Posts Tagged ‘Manchac Swamp’

When I think of spooky or truly authentic sounding places I have to admit New Orlean’s is one of them. I see regular pictures and video’s on the internet. It really needs to be on my list of places to aim for.

Manchac Swamp is near New Orleans and has another nickname, the Swamp of the Ghosts. The swamp was cursed by a an adept of the voodoo cult (not the nice side either) in the 20’s when locals imprisoned her on charges of witchcraft. Three small villages nearby were taken down by a hurricane that came shortly after, adding weight to the theory as far as they were concerned.

Another victim of the weather at the swamp was a cemetery, halfway between Frenier and Ruddock there was St. John the Baptist Parish which had roughly 100 souls buried there.
