Paranormal Road Trip: Destination Houma, LA with Madison Granger

Paranormal Road Trip: Destination Houma, LA with Madison Granger

Come on boys and ghouls!  It's time to hop on Route 666 for a spooktacular Paranormal Road Trip.

This week's stop is Houma, Louisiana and our special guide is Madison Granger author of The Kindred series, including new release PHOENIX RISING.

Houma's Top 5 Spooky Places

Oak Alley Plantation

Although it is best known for the three hundred year old oaks that line the walkway leading to the house, Oak Alley is also known for its ghosts. Numerous apparitions of a woman have been reported throughout the house, as well as sightings of a woman riding a horse through the grounds. A man has also been spotted throughout the house as well.

Coteau Road

Apparitions are seen wandering the fields at night, especially around the metal sheds off the roads.

Laurel Valley Village Plantation

A former slave plantation, the road leading into the village is said to be haunted that you can often see apparitions of former slaves and people dressed in old-fashioned clothing walking along the road.

Ellender Hall-Nicholls State University

All the elements of a haunting are reported to occur here: lights turn on and off, objects move on their own, footsteps, and scratching noises.

Ormond Plantation

At this historic plantation bed-and-breakfast, folks have reported seeing shadowy figures as far back as 1880. Apparitions have been seen of a man in 19th-century garb and a young woman in an upstairs room. Paranormal investigations have resulted in video of a mysterious light traveling down the staircase.

Thank you Madison for giving us such a haunting tour of Houma!

On our last Paranormal Road Trip we visited Baltimore, Maryland with Rachel Rawlings

Next week, I will be traveling to Dublin, Ireland and the following week I will be signing at the Irish Writers Center (May 31st from 6:30-8:30pm if you're in the area!) on Parnell Square in Dublin.  I will be on a partial hiatus while away, but I will share any spooky experiences when I return.

In the meantime, I welcome you to read a former Paranormal Road Trip to Dublin, Ireland we did last year. 

Join us for another spine-tingling Paranormal Road Trip...
