The history of this location is crazy, if you love history and Halloween this tour is for you! We walked around on a misty Halloween night listening to the history of the LaLaurie Family. It is a beautiful building and full of spooky history.

This place was a stop on a tour and it’s definitely haunted. Previously owned by many people but most famous was Nicholas cage. Free to walk on your own.

This was a spot on our ghost tour. It was definitely my favorite story of them all. Also, this was Nicholas Cage's house.

This house is not set up as a tourist attraction and you are not allowed inside. It's merely a mansion on a corner. I felt negative energy but honestly I think it was more so because I knew that my ancestors once were tortured and...More

The house is spooky from the outside and completely dark. Rumor has it that because of the abuse of the slaves of the owner of the home in the 1820s, Delphine LaLaurie, that the house is haunted and unlivable. Who knows? But there is a...More

French Quarter
A small and teeming network of laissez-faire living
lounged out on the balmy banks of the Mighty
Mississippi, the French Quarter has long been a port
of call for folks in search of a good time and a great
story. Perpetually inebriated Bourbon Street runs

nope, it's a private property, but as a landmark you can see the house from outside, get the history and if you are lucky catch a ghost with your camera.
