We were visiting New Orleans and since I was a fan of American Horror Story Coven I wanted to check the place out. Very tragic story behind the building so you should read the history before visiting it. The building is not marked in any way so I had to look up pictures of the building so I knew I... More

Great for American Horror Story Coven fans. Kathy Bates role was based on some fact...Lalaurie Mansion is a private home,so you cannot tour inside. Be respectful and take all the pictures you want. You don't have to be on a tour to walk over and see this creepy spot.

Morbid curiosity brought me here after seeing American Horror Story: Coven. It's worth a quick look if you're in the area. It's a well maintained building on the outside - but you cannot go inside.

I have to admit I walked right past this at first. There's so much to see in New Orleans that you just don't know where to look first!! But anyway, this house is so creepy. We went at night to see it and you get this weird feeling while looking at it. You just start to feel uneasy the more... More

We first saw the Lalaurie Mansion on TV where it was shown on American Horror Story: Coven, but then got to see it in person while on a ghost tour of the French Quarter. You can only look at it from the outside but it has been beautifully restored and is a fascinating place from a historical and paranormal standpoint.... More

I really wish there was a plaque of some sort. This is a great piece of history for New Orleans, dark history, but history none the less. Great photo opportunity.

Notice in the pic, the top floor, corner window shows an odd shadowy figure. I do not recall seeing that the night of our tour at all!!! Very creepy and scary history to this place.

Great for taking pictures but it's not open to the public. Windows are boarded up so you can't see inside.

After reading about the LaLaurie Mansion, I had to see it for myself. I contacted Haunted History Tours and they informed me that it was part of their Ghosts and Legends Tour. Our tour guide, Jerry, was amazing and told us of the horrors that went on inside this house. My only wish would be that it was open to... More

Staying in French Quarter

Neighborhood Profile
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 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 Quarter, brightly colored Victorian homes and businesses, famously done up with wrought-iron features, provide a distinct and immediately recognizable backdrop for all varieties of fun. At any given moment in this historic riverside setting, some of America’s finest meals are being cooked, most potent cocktails are being mixed, and most engaging music is being performed.
