Haunted Places in World: The Myrtles Plantation is a Haunted House


>

So you say ghosts don’t exist, but this place has a different story to tell.
Built in 1796 by General David Bradford, this stately old home on Myrtles Plantation is said to be haunted by several restless ghosts. 
Some researchers say as many as ten murders have been committed there, but others, such as Troy Taylor and David Wisehart, have only been able to confirm one murder at Myrtles. (Those two authors provide a very good history of the house in their article, The Legends, Lore & Lies of The Myrtles Plantation).
Even they agree, however, that the place is seriously haunted and easily qualifies as one of the “most haunted.” These are some of the ghosts that allegedly haunt the house:
•    Cleo – a former slave who was allegedly hung on the premises for killing two little girls. (Those murders and even the existence of Cleo are in question.)
•    The ghosts of the two murdered children have been seen playing on the veranda.
•    William Drew Winter – an attorney who lived at Myrtles from 1860 to 1871. He was shot on the side porch of the house by a stranger. With his life’s blood pouring from his body, Winter staggered into the house and began to climb the stairs to the second floor… but didn’t make it. He collapsed and died on the 17th step. It is his last dying footsteps that can still be heard on the staircase to this day. (Winter’s murder is the only one that has been verified.)
•    The ghosts of other slaves allegedly occasionally show up to ask if they can do any chores.
•    The grand piano has often been heard to play by itself, repeating one haunting chord.
Now a bed and breakfast, The Myrtles Plantation has opened its doors to guests who often report disturbances in the night.
Of course something might be there..something terrible….the story is for you either to explore or to believe.

Haunted Places on Earth: The ghost town buried in the sand

Nature has its own ways of taking revenge from the people. Though we believe that human beings are mighty enough to do what we want to do, but in reality the story is that at one point of time we have to lower down ourselves and accept that nature is nature after all. The image you see must appear to be a bit scary, and leave you with many questions as to from where have so much sand came in a house!
The image is of Kolmanskop which is located in southern Namibia, a few kilometres inland from the port of Lüderitz. The story goes way far back in the year 1908 when there was rush for diamond, as it was discovered there is a large amount of diamond in the city, and people rushed into the Namib desert hoping to make an easy fortune. In just a span of two years, the city had a new look!
Once deserted city now boasted of having a casino, schools, shops, and residential area. Man power seemed to have overpowered the nature. But soon enough the excitement tend to wither away with the drop in sales of diamond. 
Mother Nature was at its work, slowly but gradually and within no time after the First World War, the beginning of the end started. Once again in 1950s the town started getting deserted and and the dunes began to reclaim what was always theirs from the beginning.
Soon the metal screens collapsed and the pretty gardens and tidy streets were buried under the sand. Doors and windows creaked on their hinges, cracked window panes stared sightlessly across the desert.  
The fury and the revenge of nature was at its height. Once again, inspite of the advancements, the desert started increasing and crumbling deep inside the houses, streets, buildings and where not.
 Finally the revenge was over! Today it is a Ghost Town.
