Oak Alley Plantation, Louisiana


The daughter of the plantation owner fell down the stairs and had to have her leg amputated when she was injured from her hoped skirt. When walking on the stairs witnesses have reported a pinch in their leg where the girl was hurt. The ghost of the wife of the plantation owner can be seen riding her horse through the long alley of oak trees in the front of the house looking for her husband.

The ghost of the owner, Louise Roman is said to still haunt her home. Her apparition  has been seen in the master bedroom, brushing her long hair. A visitor took a picture in 1987 that apparently shows her image in the bedroom.

During the filming of many movies at this location near the Mississippi River spirit figures are said to have appeared on the film. One ghostly tale stated by a Stagehand that during the filming of Interview with the Vampire, that several actors, stage hands and extras witnessed during a scene a young man falling from one of the mighty oaks to hit the ground with a loud thud. They ran to spot and it was empty of course, it was a long dead ghost, and said, by many to have been caught this ghost on film.
