My family went to the Catfish Plantation in Waxahachie, Texas to celebrate our son's birthday. It is a restaurant housed in an 1895 Victorian-era home. It is purportedly haunted and has been featured on The Dead Files and investigated by other paranormal groups. Well, I can't say I had a supernatural experience. And, I can't say I didn't have one. I will state I didn’t go in looking for an experience. I may write supernatural thrillers but that doesn’t mean I want to be in one.
We were seated in the front dining room. A cozy room with about five tables. All of the sudden there were five loud knocks on the wall next to me. They were so loud I asked my son, "who would be knocking like that on the other side of this wall?" He shrugged and now tells me he doesn't remember hearing it. My husband doesn't remember hearing the knocking, either. Then, I heard a whisper in a male voice. It wasn't anyone at my table. Again, no one heard it but me. Paranormal? Maybe.
I’ve visited the Catfish Plantations before. Nothing happened. So, going back I felt nothing even akin to nervousness. I didn’t even feel nervous after the knocks or the voice. Until later….
If you've been to the Catfish Plantation, let me know if you've had a similar experience. If you get a chance to go to the Catfish Plantation in Waxahachie, Texas, let me know about your experience – supernatural or otherwise.
No matter the experience, I really enjoy this restaurant and plan to return again. They do serve a delightful Cajun-style catfish.
Until next time,
