The history of Magnolia plantation is murky when it comes to the arrival of union soldiers, however it is clear that the ghosts of abused and murdered slaves haunt the grounds. In 2009, Tv's Ghost Adventurers investigated the plantation. When filming in the slaves' cabin, the crew heard chanting and tapping noises. When Tv's Ghost Hunters investigated, unexplained music, coughing and a quiet feminine voice were heard.

  • Heavy heavy energy in the house

    I went to the plantation with my wife and the grounds and gardens felt fine. But then the house tour started. As soon as we entered the house I started to feel overwhelming exhaustion , almost like the weight of 12 wet wool blankets were piled on top of me. I started to loose my balance and feel like I was either going to fall over or pass out. My wife noticed and we quickly exited the house to our rental car. We went back to our hotel so I could nap and I felt something approaching the right side of the bed silently, as I fell asleep. I then had a horrible dream of feeling hopelessly trapped with no escape over and over on repeat. It was a terrible hopeless and helpless nightmare that I had to experience from a first hand perspective. Later that night it continued with a long series of dreams containing overwhelming sadness and despair that poured through me. The feeling of a parent who lost a child is the only way I can describe the grief. I would never voluntarily go back to this location.

  • first and last visit

    it was a 5th grade field trip. I'm gonna cut the the chase I see things normal people don't see. I saw multiple things that day. we just got back from spring break and it was hot outside, but the moment I stepped foot inside the hairs on my body stood up. I got cold instantly. as we were walking further in I saw a dark figure out of the corner of my eye, I turned my head and I saw a young woman crying. We were heading to the fields and once again the hairs on my body were standing up. I was outside at this point but I was freezing. I saw multiple young and old spirits walking the fields. At that point I wanted to leave I started to feel anger sadness confusion guilt sense of no hope. I ended up passing out and was taken to the hospital. they said I was dehydrated but I hadn't been. All of those emotions were to overwhelming for me to handle. Im 26 years old now and I still see things where ever I go. I will never go back to that plantation ever again.

  • Beautiful place to visit... Oh and there's ghosts?

    During a mid morning house tour on a humid 90°summer day it was comfortable to finally be in air conditioning. Walking through the house I didn't feel anything out of the ordinary and the fans made it distinctly cooler than outside but not cold. Once up in the second story bedroom I felt my left arm get goosebumps but I was nowhere near a fan or air-conditioning so I walked away thinking it was odd but nothing more. After the tour and down in the gift shop which was the servants quarters I felt goosebumps again only this time it was freezing on my left side. No gusts or air flow, nothing I could see or vents around me. I was standing near a wooden door so I tried to see if there was a freezer or something on the other side to explain this but for the life of me I can't. Thinking back I wish I did more to try to debunk the experience but I may have felt my first cold spot. I just stood there thinking about the terrible way servants and slaves were treated back then and how now there memory is lost and there small corner they called home was now a gift shop honoring the family they served with no recognition. I whispered a small "sorry" and left that area. It took some time before my left side warmed up again and just thinking about it now gives me chills.
