"WERE REAL ZOMBIE 'S REALLY IN THE ATTIC OF THE LALAURIE MANSION!"

THE REAL SECRET SINS OF MADAME DELPHINE LALAURIE!

Lalaurie Mansion

The LaLaurie Haunted House, that was once owned by Dr. and Mrs. LaLaurie in the early 1800's, and they were famous for the outlandish parties that they threw. It is said that there was a darker side to the doctor, however. In the upstairs rooms, he reportedly practiced horrific medical experiments upon the servants. Many were chained to the walls, or kept in cages while Dr. LaLaurie worked on them. A cook finally set fire to the kitchen to end the madness, and when the townspeople rushed into the home to help, the terrible secrets were discovered. One poor servant's bones had been broken and re-set so that he resembled more of a spider than a human.

" THE HAUNTED HOUSE 1140 Royal Street New Orleans, Louisiana." Listed on the National Register of Historic Places Lalaurie House still stands. In Americas' most haunted city, the tortured ghost hold many secrets within the walls of this great haunted mansion.

"In the Rue Royale stands this quaint, old-fashioned house about which so much has been written, and around which cluster so many wild and weird stories, that even in its philosophic day, few in the old faubourg care to pass the place after nightfall, or, doing so, shudder and hurry on with bated breath, as though midnight ghouls and ghosts hovered near, ready to exercise a mystic spell over all who dare invade its uncanny precincts."
Marie Puents, The Daily Picayune, March 13, 1892

 

By LISA LEE HARP WAUGH

If they ever make a real movie about the "Most Haunted House in America" the La laurie Mansion In New Orleans. The house is owned by Ghost Rider star Nicolas Cage.

Cage has appeared in over 60 films including Face/Off (1997), Ghost Rider (2007), and National Treasure (2004). Cage has married three times, once to Patricia Arquette, then to Lisa Marie Presley, and most recently to his current wife Alice Kim Cage.

File:Nicholas Cage - KirkWeaver.jpg

Meeting fans after filming a scene for National Treasure: Book of Secrets at the University of Maryland on November 21, 2006.

Cage had a Malibu home where he and Alice lived, but in 2004 he bought a property on Paradise Island, Bahamas. In 2005, he sold his Malibu home for $10 million. In May 2006, he bought a 40-acre (160,000 m2) island in the Exuma archipelago, some 85 miles (137 km) southeast of Nassau and close to a similar island owned by Faith Hill and Tim McGraw.

He used to own the medieval castle of Schloss Neidstein in the Oberpfalz region in Germany, which he bought in 2006 and sold in 2009 for $2.5 million. His grandmother was German, living in Cochem an der Mosel.

In August 2007, Cage purchased a home in Middletown, Rhode Island. The 24,000-square-foot (2,200 m2), brick-and-stone country manor occupies 26 acres, has 12 bedrooms, 10 full bathrooms, and ocean views and borders the Norman Bird Sanctuary. The estate is called the "Grey Craig". The sale ranks among the state’s most expensive residential purchases, eclipsed by the $17.15 million sale last December of the Miramar mansion on Bellevue Avenue in Newport. Also in 2007, the actor purchased Midford Castle in Somerset, England.

According to Cage, he owns the "Most Haunted House in America", a home located in the French Quarter of New Orleans, Louisiana. The home is known as the "The LaLaurie house" after its former owner Delphine LaLaurie.

Delphine LaLaurie, also known as Madame LaLaurie (born Marie Delphine Macarty), was an American socialite and supposed serial killer, who according to legend helped torture, mutilate and kill nearly 100 black slaves. But many from the city will often tell you thats just the cleaned up version they tell the tourist. The truth is they were actually reanimated corpses brought back to life for her husband to expedient on.

Shortly after selling his German castle, Cage also put homes in Rhode Island, Louisiana, Nevada, and California, as well as a $7 million island in the Bahamas, up for sale. Many old Line New Orleans Families know or tell of the house being under a voodoo hoodoo curse. The curse also tells that someday the house will burn again and another secret will make the news.

On July 14, 2009, the Internal Revenue Service filed documents in New Orleans in connection with a federal tax lien against property owned by Cage in Louisiana, concerning unpaid federal taxes. The IRS alleges that Cage failed to pay over $6.2 million in federal income tax for the year 2007. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nicolas_Cage

 

In 2007, actor Nicolas Cage bought the La Laurie House through his Hancock Park Real Estate Company LLC. The La Laurie house was put on the market again in late 2008. La Laurie House, located at 1140 Royal Street. There is, indeed, a long and grim history associated with the house, and it is all traced back to Madame Delphine La Laurie

and the Voodoo Hoodoo Queen Marie Laveau . It has been called the "Most Haunted House in New Orleans" by many locals and tourist alike. And Many have deemed it the most real haunted House In America. I am sure Cage himself might have a real experience to discuss someday. He might tell of a strange curse that possess the house that only old family line locals have only hinted at to outsiders.

I do hope they include the truth to what was really found in the attic when they make the movie about this most haunted house. I don't me what many reported over the years as strange bodies of half alive humans, being tortured to death. The truth that many real New Orleans locals will tell you is that they were zombies!

Like everyone else I love to take ghost tours no matter what strange haunted city I am in. But you often find that many ghost tour operators and especially the guides always seem to be from another city or state. Especially when your in New Orleans, the voodoo Hoodoo capital of the world. I have heard and read the tales and seen the newspaper accounts, but had never really asked a local who's family dates back For generations, A real live 100% resident of the New Orleans French Quarter. I want to know what was the true gossip and story they heard before there was a real haunted New Orleans ghost tour.

I mean I want to know the things the guides don't know. that only someone who's family knew the story and had passed the told truths tales and worries of the time.

 

The real reason the haunted La laurie House mansions many secrets of what was going on In the Attic so called torture chamber can now be revealed is... simply because I asked.

Everyone in the French Quarter knew everyone. hot dirty cheap gossip ran quick as it still does today.

In asking locals how the fire started here are the answers they will tell you .

The great French Quarter La Laurie House fire started in the La laurie kitchen, which is notably as many believe historically accurate. Whether an accident or intentionally, the fire was set by her old sainted cook, who was kept chained in the kitchen. Some believe the Cook as well as the maid were all zombies. And this is How La laurie saved on money as well as kept her servants under control. Many tales often tell that old cook did not have a tongue.

One source goes so far as to say it was started not only because of the servant's living conditions, but more so as a personal vendetta because the cook was told her grandson's recently buried corpse was taken to the attic. And she knew that this where the zombies were made and kept.

Delphine La laurie and her third husband, Leonard La laurie, took up residence in the house at 1140 Royal Street sometime in the 1830's. The pair immediately became the darlings of the gay New Orleans social scene that at the time was experiencing the birth of ragtime, the slave dances and voodoo hoodoo zombie rituals of Congo Square, the reign of the Mighty Marie Laveau, and the advent of the bittersweet Creole Balls. Madame La laurie hosted fantastic events in her beautiful home that were talked about months afterward. She was described as sweet and endearing in her ways, and her husband was nothing if not highly respected within the community. But many locals did not associate with him they were there to visit and enjoy the company of Madame Delphine.

At the same time, it is said, Madame’s friendship with infamous very real Voodoo Queen, Marie Laveau, and that it thrived in secret midnight meetings in her courtyard.

Laveau lived not far from La laurie’s Royal Street home and the two women became acquainted when Laveau did Madame’s hair occasionally for Mardi Gras or Christmas Events. It is said that under Laveau’s tutelage, Madame La laurie began to act upon her latent interest in the occult, learning the secrets of raising the dead to do your bidding.

Like all well-established members of society, the La laurie's kept a brace of slaves to help run their Royal Street home. But the more wealth you had the more slaves you could own cloth and feed. But the LaLaurie's though wealthy did not have as many would agree the money to own so many live slaves. Early on, there was nothing unusual about Madame's relationship with her slaves, although they all seemed to hold her in nervous regard. Others say her house slaves always stood in silence and never spoke.

Others told of there strange un blinking blank stares and strange glassy eyes. Talk and gossip was always how well trained they were and how pleasant the strange French perfume herbal smell that she allowed them to wear. Many in the quarter would remark how when La Laurie Slave can into a store to do business they would just hand you a not and stand and wait for their goods. And many would remark in hushed tones how they all only listened to her sole commands alone.

But eventually, whispers began to spread through the lower Quarter of the Madame's double life and of her growing abuse of those indentured to working under her roof. Of how up-ity slaves at first would quickly turn obedient.

The whispers grew louder and louder, among the Negroes and the Free People of Color and were passed ear to ear throughout the tight-knit domestic community of the Old Quarter. That the dear little Madame was using strange powers to control them. But as always the New Orleans socialites turned a deaf ear to what they considered "nonsense" and “superstition”-- until the day Madame La laurie was seen chasing a young slave girl through the house high front on to the balcony and all around to the courtyard in the rear until she fell two stories a to her untimely death in the cobblestone courtyard, three stories below. With her broken neck and tongue less mouth agape bleeding into the small fountain.

The death, deemed an accident of course, and Madame deemed perfectly within her right to exact discipline on her property, nonetheless set off a chain of events that would assure Madame La laurie an eternal place in infamy. But many locals will expound on the tale and tell you the slave she chased was a real zombie.

As Many know you cannot use a voodoo doll to turn someone into a zombie. Or control their minds by such. If anyone would tell that using voodoo dolls would make a person think or act as a slave or zombie like to such powers then they are truly lying Zombies can only be made after a person is dead. And that is done by rituals only known to the followers of Marie Laveau.

Many say La laurie owned many zombiefied cats dogs and live stock. One strange tales of her people actually being seen leading a zombie horse into the night. And that the house was often filled with dead reanimated cats and dogs that neither needed to be fed or cared for. These zombie felines are still said to roam the old French Quarter courtyards to this day. As does the child of Satan who is said to have been born under it's great roof. The Devil Baby is said to have been born in this most haunted house, with Marie Laveau herself acting as midwife. True or not this was always the talk of the town.

NEW TALES OF THE REAL GHOSTS THAT HAUNT THE LALAURIE HOUSE

According to the verifiable report of Cathy, a local radiologist who was often a guest at the doctors' numerous gatherings, there were always strange and unexplainable events taking place in the home. Among these were unexplained footsteps on a blocked attic stairway near the bathroom in a remote part of the upstairs interior, disembodied voices in some of the guest bedrooms, and unexplained movements in the empty attic spaces.

( READ MORE VISIT HERE! )

 

 

In the general public given news stories it is said that, angered at the needless and awful death of the young slave girl, one of the older kitchen women deliberately set fire to the house. The flames had nearly engulfed most of the lower stories of the house by the time the small fire brigade arrived on the scene. The kitchen woman, it is said, ran out to the fire brigade and, hollering something about the "poor undead dead and something about zombie and bottles full of souls" in the attic, led those who followed to the top of the burning house.

There are actual accounts, with notarized signatures of at least three witnesses of high standing, of the gruesome and horrible sights found in the dark and smoky attic that day. What they saw was dead and what they believed to be half-dead slaves, men, women, and children, cats, dogs that were found in various stages of what appeared to be torment and pain -- chained to the walls by shackles on their hands and feet, some lying prone, others forced to stand in crudely constructed wooden stocks, they had been subjected to unimaginable acts of morbid atrocity. some appeared to have their e yes gouged out; all had no tongues they all seemed bitten or hacked off and in some instances crudely re-attached; mouths and eyes sewn shut altogether; noses and ears sheared off; bones broken and reset in horrible, twisted manners; genitals mutilated -- these were just some of the horrible sights that met the eyes of the fire rescuers and witnessed by ordinary citizens. Most of the slaves they believed or told the public that all those who were confined were already dead from torment or smoke inhalation; the others would not last long beyond this day of liberation.

But the truth they say was that they saw wiggling zombie toes in jars moving as still alive. Severed arms still reaching and clawing for freedom. It was not people or locked away slaves in that attic but those of voodoo hoodoo zombified beings.

Is this he real face of a real New Orleans female Serial Killer or that of a American Zombie Owner?

THE REAL SECRET SINS OF MADAME DELPHINE LALAURIE!

Mme. Delphine Lalaurie and the very real and haunted Lalaurie Mansion, the True Story!

The City was in an uproar. There were cries of vengeance against the Madame LaLaurie; they wanted her blood; they wanted her skin. And this because they thought she was torturing living beings. So, with the mob forming hot upon her heels, she escaped Royal Street and the French Quarter in her carriage, the horses dragging it madly away toward the swamps and Bayous south and east of the Quarter itself.

It is said Madame LaLaurie stopped and took refuge at the Pilot House (still standing) located on the shores of Bayou St. John, and that later she boarded a merchant schooner and escaped under cover of darkness. Where is still a matter of some debate. Though many hold that she escaped altogether to France (and a grave plaque found in St. Louis Cemetery No. 1 only two years ago seems to support this theory), others insist she escaped to the North shore of Lake Pontchartrain, and lived in secret for a time at Claiborne Cottage in what is now Old Covington. Still other accounts have her escaping to Lacombe, Louisiana, also on the North shore, where she is said to have reclaimed some of her wealth and station -- and more than a little of her old habits.

Dwelling deep in the verdant darkness of the piney Northshore woods, it is said Madame’s anger at those who had stripped her of her previous life festered and grew along with her interest in the dark arts learned at Marie Laveau’s hand. Soon tales began to spread through the rural community of the “witch woman,” the “devil’s wife,” living among them and whose strange rituals filled the dark woods with fire and smoke and otherworldly chanting. An atmosphere of dread pervaded the little community and there were whispered stories of animal sacrifices and torture, of curses falling upon land and livestock, of children falling sick and wasting away, and soon the name of Madame Delphine LaLaurie began to be uttered again with fear and loathing.

But those who are not fearful of the dark craft often become enamored of it, and Madame was said to have capitalized upon the superstitions of the rural minds to build her following. It is rumored that her dark legacy lives on to this day and there are still numerous reports of midnight ritual fires along the shores of Lake Pontchartrain or in the deep woods adjacent to the St. Tammany Trace. When the subject is raised of a satanic cult still thriving in the area, some modern day residents of the now burgeoning town of Lacombe will wag their heads in a resigned “yes” - though few will talk openly about it.

This is the legacy of Madame Delphine LaLaurie, who dabbled in great mysteries and got a taste for blood that was never sated, as long as she lived. Some say, in fact, that she has never died, having paid for eternal life with generations of blood sacrifices.

As for the home on Royal Street, it was restored and renovated many times over the intervening years, passing through the hands of many a land-loaded New Orleanian. But an odd footnote is that no one and nothing has ever thrived at that location for very long. Since being abandoned by the LaLaurie’s on that fateful day long ago, it has housed single families, schools, clothing shops, and even a government freedman’s bureau, but none stayed established there for very long. In the 20th century it was converted to a collection of studios and small apartments and as I write this, a new wave of interior renovations by Nicolas Cage. But the tales keep re- surfacing nonetheless.

Recent Delphine Lalaurie's Ghost Sightings

The Lalaurie House is a real place, though it is now luxury apartments. Whatever was haunting it seems to have never left, as there is now surfacing recent reports of new disturbances, ghost sightings and many new ghost photos. A recent visitor to New Orleans told of her encounter with a period costume dressed elegant lady atop the royal street balcony." I was glancing up I asked her might I take her photo." " I was thinking to myself how nice it was to see a lady in a long old fashioned 1900's period dress." "I snapped the photo, said Jean Mason and then looked up and she was gone." "The photo in question showed only the empty wrought iron balcony and no one in the photo even though I spied her in the view finder."

 

Although most of the current tenants always refuse to talk about the actual goings-on in the Lalaurie house, there are still worried glances and tight lips when tour groups go by or would be ghost hunters rush upon a resident to question them.

Ryan Colman was on a late night time Haunted walking tour of the French Quarter. He had taken the tour full well knowing that the Lalaurie house was part of the haunted places they would stop. And he wanted to see what info the tour guide had, as well as see what others in the crowd would say or experience when the notorious real haunted house was in prominent view.

"As our well spoken tour guide told the Lalaurie ghost story the nine of us in the intimate tour group all looked up to see a pale lady dressed in a long black floor length 1800's style dress." We all were thinking this was part of the tour's ghost experience, a few of us waved and I personally shouted up." " Please smile so we can take your picture." Well, she just nodded. The tour guide said aloud distracting us making us all look at him at once asking me "Who are you talking to! " " I then looked up as did the others and she was just gone in the blink of an eye!"

Most recently the owner of the house was in the midst of renovating the kitchen when he found a pit full of human bones beneath the wooden floor. The investigating officials stated that the bones were relatively recent in origin, just old enough that everyone knew who put them there. The owner had stumbled across Madame LaLaurie's secret private graveyard.

Although it is known that Delphine murdered quite a few people, an accurate account has never been made as records of how many slaves were owned at the time are sparse. The discovery of the hidden burial pit does raise the deep question of how many lost souls had suffered under her evil dark hellish devil woman ways.

DELPHINE LALAURIES' HAUNTED PORTRAIT The Whole Story Read More Here!

 

Marie Delphine Lalaurie

Shortly after the Louisiana Purchase, on March 26, 1804, Delphine Macarty’s husband was recalled to the court of Spain, the letter carrying this royal command stating that the young Spanish officer was ‘to take his place at court as befitting his new position.’ At this time Don Ramon was consul general for Spain in this new American territory. While in Havana, en route to Madrid, Don Ramon suddenly died and a few days later his daughter was born in the Cuban city. This infant was baptized Marie Delphine Borja Lopez y Angula de Candelaria, but she became best known in later years as ‘Borquita,’ meaning ‘little Borja,’ from the fact that she was named after her father’s grandmother.

Left a widow, Delphine Macarty and her baby daughter returned to New Orleans. Four years later, in 1808, she again married, choosing for her husband a prominent banker, merchant, lawyer, and legislator named Jean Blanque, a native of Bearn who had come to Louisiana with Prefect Laussat in 1803. At the time of his marriage, June 16, 1808, Blanque purchased the residence at 409 Royal Street and in this home Delphine became the mother of four other children: Marie Louise Pauline, Louise Marie Laure, Marie Louise Jeanne, and Jean Pierre Paulin Blanque. In that stylish Royal Street home or in the ‘Villa Blanque,’ a charming country place fronting the Mississippi River just below the city limits, Delphine Macarty Blanque divided her time, both places frequented by the socially elect.

Jean Blanque died in 1816, and Delphine Macarty remained a widow until June 12, 1825, when she again married. Her third husband was Dr. Leonard Louis Nicolas Lalaurie, a native of Villeneuse-sur-Lot, France, who came to New Orleans to establish a practice. Borquita, the daughter by her mother’s first marriage, became the wife of Placide Forstall, member of a distinguished Louisiana family, and Jeanne Blanque married Charles Auguste de Lassus, only child of Don Carle de Lassus, former governor of Upper Louisiana, and later governor of the Baton Rouge post of West Florida when they were under Spanish rule.

The Lalaurie mansion was erected in 1832 and for the next two years was the scene of many fashionable affairs, for the Lalauries entertained on an elaborate plan. On the afternoon of April 10, 1834, an aged cook set fire to the house during the absence of her mistress. When neighbors rushed into the mansion to fight the fire and try to save the furniture and other valuables, slaves were found chained in their quarters. Although the fire was extinguished, the indignation of those who found the helpless slaves blazed high and a newspaper editor, Jerome Bayon of the Bee, published a heated account of the happening and quoted those who had investigated the Lalaurie slave quarters. This newspaper account roused public indignation to such a pitch that on April 15 a mob, led by irresponsibles, charged the house and began to wreck it. The rowdies were finally dispersed by a company of United States regulars who had been called out by a helpless sheriff.

During the excitement Madame Lalaurie and her husband took to their carriage and, with their faithful Creole black coachman Bastien on the box, swept through the howling, cursing rabble and, with the horses lashed to a the full gallop, made her way out of the city. It is supposed the carriage reached Bayou St. John where a lake craft was secured, for on April 21, 1834, the Lalauries were in Mandeville, across Lake Pontchartrain, at the home of Louis Coquillon. There Madame Lalaurie signed a power-of-attorney placing her son-in-law Placide Forstall in charge of her affairs, while her husband signed a similar document in favor of his wife’s other son-in-law, Auguste de Lassus. From Mandeville the Lalauries made their way to Mobile, where a ship took them to France.

Neither Delphine nor her husband ever returned to New Orleans. She remained in Paris, living there honored and respected in spite of the lurid tales that lived after her in New Orleans. Following her death on December 7, 1842, her body was secretly returned to New Orleans and buried in St. Louis No. 1 Cemetery.

The Lalaurie mansion was sold to various owners but the tale that it was ‘haunted’ and the midnight rendezvous for ghosts grew in the telling as only such stories can grow. The principal ‘ghost’ is, according to the most frequently quoted tale, that of a little girl slave who, to escape the whip of her mistress, climbed to the roof and jumped to her death into the courtyard below. Another tale, equally untrue, was that the mistress of the mansion buried all her victims in the courtyard well. The general impression that the place was haunted was sufficient to keep superstitious blacks from passing the house after nightfall.

In the days of Reconstruction following the Civil War, the old Lalaurie mansion became the Lower Girls’ School. During the government of the carpetbaggers, whites and blacks were taught in the same rooms until the formation of ‘The White League’ in 1874, when the white element marched on the house and expelled the black pupils. In the 1880’s the mansion became a conservatory of music. No matter who has lived in it since, or the manner of business that was carried on in the ground-floor stores, the name ‘haunted’ has clung to it in spite of the testimony of those inhabiting the place that ghosts have never disturbed their slumbers.

Tradition has it that the handsome entrance door ‘was hammered out of iron by the slaves Madame Lalaurie kept shackled to the anvil.’ This must be taken with several generous pinches of salt, for the doors is not of iron but wood and the decorations on it were not cared but put on by appliqué, a sort of plastic wood applied and formed as a sculptor would lay on modeling clay. These ornamentations show, in the lower oblong panel, Phoebus in his chariot, lashing his griffins. Scattered over the door are urns, flowers, trumpet-blowing angels, a beribboned lyre, an American eagle bearing on its breast the shield of the Union, leaves, scrolls, and whatnots – a marvelous example of some unknown craftsman’s art. To save the door from the knives of souvenir-hunters, one owner painted it a dingy brown-black.

George W. Cable’s Strange Stories of Louisiana, and Judge Henry C. Castellanos’ New Orleans As It Was, contain full accounts of the Lalaurie episode. My account, differing in many respects from those of these earlier writers, is based on recently found documents, notarial acts, and family documents.”

In 1999, a crew from NOLA.com was allowed into the Lalaurie mansion by its reclusive owner. The fully refurbished house had been restored to its former glory after a century of failed business ventures and apartments. Now its gleaming wood floors and marble, and its grand staircase showed how grand the house must have been when an invitation to Delphine's balls was so sought-after. The house is a stop on almost every ghost tour in the Quarter, and many tourists knocked on the doors seeking entry. The owner allowed NOLA in to do a feature on the house in hopes of satisfying the curiosity of some.

 

The legend of the house is that the spirits of the slaves who died here so violently still haunt the house. Passersby have even witnessed the figure of a girl jumping from an upstairs balcony to escape the doctor's madness.

 

History And Time Line Of The Lalaurie House


Lalaurie Ghost Stories And Haunted Legacy Printed Tales Excerpts

"In the Rue Royale stands this quaint, old-fashioned house about which so much has been written, and around which cluster so many wild and weird stories, that even in its philosophic day, few in the old faubourg care to pass the place after nightfall, or, doing so, shudder and hurry on with bated breath, as though midnight ghouls and ghosts hovered near, ready to exercise a mystic spell over all who dare invade its uncanny precincts."

Marie Puents, The Daily Picayune, March 13, 1892

 

"Legend has it she tortured slaves to wring from them information about her mother, the fabulous Madam MacCarthy, who was murdered on a Carrollton plantation during a slave uprising."
-- The States Item, May 6, 1975



1831 - Dr. Louis Lalaurie , and wife Madame Delphine Lalaurie purchased the house at 1140 Royal St. from Edmond Soniat du Fossat. Delphine Lalaurie rises to a position of social prominence.

1833-Many rumors begin to circulate about Madame Lalaurie's cruelty to her slaves. She is seen cowhiding the child of a slave when the young girl breaks away and runs onto the balcony. Madame Lalaurie chases the child - who falls and is killed. Madame Lalaurie has her secretly buried at night in an old well in the rear courtyard of the house.

1833 -- After the death of the young slave girl, Madame Lalaurie was fined and all of her slaves were taken from her and sold at auction. She convinced relatives to buy the slaves bacj for her at auction and return them to her.


April 1834 - A fire breaks out at the house. Rescuers discover tortured, tormented slaves locked and chained in rooms in the attic. More than a dozen slaves are found - some chained to a wall and in a horrible state. Some were strapped to crudely fashioned operating tables while others were confined in cages made for dogs. Human body parts were scattered around the attic. Some firefighters are said to have fainted at the sight.

The entire neighborhood gathers and storms the house. Madame Lalaurie escapes by carriage just ahead of the mob and takes a schooner from St. John's Bayou to St. Tammany Parish. She is said to have gone to Paris but her whereabouts remain unknown. Rumors persist that she lived on the Northshore, near covington or Mandeville, Louisiana until her death.

The following is the initial local account of the fire at the Royal Street home of Madame Lalaurie. It is reprinted in its entirety.

The New Orleans Bee
April 11, 1834

The conflagration at the house occupied by the woman Lalaurie in Hospital ... is like discovering one of those atrocities the details of which seem to be too incredible for human belief.

We would shrink from the task of detailing the painful circumstances connected herewith, were it not that a sense of duty and the necessity of exposing and holding to the public indignation such a wretch as the perpetrator, renders it indispensable for us to do so.

The flames having spread with an alarming rapidity, and the horrible suspicion being entertained among the spectators that some of the inmates of the premises where it originated, where incarcerated therein, the doors were forced open for the purpose of liberating them. Previous however, to taking this liberty, (if liberty it can be called), several gentlemen impelled by their feelings of humanity demanded the keys which were refused them in a gross and insulting manner. Upon entering one of the apartments, the most appalling spectacle met their eyes. Seven slaves more or less horribly mutilated were seen suspended by the neck, with their limbs apparently stretched and torn from one extremity to the other. Language is powerless and inadequate to give a proper conception of the horror which a scene like this must have inspired. We shall not attempt it, but leave it rather to the reader's imagination to picture what it was.

These slaves were the property of the demon, in the shape of a woman whom we mentioned in the beginning of this article. They had been confined by her for several months in the situation from which they had thus providentially been rescued and had been merely kept in existence to prolong their suffering and to make them taste all that the most refined cruelty could inflict. But why dwell upon such aggravating and painful particulars! We feel confident that the community share with us our indignation, and that vengeance will fall heavily upon the guilty culprit. Without being superstitious, we cannot but regard the manner in which these atrocities have been brought to light as an especial interposition of heaven.

{Since the above was in type, the populace have repaired to the house of this woman and have demolished and destroyed everything upon which they could lay their hands. At the time of inditing this fury of the mob remained still unabated and threatens the total demolition of the entire edifice.}

The day after the fire on Royal Street

The following is the second day local account of the fire at the Royal Street home of Madame Lalaurie. It is reprinted in its entirety.

The New Orleans Bee
April 12, 1834

The popular fury which we briefly adverted to in our paper of yesterday as consequent upon the discovery of the barbarous and fiendish atrocities committed by the woman Lalaurie upon the persons of her slaves continued unabated the whole of the evening before last and part of yesterday morning.

It was found necessary for the purpose of restoring order for the sheriff and his officers to repair to the place of riot and to interpose the authority of the state, which we are pleased to notice proved effectual, without the occurrence of any of those acts of violence which are common upon similar occasions.

We regret, however, to state that previously some indignities had been shown to Judge Caponage who ventured to expostulate with the assailants upon the propriety of ceasing their operations and that during the same, deadly weapons were in the hands of many persons, a resort to which at one time was seriously apprehended. Nothing of the kind happily, however, transpired.

Nearly the whole of the edifice is demolished, and scarcely any thing remains but the walls, which the popular vengeance have ornamented with various writings expressive of their indignation and the justness of their punishment.

The loss of property sustained is estimated by some at $40,000, but others think this calculation is exaggerated. It must, however, been very great indeed, as the furniture alone was of the most costly kind, consisting of pianos, armoirs, bufets, &e, &e, which were removed to the garret and thrown from thence into the street for the purpose of rendering them of no possible use whatever.

This is the first act of its kind that our populace have ever engaged in and although the provocation pleads much in favor of the excesses committed, yet we dread the precedent. To say the least of it, it may be excused, but can't be justified. Summary punishments the results of the popular excitement in a government of laws can never admit of justification, let the circumstances be ever so aggravating. The whole of yesterday and the preceding day, the police jail was crowded by persons pressing forward to witness the unfortunate wretches who had escaped cruelties that would compare with those of a Domitian a Nero or a Caligula. Four thousand persons at least, it is computed have already visited these victims to convince themselves of their sufferings.

1837 - 1865 -The house is rebuilt and strange stories begin about ghostly sightings, unusual noises, and flickering lights in the upstairs windows. The next owner only lives in it for 3 months. The house is rented out; a furniture store occupies the basement for a short time. The house is a barbershop for a few months. No tenant or business stays too long. It is rumored that there is a curse on the location and that nothing will last long there.

"…The New Orleans mob met the carriage returning from the lake. What became of the coachman I do not know. The carriage was broken to pieces and thrown into the swamp, and the horses stabbed and left dead upon the road. The house was gutted, the two poor girls having just time to escape from a window. They are now living, in great poverty, in one of the faubergs. The piano, tables and chairs were burned before the house. The feather beds were ripped up, and the feathers emptied into the street, where they afforded a delicate footing for some days. The house stands, and is meant to stand, in its ruined state. It was the strange sight of its gaping windows and empty walls, in the midst of such a busy street, which excited my wonder, and was the cause of my being told the story the first time."
-- Retrospect of Western Travel, Harriet Martineau. 1838

1842 - Delphine Lalaurie dies and her body is said to have been buried in New Orleans at an undisclosed location.

 

1860 to 1865 - During the years of the Civil War the house was used as Union headquarters, and in the 1870's the building became a gambling-house. Stories were told and retold of the strange lights and shadow objects that were seen flitting about in different apartments, their forms draped with sheets, skeleton heads protruding. 'Hoarse voices like unto those supposed to come only from the charnel house floated out on to the fog laden air on dismal and rainy nights, with the ominous sound of clanking chains coming from the servant's quarters where foul crimes are said to have been committed.'"
-- From New Orleans City Guide, 1938.

1865 - During Reconstruction, the Lalaurie house becomes a girl's public high school, open to both white and black children.

1878 - New Orleans school system is segregated. School becomes high school for black girls only. It stays as a school just this one year.

1882 - Lalaurie House becomes conservatory of music and dancing school. Dismal failure when rumor spreads about owner of school and no one attends planned soiree and concert. Owner closed the Dance school the very next day. That night, it is rumored that the spirits of the Lalaurie house held a wild carnival to celebrate their triumph.

1889 - An apartment in the house occupied by Joseph Edouard Vigne for a little more than 3 years. He was thought to be a pauper.

1892 - Vigne found dead upstairs - after black crepe seen on the doors. An inspection of his apartment reveals over $10,000 in cash and family heirlooms stashed in various places around the dwelling. Contents of house auctioned off.

"Three years ago Mr. Beoubay (owner at the time) found a tenant…Mr. Joseph Edouard Vigne…a few days ago it was discovered that Mr. Vigne had died…he was considered very poor…money to the extent of $10,000 was discovered in various hiding places."
-- Daily States, p.5/c.1 Feb 28th 1892

"F. Greco purchased the haunted house at Hospital and Royal…yesterday he posted large flowing placards upon the walls of the building announcing in both Italian and English,'The Haunted House.' There is an end to everything, so there is with ghosts. Come and be convinced. Admission ten cents."
-- Times Democrat, June 4, 1893 p.9

1920 - House is tenement by this time - many reports of ghosts. "There were no other families living here and one night, on the third floor, I saw a man walking carrying his head on his arm," reports one resident.

1923 - House sold to William Warrington who established the Warrington House, a refuge for young delinquents.

1932 - House sold to The Grand Consistory of Louisiana (a consistory is the organization that confers the degrees of the Ancient and Accepted Scottish Rite of Freemasonry). The Consistory sold the house in 1942.

The house would become a bar and then a furniture store. The saloon, taking advantage of the building's ghastly history was called "Haunted Saloon". The owner knew many of the building's ghost stories and kept a record of strange things experienced by his patrons. The furniture store did not do as well at that location. The owner first suspected vandals when all of his merchandise was ruined several times, covered with a foul liquid filth. The owner waited one night with a shotgun, hoping to catch the vandals in the act. When dawn came, the furniture was once again ruined. He closed the place down shortly thereafter.

1941 - A grave marker plate for the tomb of Delphine Lalaurie is found in St. Louis Cemetery #1, Alley 4. But the plate is not attached to any specific tomb so the exact location of her crypt remains a mystery.

"In 1941 a one-time sexton of St. Louis cemeteries said he had discovered a copper plate relating in French that Delphine MacCarthy Lalauire had died in Paris in 1842 and that her remains were in St. Louis Cemetery No. 1. Descendents at that time said they had long known of this and had visited her tomb."
-- The Times Picayune, August 9, 1964

Workmen employed to repair the old cypress floors began digging up human skeletons from under the house. The owner of the property, in an attempt to down the mansion's gruesome reputation, announced that the house had been built over an ancient Spanish burying-ground, and that over an Indian graveyard. Which was quite true, only-the bones were too recent to have been deposited there before 1803, and they were too near the surface to have been at any time buried in graves. They were found in all sorts of positions, helter-skelter, some barely covered with soil, shreds of fabric still adhering to some of the bones; and whenever hair was found near a skull, it was Negro hair. Some of the skulls had great holes in them. The authorities said that at least some scraps of wood or metal would have been found with or amonng the bones, had they been interred in coffins. As they were not in a trench, their burial could not have been in consequence of an epidemic. So it all simmered down to one conclusion-they were bodies of Lalaurie slaves, buried thus in order that their manner of death should not become known."
-- "Ghost Stories of Old New Orleans" by Jeanne deLavigne, pub 1946 "The Haunted House of the Rue Royale" pp.248-258

"Believe it or leave it, there are ghosts in the French Quarter's famous haunted house at 1140 Royal St.

"Louise (Mrs. Harper) Richards, who shared an apartment with artist Zella Funck in the building while her home at 919 Gov. Nicholls was being restored, tells me 'many strange unaccountable things happened' during her residence there.

'Like what?'

'Well,' she replied, 'such things as the kitchen faucet suddenly started to run full force for no reason when no one was in the room. Sometimes the shower in the bathroom would do the same thing. And several times the front door we had bolted with two bolts would be found open.'"

"…During her residence with Mrs. Funck, Mrs. Richards said, 'Zella's ghosts were the prankish sort. I heard no moans or groans or dragging chains during the night. They just seemed to play all sorts of pranks on us.

'One day Mrs. E. S. Perkin's grandchild, Collier Perkins, and her little friend, Barbara Sproull, visited us to check on the ghosts and, sure enough, while we were across the room the door of the cupboard popped open. It had never done that before and it never happened again while I was there.'"
-- The States Item, March 7th, 1966.

"Zella Funck lives in the famous "Haunted House" at 1140 Royal St. 'My poltergeists are just playful,' she declares blithely. 'They're not around every day, but they do surprise visitors…'

"…The ghost, whom she says she has seen twice, is a romantic figure of a man. 'I've watched him for several minutes in a full-length mirror before he faded away. He's about 5'9", about 170 lbs, has a reddish clipped beard, and wears a creamy beige felt hat turned up slightly, with a cord around it.'"
-- The States Item, June 16, 1969
