The Beauregard-Keyes house was built in the 1820s. During the civil war, general P.T. Beauregard’s troops were sometimes brought here to recuperate or die after sustaining wounds during the grueling battle of New Orleans. Over the years, there have been sightings of troops’ spirits lingering in the hallways and the smell of decaying flesh and gunpowder wafting through the house. It was a very strange and beautiful place…

.

The living room – Even though it was initially stuffy in the house, certain rooms were freezing. Some people say these cold spots are a sign of paranormal activity

.

P.T.’s Wife who died in childbirth (their child also died giving birth to Beauregard’s granddaughter Lauri).
