    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: But, what would be a fitting closing for such a wonderful and exciting place with all of the plantation homes, ghosts, and loads of history? Well, if you were me, you would find a deserted little island surrounded by algae covered water and alligators and frogs and other exotic creatures. You would fix you a nice drink (of your favorite beverage of course), pull up a chair by an angel, and just chill out and contemplate the entire adventure. Speaking of angels. They are everywhere on 'The Myrtles'. In every room, all over the property, everywhere. Why? The owners believed the angels would protect them from ghosts and evil spirits. Here's to evil spirits everywhere :-))

    Favorite thing: The mighty Mississippi River borders the town of St Francisville. How do you cross it at this remote location? Well, by ferry of course. You are deep in the backwoods of Louisiana when you are in St Francisville.

    Favorite thing: On the grounds of 'The Myrtle Plantation'. This property was ranked 13th by Smithsonian for the most haunted in the U.S. A lot of people saw and heard things while we were there. We saw and heard nothing. Of course that is because we are so pure of heart :-)))

    by bdbrewer Written Oct 4, 2002

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Favorite thing: Rosedown's Plantation owner had a daughter that died for lack of medical treatment. He had many other daughters. To insure he would always have medical attention for them, he bought his own doctor and installed on the plantation. This was his office. He also treated slaves, and neighbors. But the owner assured that he would NEVER be without medical treatment for his daughters again...

    Favorite thing: Located off US Highway 61, along the 'River Road' from Memphis, to New Orleans are several now small towns like Natchex, MS. that once were centers for wealthy cotton plantations. Saint Francisville, La. is a collection of beautiful anti-bellum homes, most open to the public. As I travel I like to stop in old towns and see the history that was there.

    Favorite thing: The owner of 'The Myrtles' was shot. He ran up these stairs and died in his wife's arms. His ghost still haunts the grounds, as does his daughter's ghosts whe were poisoned by a slave cook.
