"THESE REAL GHOST JUST LOVE TO HAVE THERE PHOTOS TAKEN"
BY RICHARD PERKINS
There are often some locations in the world where particualr ghosts it seems delight in having there photos taken. More ghost photos and strange occurences seem to happen where ghost love to perform for visitors. Many in the paranomal community are discussing thr fact that those ghosts want to be see. They might actually enjoy the notirity and being in the spotlight.
Many ghost are thought to be friendly. they do not bother people who are aware of them and their hauntings. It seems the ghost of the Mytles have grown to love allowing themselves to be seen and documentend.
The Mytles ghost Photos below were sent to us and asked to discern if the individuals have captured real evidence of ghostly goings on. And in my oppinion if it counts for aything, I really think they did. though others might tend to disagree.
The Myrtles Plantation is an antebellum plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana, near Baton Rouge. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the plantation is a bed and breakfast, and it offers historical and mystery tours.
Touted as "one of America's most haunted homes",the plantation is supposedly home of at least 12 ghosts.It is often reported that 10 murders occurred in the house, but historical records only indicate the murder of William Winter.In 2001 or 2002, Unsolved Mysteries filmed one of the segments for the show. According to Robert Stack, the production crew experienced technical difficulties during the production of the segment.
The legend of Chloe
Possibly the most well known of the Myrtles supposed ghosts, Chloe was reportedly a slave owned by Clark and Sara Woodruff. According to one story, Clark Woodruff had pressured or forced Chloe into being his mistress Other versions of the legend have Chloe listening in at keyholes to learn news of Clark Woodruff's business dealings or for other purposes. After being caught, either by Clark or Sara Woodruff, one of her ears was cut off, and she wore a green turban to hide it.
Chloe supposedly baked a birthday cake containing extract of boiled and reduced oleander leaves, which are extremely poisonous. The various legends diverge as to why she did this, with some saying she was getting revenge on the Woodruffs and some saying she was attempting to redeem her position by curing the family of the poisoning. According to the legends, her plan backfired. Only Sara and her two daughters ate the cake, and all died from the poison. Chloe was then supposedly hanged by the other slaves, either as punishment or to escape punishment by Clark Woodruff for harboring her.
The historical record does not support this legend. There is no record of the Woodruffs owning a slave named Chloe,Cleo or any slaves. The legends usually claim that Sara and her two daughters were poisoned, but Mary Octavia survived well into adulthood. Finally, Sara, James, and Cornelia Woodruff were not killed by poisoning, but instead succumbed to yellow fever.Regardless of the factual accuracy of the Chloe story, some believe a woman wearing a green turban haunts the plantation.
Reportedly haunted mirror within Myrtles Plantation
There are a variety of other legends surrounding the Myrtles. The house is reputedly built over an Indian burial ground, and the ghost of a young Indian woman has been reported. During the Civil War, the house was ransacked by Union soldiers, and legend claims that three were killed in the house. Supposedly, there is (or was) a blood stain in a doorway, roughly the size of a human body, that will not (or would not) come clean. Other legends say that cleaners have been unable to push their mop or broom into that space. However, there are no records of any Union soldiers having been shot on the Myrtles property.
A mirror located in the house supposedly holds the spirits of Sara Woodruff and two of her children. According to custom, mirrors are covered after a death, but legend says that after the poisoning of the Woodruffs, this particular mirror was overlooked. The uncovered mirror reportedly trapped the spirits of Sara and her children, who are occasionally seen or leave handprints in the mirror. These handprints may have been left by workers replacing the glass or resilvering the mirror.
The plantation is also reportedly haunted by a young girl who died in 1868, despite being treated by a local voodoo practitioner. She supposedly appears in the room in which she died, and has been reported to practice voodoo on people sleeping in the room.[
There is also a ghost who reportedly walks, staggers, or crawls up the stairs and stops on the 17th step. Some have said that this is William Winter, the victim of the only verified murder in the house. Alternate versions of his murder claim he managed to walk or crawl up the stairs, and collapsed in his wife's arms on the 17th step. However, this version of the story is contested. There have been other reports of odd sounds, but they generally do not have legends attached to them.
There is also a legend of a young girl with blond hair who was skipping down the stairs to the house singing a song. She looked in the mirror and was shot by an unknown someone. Her spirit stayed within the mirror, hoping to this day to see the face of her killer again to take revenge. There have been sightings in the mirror of a girl, about nine years of age, crawling or slowly walking up and down the stairs humming a tune. There have even been sightings in the mirror of the same girl kneeling on the stairs and crying. These sightings have only been made in the mirror. Whenever someone turns around to look at the stairwell, all is normal. Someone even caught a picture with a cell phone of the girl, though very few people got to see it before it was mysteriously erased.
MYRTLES PLANTATION GHOSTS PHOTOS BY DAVID STANLEY
A real Myrtles ghost photo or trick of the lights? GHOST PHOTO sent to us by David Stanley
We had just finished the “Mystery Tour” at the Myrtles on August 1, 2009. The time was approximately 9:30 P.M. on a clear, hot August night. I was sitting on one of the rocking chairs in front of the store and took the picture of my daughter, Carley, looking into the walkway between the store and the main house.
When we first saw the picture, we were startled by the image of a bearded man at the top of the window. We soon realized that the image was a painting of a man in the last room of the tour. We were disappointed until my wife, Amy, noticed the image below. I never saw it as clearly as she did so I enlarged the area with Photoshop and then we saw what appears to be a sitting figure staring out of the window.
I showed the pictures to all the people at my office and the results were about 50 -50. Half of the people see it and half do not.
I remain skeptical so I decided to send the photographs to a neutral party PHOTO sent to us by David Stanley

Author of 49 books about history, hauntings
and the unexplained in America for Whitechapel
Press and Barnes & Noble Press respectively.
He is the founder and president of the “American
Ghost Society”, a national network of
ghost hunters that collects stories of ghost
sightings and haunted houses and uses investigative
techniques to track down evidence of the supernatural.
Taylor was born on September 24, 1966 in
Decatur, Illinois, a Midwestern city that
is steeped in legend and lore. Even the hospital
in which he was born is allegedly haunted
by a phantom nun! He grew up fascinated with
“things that go bump in the night”,
as well as the writings of haunted travel
writer Richard Winer and legendary ghost hunter,
Harry Price. In school, Taylor was well-known
for his interest in the paranormal and often
took friends on informal ghost tours of haunted
places all over downstate Illinois. He would
later turn this interest into his full-time
In 1989, Taylor started working in a bookstore
and a few years later, he wrote his first
book on ghosts. It was called Haunted Decatur
and delved into the ghosts and hauntings of
the city where he grew up. He also created
a tour that took guests to places that he
had written about in the book. The book became
an immediate success and its popularity, along
with his previous experiences with ghost hunting,
established Taylor as an authority on the
supernatural. The book and tour led to media
and public appearances and numerous requests
to investigate ghostly phenomena.
In 1996, Taylor organized a group of ghost
enthusiasts into an investigation team and
the American Ghost Society was launched, gained
over 600 members in the years that followed.
The organization continues today as one of
America’s largest and most honored research
In 1998, Taylor moved his operations, which
now included the American Ghost Society, a
history and hauntings bookstore and a publishing
company called Whitechapel Press, to Alton,
Illinois, near St. Louis. In Alton, Taylor
started his second tour company, Alton Hauntings,
which took guests to local haunted places
in the small Mississippi River town. He would
go on to put the place on the map as “one
of the most haunted small towns in America.”
