Re-possessed Houses, Estates & Castles

LaLaurie Mansion

The LaLaurie Mansion is commonly known simply as The Haunted House on Royal Street. It was owned by Madame Marie Delphine MacCarthy Blanque LaLaurie in the early 1800's. Madame LaLaurie was considered a model citizen in New Orleans during that time until there were reports of her abusing her slaves, which may be saying something, considering the time and setting. The rumors became so persistent that LaLaurie was eventually ordered to forfeit her slaves after a young slave girl named Lela fell to her death from the roof of the mansion and was subsequently buried on the property. Unfortunately, Madame LaLaurie was able to buy back all of her slaves through a relative. It wasn't until the cook started a fire in 1834 in an attempt to commit suicide in order to avoid the torture room in the attic. When this room was investigated, seven mutilated and starving slaves were found, either hung, locked in cages that allowed for no movement or missing body parts. The reports of Madame LaLaurie's experiments go on and on and eventually a mob ran the LaLaurie family off into self-imposed exile, possibly to France.
Because of its torturous history, the number of paranormal activity reports at the mansion is large; in some cases, you don't even need to go inside to witness them. Pedestrians have seen the figure of Leah, the young slave, jump off of the roof of the mansion. When the mansion served as an apartment building, a tenant was murdered in what was assumed to be a robbery; however, friends of the victim said he felt there was a demon in the mansion who was trying to kill him. Perhaps it succeeded? In a twisted turn of irony, the LaLaurie Mansion had also served as a school for African American girls in the late 1800's. The young students would often complain about a dark woman who would scratch and hit them. A private owner now holds the deed to the mansion and no one is allowed inside. Maybe it's for the best for the dead to rest.

The Sultan's Palace

The Sultan's Palace is another mansion in New Orleans that is basically made of legend and mayhem. It was apparently bought by a Turkish man who claimed to be a Sultan, hence the name, in the early 1800's. In no time at all, young men and women were seen partying almost every night at the Sultan's palace. Citizens of New Orleans were allegedly not invited to these parties, but music, laughing and sounds of pleasure were regularly heard coming from the palace, as well as the pungent smell of opium circulating through the air. The party would not last. One early morning, a man passing by noticed blood seeping down the walls and underneath the door. It was conjectured the would-be Sultan was actually the brother of a Sultan and he stole from the Sultan in order to make a lavish life for himself. It's said everyone in the house was massacred and the Sultan's brother was buried alive in the courtyard.
Like The LaLaurie Mansion, the Sultan's Palace is not open for tours; however, if you're looking for real estate in New Orleans, you can become a tenant of one of the six apartments in the palace. Just be sure to keep an eye on your keys because they may inexplicably disappear. Many residents of the apartment building often see full body apparitions, one of which appears to be a Confederate soldier even though there was no battle fought in New Orleans during the Civil War.

Hermann-Grima House

Courtesy of The Women's Exchange, when you creep into the Hermann-Grima House, it will be as if you're walking back in time with at least one third of the items being original possessions of either the Hermann's or Grima's. The Hermann-Grima House was built in 1831 by Samuel Hermann, a wealthy cotton businessman and merchant, in order to bask in the fruits of his labors. However, his lavish parties came to a halt in 1837 when his excessive spending and constantly opening up lines of credit caught up with him, along with the failing U.S. economy and bad luck. They fell into two to six million dollars in debt, finally having to sell their Federal-style mansion to Felix Grima, who made his fortune off people like Hermann who fell deep into debt. Felix, his wife and nine children all moved into the mansion, along with extended family, in 1844. Unfortunately, Mrs. Grima died just six years after moving into the house and it's believed she never left.
The staff starts seeing Mrs. Grima in the beginning of October when they set up for the "Death in New Orleans" exhibit, which resembles an actual funeral setup. It's believed she does this out of curiousity or politeness since it would look like the service for herself that also occurred in October. Perhaps it's because so much care was put into recreating the mansion's past splendor, but the renovations do not seem to have annoyed the spirits at the Hermann-Grima House. The odd occurrences at the mansion seem to just include the seemingly random scent of lavender or roses, as well as the fires being lit in the mornings by an unknown spirit before the living staff come in for the day.

Houmas House Plantation & Gardens

The Houmas House is exactly what you may picture when you think of a plantation home in Louisiana. For years, Houmas House stayed in the Wade Hampton family. Parties went on for months and the finest seafood cuisine was served to the Hamptons' guests. When Wade Hampton II died in 1858, it was bought by John Burnside, a wealthy bachelor, for $1 million dollars. It was during this time the Houmas House was sitting on 12,000 acres and worked by over 550 slaves. It's no wonder Burnside was nicknamed "The Sugar Prince." After Burnside died in West Virginia, according to his will, Houmas House was transferred to his childhood friend, Oliver Beirne. Through the years, it passed through the Beirne relations until they eventually had to sell the property piece by piece after a bad sugar crop.
It's believed the spirits residing at Houmas House became more active and restless when the house went through a total renovation in the early 2000's after it was auctioned. In the beginning of renovations, a little girl in a blue dress was seen by the construction crew on a regular basis. It seemed odd to see a young girl in a work site, but before they could reach her, she disappeared. It's believed she is the granddaughter of one of the late owners, though this cannot be confirmed. The other paranormal oddity surround the "Gentlemen," the oak trees that were there before Burnside lived there, still sitting on the property. There were many other "Gentlemen" at Houmas House; however, in the late 1920's, a crew started cutting them down in order to build a levee during the Great Flood. A terrible accident occurred which resulted in the deaths of 16 men whose bodies were never found. Locals believe 16 men were killed for every tree they managed to chop down. Periodically, sounds of sawing and crashes can be heard near the tree line.

Myrtles Plantation

Roughly 60 miles northwest of the Houmas House Plantation and Gardens is the infamous Myrtles Plantation. Visitors can still see the opulence that the former owner Ruffin Stirling threw at Myrtles. It's still praised for the intricate iron framework, stained glass windows and 300 pound crystal chandelier. Today, this plantation has the whole package: it's an amazing plantation home in which you can take regular ghost tours, it's a picturesque bed and breakfast and you can plan your dream ante-booo-llum wedding here.
The most infamous phantom at Myrtles Plantation is the slave girl Chloe. At one point, she had caught the eye of the owner, Judge Clark Woodruffe. I know. It's crazy to think someone so honorable and just would commit adultery, but bear with me. Chloe dealt with the unwanted attention because it was either that or work in the fields. In order to remain in the big house, she eavesdropped on her master, but wasn't very good at it since he promptly caught her and cut off her ear. One would think she would seek revenge, but she wanted to prove her worth in the house rather than in the fields, instead, so she conspired to poison his family and then revive them. Before Judge Woodruffe could exact his revenge, Chloe's fellow slaves hung her by by one of the oak trees so they wouldn't get blamed for what happened to the family. There are conflicting reports on whether Woodruffe's family died or not; however, it's theorized this Woodruffe family are trapped in one of the mirrors in the foyer. There have been numerous pictures taken by visitors in front of the mirror in which there seems to be one or two extra faces in the photo.... As for Chloe, she's regularly seen peering through windows and floating throughout the property. There's even a famous picture taken by the National Georgraphic Explorer crew of a figure seen in between two of the buildings at Myrtle Plantation. Arguably less creepy are footsteps heard throughout the house and grand piano that plays an encore of the same tune until they get an audience.

Oak Alley Plantation

Oak Alley Plantation begins with an affluent landowner by the name of Jacques Telesphore Roman. Jacques's, or Telesphore, as he was mainly called, family had lived in Louisiana for generations and had owned most of the land Oak Alley Plantation sits on. However, Oak Alley Plantation is the product of multiple mortgages on the land and his slaves until he eventually accrued enough capital to build "The Grand Dame of the Great River Road." Jacques Telesphore was able to start building his "Bon Sejour (pleasant sojourn)" in 1837 after his mother's estate was settled; there may have been another house on the property since his sister and brother-in-law had previously lived and farmed sugar cane on the property, but records are not clear on this subject. It may have been Jacques Telesphore's pleasant sojourn, but for the passengers of incoming river boats, the mansion was sitting on awe-inspiring oaks and adorned with striking Doric columns.
The plantation had a high production of sugar cane and molassas, which also meant it was known to have a high population of slaves; at any given time, there were 110 to 120 slaves working at Oak Alley Plantation. The Roman's assigned many African Americans to work in the main house, which was apparently a greater sign of wealth than the amount of slaves workin in the fields. It was more desirable to work in the main house with the family as the field slaves were forced to work as many as 18 hours in a day and sugar cane was a more difficult crop to tend and harvest. Despite the high mortality rate of the plantation slaves, there are very few reports of seeing their restless spirits on the property. It's believed Jacques Telesphore Roman is still walking through his palatial plantation in the form of a man in grey clothing behind a tour guide; this same spirit has also been seen in mirrors. The spirit of Josephine Stewart, who is responsible for the Oak Alley Foundation and former owner of the plantation, is regularly seen throughout the house after hours and events. Other occurrences include chairs rocking on their own, a candlestick flying across the room in the middle of a tour, hearing a disembodied child crying and feeling an unseen touch staff and visitors.

San Francisco Plantation

Like many plantations of the 19th century South, the San Francisco Plantation was built to represent opulence and prestige. It was built by Edmond Bozonier Marmillion in 1855 in order to pass something on to his remaining sons, Valsin and Charles. Edmond's wife and six other children had already succumbed to tuberculosis over a 20 years span. The plantation itself was a prosperous sugar cane farm; however, Edmond was constantly in a financial black hole, which may explain the lengths he went to in order to provide his progeny with tangible wealth. The mansion itself has five hand painted ceilings and door panels, faux marbling adn wood graining. From certain angles, the plantation house actually looks like a steamboat and it's believed to have inspired Frances Parkinson Keyes to write her 1952 novel, Steamboat Gothic. The origins of the name San Francisco Plantation is shrouded in legend, but it's believed the construction of the mansion cost Edmond "the shirt off his back," or "son saint-frusquin," which then was watered down into San Francisco.
The San Francisco Plantation has been formally investigated by the International Society for Paranormal Research in 1996 and then again in 2003. They were able to capture figures on thermal imaging cameras and make contact with whom they believe to be Charles Marmillion. Both he and Valsin died from tuberculosis in the 1870's, so it's conceivable the entire Marmillion family still resides in the gothic steamboat. A small boy has been heard crying at night and a little girl has been seen along the stairs. It's conjectured she died on the staircase, though there is no evidence to confirm this. An older gentleman has also been seen on the roof and upper floors; he, of course, is also believed to have died by falling off of the roof, but again, there is no way to confirm this.

Winchester Mystery House

What do you get with a widow with millions of dollars, too much bad luck and an unhealthy belief in mysticism? You get an insanely mysterious Winchester Mystery House. If you haven't heard of the Winchester House after the movie Winchester, then welcome to the house made to house and confuse the paranormal. Sarah Winchester was the widow of the heir to the Winchester Rifle fortune. She lost her husband and her child in the same year, but also was the sole beneficiary of the firearms fortune. She believed she was haunted by the victims of her in-laws' product and this was confirmed by a psychic she visited in her home of New Haven. This psychic told her she needed to move west and build a house that would never be completed. So, when it seemed like the house was about to be completed, according to her plans, she would order the construction crew to redo everything they did. Once she died in 1922, construction completely stopped which would explain why some rooms are missing floorboards and nails are only hammered in about halfway.
Thirty six years and 5.5 million dollars later and you have the Winchester Mystery House. Call it dealing with grief or spending money as if your life depended upon it, there's no denying there is something odd about the Winchester Mystery House. There haven't been many reports of hauntings from Sarah herself, however, she did build a seance room for herself and it's difficult to believe that didn't open the house to some spirits, victims or not of the Winchester rifle. Visitors today can experience temporary blindness and cold spots while they tour the house. If anything, the disorientation one may feel while walking through the house would unsettle anyone. There are 160 known rooms, but there may be more, there are 13 bathrooms, spider web glass panes, doors leading to nowhere or even a steep drop and stairways leading only to ceilings. Even today, there are new discoveries made by visitors and staff alike.

Belcourt Castle

Belcourt Castle was built in the early 1890's and was meant to be basically a lavish bachelor pad for Oliver Hazard Perry Belmont. It cost 3.2 million dollars to build, which would be over 60 million dollars today. This "summer cottage" villa has four wings, 60 rooms but only one bedroom and no kitchen, since he only intended to use it as a summer home. There was an entire floor dedicated to Belmont's coaches. Belmont had collected many treasures in his life; in addition to coaches, he collected manuscripts suits of armor, stained glass and carriages. Although the original purpose of the Belmont mansion was to enjoy his bachelorhood, he eventually found a fish in the sea by the name of Ava. Unfortunately, Oliver and Ava were only married 12 years before he died from poisoning from a burst appendix. After Belmont died, Alva converted the bachelor pad into a more livable castle while still giving heavily to charities and women's movements. After Alva died, the castle went to Oliver's brother and eventually traded hands until it was used by the military during World War II. Eventually, a family did buy and live in the mansion for many years, but they also opened it for tours and weddings until the early 2000's. In 2012, it was bought by the current owner who plans to renovate and restore the castle, eventually opening it up as a museum.
Over the years, there have been a number of odd occurences at Belcourt, ranging from suits of armor moving on their own to shadow figures standing over the sleeping occupants in their beds to strange smells. In addition to the moving suit of armor are reports of screams and shrieks coming from inside another suit of 16th century armor. It's also thought with so many artifacts under one roof, spirits may have attached themselves to some of these objects and don't want to let go, wherever they travel. Tour guides have also heard disembodied voices, particularly in The French Gothic Ballroom, telling visitors to get out. There are so many entities seen in the Belcourt Castle, it would take a book to talk about them all. You can read about Harle Tinney's, a former owner of Belcourt Castle, ghostly encounters in her book, The Ghosts of Belcourt Castle and hear all about the Monk, ladies in formal dresses, ladies dancing, soldiers, a Samurai Warrior and many others.

Seaview Terrace

Seaview terrace, a.k.a. Carey Mansion, a.k.a. Collinswood Mansion, was designed by Howard Greenley and built for the Old Crow and Old Hermitage whiskey magnate Edson Bradley in 1907. It took four years to build and originally sat in Washington, D.C. until the Bradley's decided to move to Rhode Island; rather than move into a new home, they arranged for their grand home to be dismantled and moved to Newport, Rhode Island. This process took two years and by the time the Bradley's housewarming party, rooms and contents were still being moved from France and Washington, D.C.. and by the end of 1925, there were a total of 63 rooms. Seaview Terrace remained in the Bradley family until 1942 when it was seized by the city of Newport due to back taxes and was used as an officer's quarters for the duration of the war. During the 1950's, it was used the new home of The Hatch boarding school and when they vacated, it was used as a summer getaway for an all-girls' boarding school until it was bought by the current owners in 1974.
Despite the fact the mansion has been under the same ownership for over 40 years, the original owners don't seem to want to give it up and it's not surprising since they brought it with them across many statelines. Edson's wife, Julia, died shortly after the mansion was moved to Newport in 1929 and her funeral actually took place in the mansion's chapel; sometimes organ music can be heard in the hallowed halls and it's believed it's Julia playing in the home she loved. The only problem is the Esty organ does not work anymore. Appropriately, dark shadows have been reported in the house, as well as disembodied footsteps, voices, banging and jiggling door handles.

The Allen House

This mansion was built with oak and pine trees from Joe Allen's own timberland for his family in 1906 by architect Sylvester Hotchkiss and builder Josiah B. White. It's influenced by Gothic and Victorian architecture and has stained glass made in New Orleans and wood window frames crafted in St. Louis. Before this land was covered by such an opulent dream house, a girls' school, the Rodgers Female Academy, functioned here since 1857, but was turned into a pseudo-hospital during the Civil War. Joe Allen was one of those successful entrepreneurs who invested in the future of the town in which they lived; therefore, not only did he build his mansion, but also the Allen Hotel, a private school and a theatre.
Unfortunately, Joe died at the age of 54 from heart failure and it went downhill from there. After a series of failed relationships, Ladell Allen Bonner, one of Joe's daughters, couldn't take any more heartbreak, on top of not really dealing with the death of her father 31 years prior. She drank mercury cyanide after being abandoned by her first love, who loved his money more than her. Her spirit was seen in Ladell's room by her mother shortly after she committed suicide, which may be why she sealed the room off (remaining this way for 37 years). Her father Joe has also been seen in the house and heard on investigators' voice recorders. It's believed he tries to keep Laddel company, as they're both heard walking around and making odd noises, which has frightened many owners over the years. Another spirit heard on EVP's is Joe's wife, Caddye, who is still very vocal about Ladell's ex-husband, Boyd. She's been heard to say he was "drunk every Christmas" (HauntedHouses, Inc., 2018). Allen Bonner, Ladell's son, who is buried in the nearby Oakland Cemetery after dying at 28 of pneumonia in New York, is another family member who haunted the Allen House. He allegedly moves objects and calls out to whomever the current resident is, especially the ladies of the house. There are other apparitions in the house; however, it is unclear who they might be, aside from residual energy from when there was a school on the property.

Villisca Axe Murder House

Photo Credit: Ghostly World

The allure of a cold case is a life-size puzzle for those who enjoy speculating on whodunnit? In the case of the Villisca Ax Murder, however, there are no suspects that appear to be the clear culprit behind the 1912 mass murder of the Moore family and two friends of the children who stayed over for a sleepover. Prior to the murders, the Moore's attended a Children's Day service at their Presbyterian Church and afterwards socialized with their community that was comparable to a family. The next morning, each person in the house was found mutilated by Josiah Moore's own ax, some hit 20 to 30 times, according to the constable. To compound the macabre, all of the mirrors were covered, as were all of the windows that could be covered, as well as the victims' heads, and oil lamps were found at the end of the beds; a pan of bloody water was also found, presumably used by the murderer or murderers to clean themselves as well as the ax itself, which was still bloody but slightly wiped up. Even more bizzare was a plate of half-eaten food found, as well as a slab of bacon found lying by the ax. From witness reports, it's unclear what could have been left by the murderer or by the numerous citizens who insisted on seeing the horror for themselves. After the victims were found, accusations flew and the entire town was no longer that closeknit community. There were several suspects behind the murders, and the only person who was arrested was eventually acquitted during the second trial; however, whoever was behind the murders is most likely dead.
It's widely believed the house is haunted by the Moore Family and the two Stillinger girls immediately after their murders, especially since justice was never served. A previous owner's own children had reported hearing banging and children's voices, followed by sobbing in the night. The owner did not believe them until, on another night, he was sharpening his pocket knife when it suddenly flew out of his hand; they moved out very shortly thereafter. Another previous owner was startled awake by what looked like a man at the end of their bed, holding an ax. Doors will open and close on their own and objects will move with no help from the living, especially balls. Since it has become a tourist attraction, visitors have reported seeing green lights, fog creeping up the steps, and bloodstains appearing and then disappearing. There have also been reports of being shoved or pinched, plus experiences of cold chills. Numerous paranormal investigation teams have recorded clear EVP's and even have video of of objects being moved while communicating with spirits who claim to be the murder victims.

Himeji Castle

Photo Credit: Japan Guide

Part of UNESCO's World Heritage Site List, Himeji Castle, also known as the White Heron, is also revered as a national treasure and architectural work of art. It was originally built in 1346 by Akamatsu Sadanori to defend against local shoguns and is still largely intact as it was ironically never part of any major wars or other disasters, man-made or environmental. The castle is made up of 82 buildings, over 30 turrets and is built to complement the natural landscape; the castle that you visit today is the product of Himeji Castle being passed along in gratitude to Ikeda Terumasa for their support of Ieyasu Tokugawa, founder of the last shogunate. This would prove to be very beneficial to Ikeda, not only because of the grandeur of Himeji Castle, but also its position in the Harima district and the fact that they were Toyotomi sympathizers in this and surrounding districts. Ikeda started renovating Himeji Castle and modeled it after the emperor's own castle in Azuchi. Over the years, many other clans "took control of the castle after Terumasa, including the Honda, Okudaira, Matsudaira, Sakakibara, and Sakai" (Columbia University). As you progress through the main building, the intact portholes and rock chutes can still be seen, as well as narrow passageways used to slow down invading armies and keep them exposed to the defense. Visitors can even see fish roof ornamentation from the very top of the six-story main building, which superstition claims will protect the buildings from fire; this may not "hold water" as some of the original buildings were lost to fire in the mid-twentieth century.
The whiteness of Himeji Castle will pale in comparison to its ghost story that has inspired a kabuki play about the poor servant girl Okiku. She was framed for stealing one of 10 golden plates owned by the Tetsuzan family because she refused to be her master's mistress. Tetsuzan couldn't take rejection, so in addition to framing her for the missing plate, he allegedly also had her tortured and killed over the well that now bears Okiku's name. Afterward, Tetsuzan allegedly saw Okiku's vengeful spirit walking through the corridors of Himeji Castle and the constant sightings drove him mad. Even today, it's believed it's Okiku's voice coming out of the Okiku-ido, or Okiku Well, softly counting each plate one by one until she gets to nine...and then shrieks, crawling back into her well. Okiku makes her presence known mostly at night, but visitors still report cold spots and objects disappearing and then reappearing in the nearly 800-year old medieval castle.
