    82: The Old Carrollton Jail Hauntings

    Southern Gothic

    On Saturday, October 21, 1899 the New Orleans Times-Democrat ran an article under the headline: “Real Ghost Story. The Old Carrollton Jail Said to be Haunted.” Through the use of the exact words of the police officers, the article chronicles the eerie occurrences at the local jail. Built when the town of Carrollton took over as the new seat of Jefferson Parish in 1852. It was a bland brick and stucco building, two-stories tall with large doorways and heavily barred windows. Quite simply, it was bleak and hideous. Within a year of its completion, it was already beginning to resemble an “old ruin” with “evident signs of decay.” While many of the police officers who served at the Carrollton Jail stated that they didn't believe in ghosts, most agreed that the strange things happening there seemed to defy rational explanation. And over time everyone stationed there experienced something unusual in some way shape or form; from footsteps and noises, furniture moving on its own, lights turning on and off, and objects moving without cause. It is unsurprising that the haunting of the Carrollton Jail has become a part of the deep folklore of New Orleans — a ghost story that can pinpoint its origin to an exceedingly specific event, an October 21, 1899 article in the New Orleans newspaper, The Times-Democrat.

    For many of the early mariners traveling to Beaufort, North Carolina they were reliant upon physical landmarks to help guide them safely through the shoals and into the harbor entrance. Some of the early maps and charts of Port Beaufort indicate that one such landmark was the “White House.”  Little remains that offers insight into the origin of Beaufort's White House, but tradition maintains that what was once the White House is now the historic Hammock House. Identified as one of, if not, the oldest home in North Carolina, the Hammock House is full of history and tragedy from visitors both law-abiding and nefarious in the reputations.  As a result, the Hammock House has acquired more than its fair share of legends over the years, and according to local lore, the spirits of some of these guests still remain to this very day, everything from the echoes of ghostly screams to the clashing sounds of unseen sword fights.

    Steve Scariano was in high school when magazines like Circus, Creem, Phonograph and Rolling Stone were not only publishing articles on guitar gods and rock 'n roll frontmen, but offering record reviews of bands one might not hear on most FM stations of that era. Steve loved reading about and discovering new music, and before long, he was playing bass for bands in and around St. Louis and Champaign. Record albums are still very much a part of his life. He's surrounded by thousands of them in his office, tucked away in the lower level of Euclid Records.

    On Wednesday, July 10, 1706, scores of people arrived at what is now known as Witch Duck Point on the Lynnhaven River in Virginia. They were there to witness a unique but brutal legal proceeding that would never again be carried out in the colony of Virginia– the trial of forty-six-year-old Grace Sherwood by ducking. It is unknown exactly what happened when she hit the water, but what was clear to the folks who came that day was that Grace Sherwood survived and therefore she must be a witch.  Help Southern Gothic grow by becoming a Patreon Supporter today!

    The Baylor men's tennis team knocked off Stanford in the Sweet 16 of the NCAA tournament after wild performances from Adrian Boitan and Juan Pablo Grassi Mazzuchi. Michael Woodson's team is headed to the Elite Eight in Champaign, Illinois for the third straight year, and the head Bear joins the show to talk about the electric win over Stanford and preview this week's match against Tennessee. Woodson stays on board in the second segment to offer a unique perspective on what it's like to coach at a private, Baptist university in Baylor. From recruiting players worldwide to selling recruits on the team, Woodson breaks down how Baylor can out-recruit teams like Florida, Ohio State. TCU and Tennessee. Citing the university's commitment to excellence, Woodson says Dave Aranda, Nicki Collen and Scott Drew motivate his team to meet Baylor's championship standard.

    Travel about 85 miles south of Little Rock, Arkansas along Interstate 30 and you come to the town of Gurdon. In a remote area, several miles outside Gurdon sit railroad tracks for the Missouri Pacific Railroad.  It is along a four-mile stretch of track that sightings of a floating, glowing orb have been reported for the last ninety years, now known as the Gurdon Light. While there are of course scientific theories that attempt to explain the origin of the Gurdon Light, many instead believe the phenomenon is linked to a single event in history, the murder of a railroad foreman in 1931. Perhaps not everything seen along the railroad tracks is scientifically explainable, and if not, how long has the area been that way? Is the light something that only dates to the 1930s, or is it something that has been there much longer? Perhaps the Gurdon Light has always been there, it just took people to give it a name… Additional Links from this Episode: Purchase the Feminine Macabre, Vol. 3.

    Atop Fort Mountain, in the northwestern corner of Georgia, is an 885-foot-long rock wall that zigzags its way through the curves of the mountain. Though the ruins were constructed with stone from the surrounding region, the story behind it, when it was built, and by whom, remains a mystery. Theories arose to explain the structure's origin, today most agree it was likely completed by Native people who lived in the area. But who were they? Legend says that a unique, ancient race of people once inhabited the highlands of lower Appalachia– a group known simply as the Moon-Eyed People. Often, described as light-skinned, with blonde hair and blue eyes; they were uniquely handicapped by their inability to see during the day The legend exists most prominently from the oral tradition of the Cherokee people, who purportedly encountered the ancient race upon their arrival to the region; however, the mystery as to who they were and where they went is far more complex.
