The oldest plantation in Louisiana is said to be haunted by the ghosts of former owners. The site of a rumored slave uprising, it is said that the leader of the rebellion, when caught, laid a curse on the plantation and all its owners. Whatever the reality is, the owners have had a string of bad luck, beginning with the original owner, who mysteriously vanished after being summoned from dinner one night and who was never seen again. Another owner was murdered and his corpse hanged from an oak tree.
