This isn't exactly a ghost story, but one of the interesting things at the St. Francisville Inn in St. Francisville, Louisiana, was a bottle tree that seemed to have been around for some time. Bottle trees come from the voodoo religion - people believed that when an evil spirit sees the sunshine dazzling from the beautiful bottles, it is enamored and enters the bottle. Like a fly, the evil spirit then becomes trapped within the bottle; too dazzled by the play of light, the spirit prefers to remain in its colorful prison, rather than trouble the world of the living. They are very prominant in old Louisiana gardens.
