Places to visit in Соединенные Штаты Америки. Languages: en

lets tell the story of how the prosperous community of Frenier was destroyed by a powerful hurricane that struck in 1915. The storm caused extensive damage and loss of life, with many seeking refuge in the railroad depot which ultimately collapsed. There is a legend of Julia Brown, who is said to have put a curse on the town. According to the legend, the curse came true when the hurricane struck on the day of her funeral and killed everyone around. The legend of Julia Brown has become a popular ghost story in the area, with some claiming to have seen her ghost and those of others who died during the hurricane haunting the swamp.

According to local tellers, there were no doctors in the town of Frenier, and Julia Brown likely served as a local healer. Several months before her death, she began repeating the phrase "One day I will die and I will take all of you with me".

Survivors reported that a few weeks before the hurricane, she began sitting on her porch, rocking back and forth, playing guitar and singing:

When I die, I'll take the whole town with me. When I die, I'll take the whole town.

The mystery of the funeral tells a story in which many pranks were played by the wind and tide. The funeral was for "Aunt" Julia Brown, an old African-American woman who was well-known in the area. The funeral was scheduled, and Aunt Julia was placed in her coffin, which was then placed in a regular wooden box and sealed. However, at 4 o'clock, the storm became so strong that the African-Americans panicked and left the house, abandoning the body. The body was found on Thursday, along with the wooden box, but the coffin was never found.
