For more than 150 years, and through several generations, the LaLaurie House has been considered to be the most haunted location in the French Quarter of New Orleans.The history of the house goes that Madame LaLaurie was a beautiful lady and the wife of the owner of the house, and although people praised her for her grace, beauty and her hostess skills, there was another side to her. It was later discovered that she was a cruel and probably mentally unstable woman who treated the slaves of the house very inhumanely.

Lalaurie Mansion Reviews & Ratings
Booked a ghost tour with 'French Quarter Phantoms' via the Voodoo Lounge Box Office. The informative and entertaining tour ended here with a great story of its grim history. Owned very briefly by Nicolas Cage before he had to donate it to the IRS.
Used the witches brew tour, had a great guide and learned some incredible information through excellent stories. There is something definitely weird about Lalaurie Mansion. Great place to see, amazing history.
I can't give this 5 stars for the mere fact that a Texan billionaire owns this place and has no plans of opening up to the public. However, the grisly history behind it and its beautiful architecture is deserving of 4 stars. NOLA really has a very interesting dark side
I mean... It does a great job of being a house you can walk by. So it gets 5 stars. As for its history... It's beyond crazy.
Horrifying history that inspired and was portrayed in the American Horror Story, The Coven, season. So glad the torture came to an end, just not soon enough. Would love to see the inside but I was on a walking tour and the house is privately owned as a residence. *** May the spirits be at rest now ***
