Originally called “Laurel Grove,” Myrtles Plantation was an antebellum plantation built in 1796 by General David Bradford, who resided there until he was needed for the Whiskey Rebellion in 1799. Over time, the plantation was sold and passed from family to family.
Steeped with history and folklore and built above Tunica Indian Burial grounds, Myrtles Plantation continues to be a popular tourist attraction due to its association with paranormal activity, which has been featured in popular medias.
Now, Myrtles Plantation is a bed and breakfast with a full service restaurant, offering tours for visitors to experience one of America’s most haunted homes.
