This is not open to the public, but we researched the history of the city and building before our trip so we wanted to see it. It was eerie just standing near it and knowing the terrible things that went on inside, and it was even creepier at night. Really, it doesn't look much different than the other buildings in... More

As others have said, the LaLaurie Mansion is privately owned and not open to the public. It's beautiful architecture and sinister history makes it worth a visit. This Mansion was once the tallest building in the French Quarter and the site of many social events in the early 1800's thanks to the evil owner Delphine LaLaurie. Read about her and... More

Worth seeing if you are in NOLA. This mansion is beautiful. It's a shame it's not a museum, I'd definitely pay to see the inside.

My husband & I traveled to NOLA to celebrate our anniversary & stayed at a hotel walking distance from the famed Lalaurie Mansion. Our first night in NOLA, we walked to this well known house of horrors. Unfortunately, we didn't see any ghostly figures in the windows & there are no tours of the inside of the home. But many...

I am horrified with the Lalaurie story but the house is beautiful. The mansion was featured on my ghost tour and worth seeing. I was scared I might see a face poking through the draperies.

This is located at Jackson Square. It's freak to see this house after reading about the lady that once live there. But the funny thing is the St. Louis Cathedral you can be there in 2 mins.

The house that once belonged to the killer Delphine LaLaurie. Just to stand outside of it was enough for us, you can just feel the negative energy thats around the house. You are able to find it by yourself, but the story is what makes it so scary. I would definitely find a tour that has the house included. You... More

As a fan of American Horror Story: Covent, I was interested in the history surrounding Delphine LaLaurie. I walked the few blocks from the French Quarter to see the house in person and it's definitely creepy. A few tours went by so we listened in as the guides told the groups about the house, but I had done my own... 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.
