One of the legendary many spirits haunting The Myrtles Plantation in St. Francisville, Louisiana, the ghost of Chloe may be the most notorious. According to legend, Clark Woodruff, owner of the estate, was having an affair with Chloe, a house servant. Eventually, Woodruff tired of Chloe, and Chloe, fearing she would be sent back to the fields to work, began eavesdropping on family conversations to see if they spoke of her. Woodruff caught her and cut off her ear as punishment; to hide the scar, she always wore a green scarf. Now, nobody knows if Chloe did what she did next to get back in the family’s good graces, or as revenge: she slowly poisoned a birthday cake, and Woodruff’s wife and two children died. The other servants, ashamed at Chloe’s evil acts, hung her in a nearby tree. While this legend may be pure folklore, a mysterious photograph of a woman’s figure lurking in a shaded corner taken in 1992 has perpetuated Chloe’s myth.
