abandoned plantation

5

this past weekend I hit the road with a couple friends & explored an abandoned mansion that was built in the 1800’s. It was at one time owned by a state senator & general in the War of 1812, who later died in a duel with his cousin.
Sometimes you have to just get up and go and you’ll find some of the most beautiful places. Already looking forward to the next mini road trip, wherever that may be.

After our girlfriend disappeared for three years we decided not to go to the authorities instead just to check it out ourselves by going to this abandoned plantation that was surrounded by horse corpses but that was nothin’ but a thing so then we went in there and then we found our girlfriend but she was evil and she tried to kill us with a chainsaw so we chopped her in half but then she was like, fine - we’re cool, we’re on the rocks right now but I think it’s okay, maybe take a break, maybe see some other people, we’re gonna talk it out. But then Jack was really cool when he knocked us unconscious and invited us to dinner but dinner was like - it was like a Thai food thing and I got this allergy, we weren’t about it, Lucas is an asshole, Grandma’s FUCKED UP, and after we blew him up, burned him alive and cut him in half a few times, Jack’s kinda off our ass right now, but we got the scorpion key and the three-headed dog shit so now we’re cool and we’re outside.

So now you’re all caught up.

Oh and our hand got stapled back on.

Belle Grove Plantation, located near White Castle in Iberville Parish, Louisiana, was built in 1857 and was one of the largest mansions ever built in the South. By the 1850′s, 150 slaves were enslaved here and producing over one-half million pounds of sugar per year. The mansion cost $80,000 to built; not including the free slave labor. After unsuccessful crop years, the plantation was abandoned in 1925. In 1952, an unexplainable fire erupted in the mansion, destroying much of the grand structure.
