Over the years I have watched many shows about the haunted Myrtles Plantation. It was a dream come true to stay at this beautiful little plantation, talk to the staff about all of their ghost stories (some of the stories have not been featured on any of the shows), eat at the Carriage Restaurant, take the tour, stay in those amazing historic rooms, and just take in all that Southern Hospitality.
When I first walked in, I saw her standing in the gift shop and knew it was Miss Hester. I tentatively asked her if that is who she was and she gave me the biggest hug. She was such a sweetheart. She gave us a wonderful tour, told us more of the stories, introduced us to all of the staff and got us set up in our rooms.
I did happen to have a strange experience. That night as I was coughing over and over and having trouble sleeping. I put my face in the pillow while I was coughing so I wouldn’t disturb Ross when all of a sudden on the other side of me by the door, I swear I heard a little girl say, “Are you alright?” I put my head up and said, Hello? Is someone in here with me? Of course I didn’t have my recorder on because we had a lot more interviews and I didn’t want to take up all the memory. So as soon as I thought I heard that, I grabbed my recorder that I had by the bed and turned it on and started asking some questions. DId not hear any other responses and wondered if I had just imagined it, but all the hair on the back of my neck stood up. After that I was up the rest of the night hoping I might hear something else. I have not gone through all the recordings yet, but I hope I have gotten something! I will share if I did.
