The Beauregard-Keyes house in the New Orleans French Quarter has a reputation that is known to be very haunted.

Historically Known to be haunted The Beauregard-Keyes House, was built in 1826 for wealthy auctioneer Joseph LeCarpentier. It is a fine example of a raised, center-hall house. It derives it's name from two of its former residents, Confederate General Pierre Gustave Toutant (P.G.T.) Beauregard and author Frances Parkinson Keyes.

Possibly rent this House? I have even had calls from people wanting to buy a genuine haunted house.

 

 

The Beauregard-Keyes house is also well known as the sight of a haunted bloody mafia massacre. It has been said that in the beautifully hedge garden, you can smell fresh gunpowder, and you can hear shots being fired while in the house from the garden. Many say they have seen strange shadows and figures moving, running madly around the garden fountain in their eternal dance of death.

General Beauregard and his family lived in the home from 1866 to 1868 while he was president of the New Orleans, Jackson, and Great Northern Railroad.

Mrs. Keyes used the home as her winter residence for 25 years, where she wrote many of her books including Dinner at Antoine’s, The Chess Players, Madame Castel’s Lodger, and Blue Camellia.

In a house as old as the Beauregard-Keyes House, you know there'd be a ghost or two haunting it. Aside from a few run-of-the-mill vaporous presences, Orbs and sounds the Beauregard-Keyes House, located at 1113 Chartres St., claim some that one of the city's more spectacular haunting's occurs here in the early morning hours.

Many supernatural sightings revolve around the mansion's most auspicious resident. Some of the local folks say that this haunted Creole mansion comes alive in gory battle of warfare, when a supernatural version of the Battle of Shiloh rages in the main hall. It has been said that "Men with mangled limbs and blown-away faces swirl in a confused dance of death," wrote Victor C. Klein in his 1996 book New Orleans Ghosts. "Horses and mules appear and are slaughtered by grapeshot and cannon. The pungent smell of blood and decay permeates the restless atmosphere."

On view also are Mrs. Keyes’ collections of more than 200 antique haunted dolls and 87 teapots. Many investigators have photographed ghostly mist and the haunted Dolls moving in the pictures randomly.
Mystery mist fills many photos. 200 antique haunted dolls and 87 teapots. Do you have any explanations?

 

 

Paul Munni, who was a world-class chess master, he as it is said to have went insane while residing in the beautiful home. In his insanity, Munni ran naked from this house, and on to Ursaline Street with an axe, looking to kill anyone he would find. It is said on the tour that he liked to play the piano. It is the piano, and his screaming that can be heard ghostly echoing in the great silent hall and darkened rooms late into the night.

The Beauregard-Keyes house is also well known as the sight of a haunted bloody mafia massacre. It has been said that in the beautifully hedge garden, you can smell fresh gunpowder, and you can hear shots being fired while in the house from the garden. Many say they have seen strange shadows and figures moving, running madly around the garden fountain in their eternal dance of death.

One strange haunted tale tells of Paul Munni, a world-class chess master. Munni was said to have went insane while living in the beautiful home. In his crazed wild insanity, Munni ran naked from the house, to Ursaline Street with an large axe, He was looking to kill anyone he would find. And the first to cross his path would die. The police subdued him and that's where the tale ends.

It is said on many ghost tour guides of New Orleans that he liked to play the piano. late in the night what some say can be heard is the piano, and his screaming. Many locals and Tourist have heard this only to ask a passerby who lives there? And just to be told that what can be heard ghostly echoing in the great silent hall and darkened rooms late into the night, or the sounds of a genuine New Orleans Ghost.

"This is a very active haunting," Well Known Psychic investigator/Ghost hunter Mickey of Miami says " you can photograph Orbs and anomalous vapors." "The windows will rattle as if a hurricane is blasting away, even on a calm sunny day. Certainly you'll hear more then the floor creak with haunted steps. But mostly you feel like someone is with you. Touching you, watching you.. But you look around and no one's there. I have found 7 ghost, no evil haunted spirits of the sinister insane variety, says Mickey ." But this truly haunted house does shelter a few unique "ghost animals."

 

In this haunted ghost Photo of an animal stirs in the fire place. What do you think it is a cat or dogs Ghost? I see a dog but I could be wrong. But it is a ghost as far as I am concerned.
Every one says it is a cat or a dogs ghost in the Fire Place opening. I see the face of a Cocker Spaniel looking at me . Psychic Mickey of Miami told me there are two dogs in this Ghost Photo. What do you see?

One animal entity, Mickey says, is a white large cat's ghost. I also believe a few small ghost dogs haunt the rooms. Of the dogs, says Mickey, one is the restless spirit of "Lucky," a cocker-spaniel owned by the house's other auspicious resident, novelist Frances Parkinson Keyes. I was told that a few days after Keyes died in 1970, Lucky, pining for her master, passed away as well. But some aspect of the dog's spirit remains in Keyes' apartment to this day. The Others I think Might go back many years to it's first occupants. General Pierre Gustave Toutant (P.G.T.) Beauregard's family pets is what I trace the others to. I feel they may have been his wifes, or children's pets.

The home features twin curved staircases, leading to a Tuscan portico. Inside, the visitor finds a large parlor and ballroom, a rectangular dining room leading to a porch and many fine architectural details.

The Beauregard Chamber is furnished with original furnishings used by the General and his family. Some say they have witnessed the bed chambers ghost and have the Generals Ghost Photos to prove it.

The elegant walled garden, is solely maintained by the Garden Study Club of New Orleans, It features a fine cast-iron fountain and well trimmed boxwood hedges. The haunted garden’s design duplicates the original 1865 plans. On view also are Mrs. Keyes’ collections of more than 200 antique haunted dolls and 87 teapots. Many investigators have photographed ghostly mist and the haunted Dolls moving in the pictures randomly.

Mrs. Keyes’ extensive collections of delicate fans and fascinating folk costumes are also on exhibit. A gift shop on the premises sells a number of Mrs. Keyes’ well cherished books.

The Beauregard-Keyes House- Patrons to the museum have reported that after closing one evening they stayed to take photos of the house. When the photos were developed there were some mysterious unexplainable images in them. In the pictures there appears to be two civil war era soldiers standing in front of the window looking out. The guests were sure that no other people were in the museum at the time that the photos were taken. This former hotel was also the site of a mafia massacre. It is said that at times you can smell gunpowder and hear gunshots in the garden area of the hotel.
