Wrought iron balconies lining the narrow streets of Haunted New Orleans historic Vieux Carré are just one of the French Quarter's most prominent and memorable features.

Ghostly Tales of Haunted New Orleans Balconies
Readers’ submissions reveal the presence of ghostly inhabitants with a bird’s eye view of the Haunted French Quarter!

submissions by our readers Photos Goldi Beals
In recent weeks Haunted America Tours featured a report on the numerous haunted balconies overlooking the New Orleans French Quarter. Since that time, readers have made submissions detailing their personal experiences – sightings and ghostly encounters among the lacey wrought iron glades that overlook the streets of the Old Quarter.

On a balcony overlooking the quaint cobblestones of Royal Street the ghost of a beautiful young Creole girl has been sighted. Dressed all in white, the young woman is seen pacing the balcony in the early evening hours, when the sky is sapphire overhead. One report tells of the young woman flinging herself over the railing of a third story balcony. The event was witnessed by several people some of whom ran to the spot where the woman appears to land. When they arrive, they find nothing – no one in the street or anywhere around. Another report tells of the same young woman spotted crying and wringing her hands over the side of the balcony in the evening light. Shop owners in the stores below the balcony have nicknamed the ghost “Juliet” and say this is because she seems to be waiting on a Romeo who never arrives.

A condominium balcony overlooking Jackson Square is apparently the scene of a reenactment of a fist fight from another century. The current resident tells of being awakened in the dead of night by the raised voices of men arguing; the scuffle of feet is heard as the voices seem to move back and forth on the balcony. The resident tells of seeing the forms of two men in 18th century clothing pushing each other on the balcony. At one point, one of the ghosts appears to break away and runs out of sight. When the owner investigates, there was no one to be found anywhere on the antique balcony.

Another secluded balcony overlooking the residential end of Bourbon Street is the scene of a tryst from another time. A resident who lives across from the haunted balcony reports seeing the near transparent forms of a man and a woman in “old time” clothing sharing a kiss on the balcony. The couple is reported to disappear into thin air at the slightest movement from the street below. One report of this sighting indicates that there is no set time for the apparitions to appear, and one report tells of the amorous couple appearing in the bright sunlight. Perhaps a testimony to a love that has truly transcended time?

A hotel balcony popular with the Mardi Gras crowds is the apparent scene of a perpetual high school prom party. There have been several reports of sightings of debutantes in white prom dresses and young men in suits and ties laughing and socializing on the modern balcony to the sound of music that was popular in the 1930’s. The hairstyles of the men and the women’s dresses confirm that this is a happy scene from a simpler time.

The balcony at one popular night spot is the apparent location of a haunting by two famous ghosts of rock and roll. The bar, popular with 1970’s rock bands, is located on the Rampart side of the quarter. No longer the destination it once was, employees nonetheless have reported that they have encountered the spirits of two legendary drummers in the vacant upstairs area. The ghost of Led Zeppelin’s late drummer John Bonham is reported to still be playing pool in the upstairs room; he appears complete with the “crack” of the balls on the pool table. And Bonham is said to have the company of deceased Who drummer Keith Moon who has apparently taken up residence in a wrought iron chair on the balcony outside – the chair is part of the sighting, because the balcony is presently in disrepair and no furniture is allowed outside.

And the ghost of Elvis Presley is said to appear on a Royal Street balcony near Esplanade Avenue. Elvis, who lived in the French Quarter during the filming of his famous movie “King Creole,” is said to appear as the handsome young man who ignited the teenybopper rebellion of the 50’s – slick black hair and a white T-shirt. Elvis is seen “just looking” down Royal Street before disappearing, sometimes right before the eyes of onlookers.

A balcony overlooking Bourbon Street near the intersection of St. Ann is apparently the scene of the reenactment of a tragedy from another time. Reports tell of a young black workman seen standing on the railing of the third story balcony, apparently making repairs to the ironwork. Many locals taking the air on nearby balconies have reported seeing the man: his appearance is apparently not sensational, except perhaps for his precarious position. But suddenly the sighting becomes all too real with a horrible cry of “OH GOD! NO!” followed by what sounds every bit like a “thud” on the cement below. When nearby residents rush down to the street level they are puzzled to find that there is no sign of the fallen worker and that nothing is unusual. When attempts are made to report the incident to the shop owners at street level, the response is usually a roll of the eyes and another opportunity to tell the story of the “workman’s ghost” once again. A variation of this troubling tale is that sometimes no sighting accompanies the sound, and those who hear he horrible scream at first have no idea where it has come from. Assuming the worst, several concerned people have walked several blocks attempting to locate the source of the sound, certain that someone has just injured himself.

An interesting sighting on a St. Philip Street balcony is that of a man in 18th century garb who appears to be spreading some sort of grease or oil on the wrought iron poles of the second story balcony. He seems oblivious to gawking onlookers, one of whom even called out to him asking what he was doing. The sight of men in 18th century garb is not unusual in New Orleans, where history tours and carriage drivers often don antique clothing. But the sight of a man in 18th century clothes busy at an 18th century task, who disappears before one’s eyes, is highly uncommon and to some downright disturbing. The man is apparently busy spreading lard on the balcony poles with only one possible purpose: to keep aggressive suitors from climbing up the poles in an effort to reach eligible young ladies within. The only problem with this scenario is that such practices disappeared with the Civil War (except during Mardi Gras … ) and usually the man thus occupied is neither transparent nor is he able to disappear into thin air, as the gentleman on the St. Philip balcony is reported to have done …


Several reports of ghosts still jumping from the burning balconies of the great New Orleans Fire of 1797 have been forthcoming. Some residents and tourists have reported seeing Royal Street in flames, and a local firefighter, who asked to remain anonymous, tells of the frustration of dealing with “almost daily” calls of fires on Royal and on Decatur, or more alarming of people jumping from balconies in flames. “We have to come out on every call,” he says. “I mean, you never know if it’s real or not. Usually it’s so dramatic that you think it just can’t be real, but we have an obligation to respond to every call.” Although some reports are legitimate, the large majority of reports of massive loss of life and flaming balconies are considered dubious at best, and generally are not supported upon investigation by the men of the New Orleans Fire Department.


Police have responded several times to a balcony on Burgundy where residents and tourists have been alarmed to see the lifeless figure of a white-haired man dangling from the ironwork. Concerned that someone has committed suicide, locals and tourists alike have called the New Orleans Police Department in distress. Like the fire department, the NOPD is required to investigate every call. Inevitably, they arrive and find no dangling corpse and nothing amiss, except a puzzled Burgundy street resident who perhaps didn’t realize his lacy retreat is the site of a haunting!


Civil War soldiers and even “The Beast” General Benjamin Butler have been reported whooping it up on the “most photographed balconies in New Orleans” located on Royal near St. Ann. The building is immediately recognizable behind the lush ferns and tropical plants, but the site of amorphous, ghostly soldiers from another time is something out of the ordinary. Again, some tourists assume the sight to be a recreation of Civil War history, but locals know better, especially those who have been locked by the ghostly gaze of Beast Butler as they make their way home on the deserted cobblestones of the Old Vieux Carre.


The balconies of New Orleans, haunted or not, are a unique architectural wonder that adds to the unique flavor and character of this most European of American cities. These iron masterpieces have witnessed centuries of history and are lovingly preserved by their owners and caretakers to this day. This alone is reason enough to stop and look up when you are visiting the quaint old streets of Haunted New Orleans. But the possibility that you may sight a ghost on one of these beautiful elevated oases is very, very real. These beautiful old “nests” are as much a part of New Orleans as jazz and jambalaya, and so are the uneasy dead who inhabit them, gazing out over Haunted New Orleans.
