This historic building is said to be haunted by at least two different ghosts. Stories say a wealthy sugar planter Mr. LaBranche had a secret mistress named Melissa, and his wife found out after he died. It was said that Mrs. LaBranche invited Melissa over for tea, drugged her and chained her up on the third floor, starving her to death. It was said Mrs. LaBranche lived for another 15 years, with the woman's corpse above her all those years. Both women's ghosts are said to linger here; Melissa making restless movements on the 2nd and 3rd floors and Mrs. LaBranche has been seen on the second wearing a blue gown.
