You can only view from the outside... but the stories and the history...spine-chilling. The list of previous owners and their time owning the property is quite interesting.

To be honest, it was a bit of a let down. You can't enter, as it is privately owned. There's nothing that marks it as different. It's honestly one of the more bland houses on the block. But the story is a cool bit of...More

The current owners do not allow people inside the building. There are a lot of stories behind this mansion and I think the best way to learn about them is to take one of the many walking ghost tours that stop there at night. They...More

My friend and I wanted to see this so luckily it was in the middle of where we were going so it wasn’t a special trip to get there. You can’t go inside but you still get that creepy feeling just being outside there...

Terrific Ghost Story! Our tour guide provided us with a very sinister tale of torture and murder. However, upon conducting independent research, the tale has been greatly sensationalized. It was interesting to note that the "Bee" or the paper (during that time period) that provided...More

Gruesome story behind the building itself which was featured in Coven, season 3 of AHS. The mansion itself is nice and in good condition. However, it is just a photo op on the outside of the mansion which is why I gave it 3 stars....More

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.

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

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.
