Episode 77 – The Myrtles Plantation

Spread the love

Just twenty years after the founding of our nation, General David Bradford, also known as “Whiskey Dave” of the Whiskey Rebellion, fled the United States to avoid arrest and imprisonment. Bradford arrived at Bayou Sara, then a Spanish Colony, and obtained a land grant of 650 acres from the Baron de Corondelet to begin a new life. This was the beginning of a century of institutional imprisonment, torture, and subjugation. Turns out, that kind of evil leaves a mark. Since the turn of the 20th century, the property has been notoriously difficult to maintain and the ghost stories came soon after. Join us as we discuss the remarkable and horrifying history of the Myrtles Plantation.
