History

The legend of Julia Brown

Julia Brown was a voodoo priestess who lived in the swamps of Louisiana in the early 20th century. She was known for her healing powers, her curses, and her songs. She was feared and respected by the people of Frenier, a small town on the shore of Lake Pontchartrain. According to the legend, Julia Brown was unhappy with the way the townspeople treated her. They only came to her when they needed something, but they never showed her any gratitude or kindness. She decided to take revenge on them by cursing the town and predicting its doom.

On the day of her funeral, in 1915, she sang a song that went like this:
“When I die, I’ll take the whole town with me.”

As her coffin was lowered into the ground, a powerful hurricane struck the area, destroying most of the buildings and killing many people. The town of Frenier was wiped off the map, and some say it was because of Julia Brown’s curse. Some people believe that Julia Brown’s spirit still haunts the swamp, and that her song can be heard on stormy nights. Others say that she was a benevolent woman who tried to warn the townspeople of the impending disaster, but they did not listen to her.

Whether she was a hero or a villain, Julia Brown’s legend lives on as one of the most fascinating and mysterious stories of Louisiana’s history.
