Every town across the world has some sort of creepy local haunt. Down here in South Louisiana, we definitely have our fair share legends. The legend of Mary Jane's Bridge is one I've been hearing about forever.
If you are one of those people that loves to get the daylights scared out of you, Louisiana is a pretty great place to live. It's home to some of the best places to get creeped out at, and some of them are right here in Lafayette or not far from it.
Allegedly, there's a one room cabin located in North Louisiana on an old farm that is called "The Devil's Toy Box". The room is made entirely of mirrors that face inward. The walls, floor and ceiling are all mirrors. If you go inside, you'll reportedly go insane or worse; the devil will appear and take your soul.
As Louisianans, it's no shock to us that we have probably the most urban legends of any state in the country. We have so many, that I've lived here my entire life and still stumble across stories I've never heard. Today I came across the legend of "The Grunch" and it's just as strange as it sounds.
I know everyone has to make a living, but this is on the verge of taking it a little far for a 'Golden Opportunity.' In Colorado, one of the local embalmers received the cuffs for selling the gold teeth he found in his dead 'patients' mouth. Normally its not weird when people walk into a pawn shop to sell stuff, but I would be asking questions if someone showed up with teeth.
