Lalaurie House - Real New Orleans Haunt
This mansion was once a tourist attraction but is no longer in operation. It was once owned by Madame Lalaurie, who was said to be quite vicious of a person. Her home was reported to have a high number of slave turnovers and one neighbor said that a young slave girl jumped to her death rather than face punishment from Madame Lalaurie. In 1834, a fire broke out in the mansion, and when help came to the home, they found slaves bound, tortured, whipped and kept in such horrid conditions that an angry mob attacked the place. The Lalaurie family fled New Orleans in fear of their lives after the public became outraged with them. The location is believed to be haunted, possibly with the slaves who were once kept here.
