Red, white, and boo

Handprints in the mirrors, footsteps on the stairs, mysterious smells, vanishing objects, death by poison, hangings, murder and gunfire -- the Myrtles Plantation in the West Feliciana town of St. Francisville, Louisiana holds the rather dubious record of hosting more ghostly phenomena than just about any other house in the country. But what could be more dubious than the honor itself -- perhaps some of the questionable history that has been presented to “explain” why the house is so haunted in the first place!

"From the book: "Encounters With the Strange and Unexplained" by Matt Hoyle.

"When they came in to purchase their tickets the man asked for two adult tickets and I asked him what about his daughter, but he said he didn't have a daughter. But I saw the child: She had a white and red dress. Later when I was alone I felt a little tug on my dress, like a child might make. I felt a sudden cold numbness. I didn't want to look down."
