Chretienne Point

Following the death of infamous pirate Jean Laffite, his men returned to Louisiana to the beautiful antebellum mansion, Chretienne Point, in order to rob its namesake, Madame Chretienne. Chretienne was a close friend of Laffite and was a rather wealthy recluse. When she heard the pirates breaking into her home, she fled and looked for an escape, but became cornered by one of them. Brandishing the Derringer pistol she had hidden within her clothing, Chretienne shot the assailant between the eyes, causing the others to evacuate at the sound of the gunshot. She proceeded to stow the body away in the closet, where it remained for three long days until authorities could reach her rather secluded abode.

Poor Farm in Greenfield, Pennsylvania

Before the poor farm was built, there was a house on the same spot. During the Civil War, it was used as part as the Underground Railroad and was later converted into a nursing home. However, the building burned to the ground. The nearby intersection was nicknamed the “Four Corners of the Spiritual World”, as there were four corners with four different locations that seemed to make up the setting of most of the town’s inhabitants’ lives.

On one corner, there was a carnival that would take place, which residents would visit before going to the church, located on another corner. When they got old, they would go to the poor farm, on a third corner, which was proceeded by the fourth and final corner – the cemetery.

One day, the owner of the house asked his neighbor to keep an eye on it while he was gone – he never returned. Eventually, the house was sold, and the new owners made plans to renovate the place. While working on it, the construction crew was troubled by hauntings, and they were forced to walk out on the job. The owners then came to the decision to build a new house slightly behind the old location.

The poor farm is home to both benign and malevolent spirits; the most sighted evil spirit is a shadowy man who runs atop the building.  On some nights, apparitions of rooms that don’t exist anymore appear. The paranormal activity is heightened by the local witches who practice their craft nearby.
