Eden Brown Estate
Meander the estate grounds and soak up the ghostly lore of the dilapidated old plantation. As the story goes, a woman named Julia Huggins was about to marry her fiancé in 1822 when the groom and his best man killed each other in a duel. After the bloody affair, Julia became a spinster recluse and her lonely spirit is said to wander the grounds.

Since there aren’t any facilities here, be sure to pack a snack and bring water.
