appeared to be transparent and the picture taker said no one was standing there when they took the pic.  See photo below:

It is now a B&B and one of these days I am going to rent one of the cabins and hopefully enjoy some frights.

A little hisotry:

Whiskey Dave

The drama of The Myrtles Plantation began in 1796 when General David Bradford, also known as "Whiskey Dave" of the Whiskey Rebellion, fled the United States to avoid arrest and imprisonment. Bradford arrived at Bayou Sara, then a Spanish Colony, and obtained a land grant of 650 acres from the Baron de Corondelet to begin a new life. In 1820 The Myrtles was sold to his son-in-law, Judge Clarke Woodruff, who remodeled the mansion.

Let's take a walk on the unnerving side.  Away from anger, spitefulness and stupidity and towards the dark side.  The scary side.....

If one of my children was having conversations with things others couldn't see in a language others could not understand I would have taken them to a child psychiatrist.

I had an opportunity to visit the most haunted hotel in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, but chickened out.

You told me about that place and said you would meet me there when my sister and I get down that way.

Yes. I just can't remember off the top of my head what it's called.

I didn't really chicken out. We had been drinking and walking around Eureka all day and I was tired. But I do want to do it someday

Well I will contact you when my sis & I get into that area.  I have discussed it with her & she is all in.  She is my "ghost hunting" partner.

Give me a week's notice so I can make a hotel reservation. I think we also need to make reservations for the tour

It's the Crescent Hotel built in the late 1800's.

Thank-you. I knew the name but just couldn't get it in my head. At least I didn't call it the Moon hotel. The other day I was trying to think of the name of goldfinches and yellow jackets came out of my mouth

They say this is the most haunted house in our state.

I have never been to it. Supposedly it is quite famous.

I have never seen that place, but it looks beautiful.  It is going on my bucket list.  Thanks.

The funny thing is, it doesn't look scary at all. The house itself almost looks cheerful.

I was thinking that when I was going through the pictures.  But it still looks like a great place to visit & get some history.  My sister (who I do my traveling with) is a big history buff so we do a lot of research on places before we visit.  I really think she would love this place.  A lot of history there.
