The Myrtles Plantation
, located in St. Francisville, Louisiana, first dates back to 1796 when it was established by General David Bradford (known as "Whiskey Dave") and then passed down to his son-in-law Judge Clarke Woodruff, who lived there with his wife Sara. It's considered to be one of the most haunted locations in the United States due in large part to the horrific treatment of slaves housed on the land during its prime years of operation. Aside from the ghosts that linger on the land, a physical haunted relic is displayed inside referred to as "the haunted mirror." According to the legend of the mirror the spirits of Sara Woodruff, along with two of her children, are permanently trapped inside of it as eternal punishment for their bad deeds. It's said that if visitors take pictures of the mirror they'll be able to see the spirits' hands pressing back from the other side, as well as the outlines of their bodies.
