Shreveport....The P Farm (old Caddo Correctional Center): this is an old unused prison that lies deep in the woods, surrounded by a high fence. It is posted as federal property and a very dangerous place to visit, but definetly once of the scarriest places I've visited. The female prison is said to be the most haunted area of the prison, but there are ghosts located throughout the entire prison and it's surrounding grounds. There is a cemetery on the grounds also, located behind the prison, supposedly where some inmates where buried. This place is said the be especially haunted because of the violent beatings of inmates and the deaths that occured there. There are upper and lower levels of the prison. Care must be taken going upstairs due to the many crumbling open stairwells. When visiting there recently, while walking up the stairs the batteries of my flashlights, as well as those of the people who were with me, all died at the same exact time. The batteries of our cameras were suddenly drained as well. Strange noises and unexplained lights within the building were seen. And some amazing photos were taken. If you do decide to visit the P Farm, it is a good idea to have someone drop you off and pick you up. Many people who have parked there cars in the area have had them broken into or stolen. This area is heavily patroled by police and is a high risk place to visit, but worth the trip, if you dare.
