But better yet, it is within close walking distance of three of the more haunted cemeteries - St. Louis 1 2 and 3 - and more than a handful of haunted buildings. More Here on the Haunted Hotel and our investigation

In the heart of the French Quarter, Place D'Armes Hotel is located in what was also the heart of New Orleans in the 1700 and 1800s. The building was originally the first school in New Orleans, built in 1725. During 1788, a fire broke out in the city and the building was nearly destroyed. The headmaster and students perished in the fire. Now, some believe it is the spirits of the headmaster and the students who died in the fire who haunt the hotel. Footsteps have been heard and full-bodied apparitions have been see.
1140 Royal St.
New Orleans, LA
Lalaurie House on Royal Street is now a complex of private apartments – Its beauty belies the atrocities that went on inside in the early to mid-1800s when the cruel Marie Delphine Lalaurie owned the mansion. Although she lavished her family and guests with only the best money could provide, it was not the same for her slaves. Many were thought to disappear, murdered by the woman’s cruel hand. In 1836, a cook who was chained to the oven tried to commit suicide and caught the house on fire. The locals found seven slaves mutilated, hanging and barely alive within Marie Lalaurie home. Lalaurie fled the US when charges were made. Almost immediately, claims of ghosts circulated around the city. The ghost of a man in chains had been seen there. Groans and screams could be heard. Some had even complained they see the ghost of Madam Lalaurie bringing down her whip at them. The pic here shows a lot of security. They filmed a mayonnaise commercial there and blocked off the street.

Cathedral-Basilica of Saint Louis King of France
615 Pere Antoine Alley
New Orleans, LA 70116-3291
There are more than a few ghosts haunting St. Louis Cathedral. Not surprising as the number of people who have come to this beautiful church to worship. In fact, since 1727 New Orleanians have worshipped on the site. It is still open for regular mass which is held daily and attended by both vacationers and locals. The cathedral is the third church built on the site - two fires demolished the first two buildings, one in 1722 and a second huge fire that wiped out many other homes and business ins 1788 called the Good Friday Fire. It was rebuilt in 1794.
The Ghost of Catholic Priest Pere Antoine (1748 - 1829) is said to walk the alleyway beside the Cathedral dressed in his Capuchin friar garb and sandals. He was said to walk many times along this route tending to the sick in the community regardless of their religious affiliation.
The Ghost of Pere Dagobert, a Capuchin monk, protector of the poor and pastor of St. Louis Church in 1745 haunts the cathedral. His voice has been heard before the high altar when the church is closed for the night.
The Bell Tower Ghost is said to be haunted by two ghosts, none other than Englishman Benjamin Henry Latrobe who was commissioned to design the tower and New Orleans clockmaker named Jean Delachaux who put in the clock. Strange happenings like odd sounds and sightings have occurred since the tower was built in 1820 when Latrobe died of yellow fever. Delachaux died many years later, but he has been seen checking the timing of the clock.
