Locals call this swamp "Ghost Swamp" and it is said to be haunted by a Creole voodoo priestess named Julie Brown. Stories say she cursed the town of Frenier in 1915, singing odd songs taking the town with her when she died. On the day she died, a hurricane triggered a 30-foot tidal wave that killed a number of people in the town, mostly people that attended her funeral. Legend says for those who attended her funeral, they were buried in a mass grave in the swamp next to Julie Brown, and they still linger here to this very day. Screams of the hurricane victims have been heard in the area.
