Various comments say that the image may be ‘Chloe’ who’s the plantation’s resident ghost.

The Legend of Chloe

In 1992, The proprietress of The Myrtles captured what appeared to be a slave girl standing between two of the building on the plantation.

The National Geographic Explorer filming crew agreed that the photograph captured of what seemed to be a ghost of a slave girl. This ghost showed up in the breezeway between the Butler’s Pantry of the mansion and The General’s Store. The National Geographic Explorer featured the picture in their documentary. They also suggested that a postcard should be made of the photograph.

The postcard is called the Chloe postcard.
