Neighbourhood: 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.

A historic house that's been rebuilt and then modified since the original structure (that Delphine LaLaurie lived in) burned down. You can't go inside, but it's a pretty house to look at.

Not something you can see inside of but definitely worth the stop given the history. Some tours told parts of the history. Really interesting to see how the story has evolved over time especially after AHS.

All you are able to do at the Lalaurie Mansion is to look at it from the outside. We looked at it and left- not much you can say about it.

We were on a ghost tour and they never came by this place so we had to see it for ourselves. Of course, we had read the stories of Delphine Lalaurie so we didn't need a tour. I liked how they dressed up the old place for Halloween because there'd be not much to see, otherwise.

Cool to see the house but wish you could’ve went inside. Would love to know more of the history as well. Most of our information on the mansion came from a separate tour.

Desribed as the the most haunted home in New Orleans, it is just a house on a quiet-ish street. Nothing out of the ordinary happened as we visited. Just wanted to see it, hoping there would be something spooky, but nope!

This is a nice house to see. I has quite the chilling history that adds to the ambiance. Better to see at night if you ask me.

We visited the famous mansion during an evening Haunted History Tour, but spent almost no time there so we went back during the day. Of course the mansion is not open for tours, but did find it interesting that it was once owned by Nicholas Cage!

LaLaurie Mansion is considered one of the most haunted locations in the French Quarter. You can find many websites full of information about the home and its’ past residents.

Point of interest only, as the home is privately owned. Whether you are on a paid walking tour or doing your own exploring, it is worth a quick stop. The mansion is located at the intersection of Royal and Governor Nicholls Street.

It's a beautiful landmark, but not unlike many of the historic structures you'll come across in the French Quarter. Tours are not allowed inside.
