What is the most famous ghost story from Louisiana?

One of the most famous Louisiana ghost stories is about Chloe, the spirit that still haunts the Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville. After having her ear cut off as punishment for eavesdropping on her masters, she baked a poisonous cake as an act of revenge with the intent of killing the master of the house. Her plan backfired and his wife and kids consumed the cake, killing them. She was hanged and thrown in the river, and many guests to the plantation have reported seeing her walking the grounds.

What is the most haunted town in Louisiana?

Louisiana is filled with ghost stories. From plantations to swamps, the Pelican State is no stranger to the paranormal. One of the most haunted cities in Louisiana is New Orleans, which is known for its paranormal encounters and haunted attractions. A few of the most haunted places in New Orleans include Jean Lafitte’s Blacksmith Shop Bar, St. Louis Cemetery No. 1, and the LaLaurie Mansion.

What is the creepiest abandoned place in Louisiana?

One of the creepiest abandoned places in Louisiana is Six Flags in New Orleans. Destroyed by Hurricane Katrina in 2005 and abandoned ever since, nature has slowly been reclaiming her territory ever since the storm. The property is closed to the public and guarded by police and security cameras, so you cannot go inside, but you can drive up to it and see it from the outside.
