As a fan of American horror story coven I came by the mansion. There are not any signs posted as it's a private residence. I literally took one pic and left.

From the fame brought to it from American Horror Story, it seems everyone knows about this house now. I still have not found a way to see the inside but standing outside, seeing the house and hearing the stories from one of the many tour guides or even just looking it up yourself, it's amazing. SO much terrible, eerie history.

Not much to see here. It's a private residence and closed to the public. Supposedly haunted, and those who are looking can see weird things in the windows at night! Not worth a trip though.

The visit to this mansion is cool only because of the stories that throughout time have been attached to it. I was in New Orleans in September of last year and saw it for the first time during a haunted ghost tour. The building can only be seen from the outside so it's rather disappointing. I took my husband to... More

Since its a PRIVATE residence and owned by a PRIVATE citizen, there are no tours. It is amazing how much attention is paid to a structure that has burned twice and been rebuilt twice. The original house had only two stories, no connecting structure and the missing window has a bath with a shower....hence no window....The waterfront property in Arizona... More

Seeing the mansion is nice but it is the story behind it that makes this a landmark. If you don't pay to take the tour, you have to do your research ahead of time or this will look like any other house.

This was one of the highlights of our trip. We booked a night tour with Haunted Tours with the specific purpose of hearing more about this horrible part of New Orlean's past. Out guide was a man named Andrew who was simply amazing. We went on many other tours during our two week stay but no one even came close... More

Not a huge amount to see, but still interesting to take a look at the house which is famed for the horrors of Delphine LaLaurie & believed to be the most haunted in the city. Notice that one of the windows on the top floor is still boarded up, believed to be out of respect for one of LaLaurie's slaves... More

We did a ghost tour our first night that stopped here. The kids loved it and wanted to go back over and over to look for ghosts in the windows. It's worth the walk.
