Lalaurie Mansion is a popular attraction that you are not allowed into. The best you can do is a tour that gets you to stand outside and hear the tale of how the house is haunted and the atrocities that took place there. IF this...More

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

It was cool to see, but nothing special. It's a private residence, but it was cool to just see the outside.

I missed this place my first time in New Orleans but didn't miss much. It is not open to the public and not marked in any way so it looks just like another large house in the Quarter. Not worth making a special trip to...More

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
across its midriff like a strand of cheap ribbon tied
around an otherwise rather pretty and impressively
well-kept vintage dress. Throughout the rest of the

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.
