The Myrtles Plantation

The Myrtles Plantation

In this episode, Mark talks with Morgan Moss and Miss Hester Eby about the Myrtles Plantation. The Myrtles Plantation is said to be one of the most haunted homes in America. It has been featured on the Discovery Channel, National Geographic, the Travel Channel and many others.

Listen in as Mark, Morgan, and Miss Eby talk about General Bradford and the Whiskey Rebellion. You’ll also learn about Cloe, the slave girl whose spirit roams the grounds even today. Along the way, you’ll hear about the history of the Myrtles and what an overnight stay at the Myrtles is like!

Morgan and Mark also talk about the many things to do and see in the St. Francisville area, including the Angola State Prison (no, really you want to visit!), Tunica Falls, and more.


For information about a visit or an overnight stay at the Myrtles Plantation, visit their website.

Thank You

Thanks to Morgan Moss and Miss Eby for coming on the podcast. Morgan was also our host as we explored St. Francisville. Our visit would not have been the same without him! I also want to say thanks to Morgan and the Myrtles for inviting my wife and I to spend two nights at the Myrtles.

NOTE: My wife slept fine. I may or may not have been a little scared 🙂
