From haunted plantations to ancient Indian burial grounds, here are two of America’s most popular haunts.
One of the spookiest spots to visit is the Myrtles Plantation in Louisiana. This slave plantation was built on top of a Native American Burial ground- which is notorious for hauntings all over the country. According to witnesses, there are 12 ghosts that haunt this plantation.
The most notorious is a slave woman named Chloe. According to legend, she was having an affair with her masters and poisoned his daughters. She was later murdered by other slaves out of fear that they would be associated with Chloe’s crimes.
Another haunted place that explores America’s past is The Exchange Hotel Civil War Medical Museum located in Virginia. In the early 1860s, this place was where train travelers would stop to get a good night’s sleep and a decent meal.

It’s no wonder that with its multiple ties to different parts of history that it is a pretty popular place among ghost seeking enthusiasts.
