Fun Fact: Chretien Point Plantation just north of Lafayette, Louisiana, was built in 1831. The 12-room mansion features a magnificent staircase that was reproduced for Tara in the movie Gone With the Wind. Legend has it that a thieving pirate was shot on his way up that staircase, and that his ghost climbs it still.
