The Logan Mansion, a magnificent 1897 Queen Anne Victorian home, located at 725 Austin Place in Shreveport, is one of our haunted places, and this Saturday, visitors will be allowed to tour the home.
The Mansion is famous for spirit or ghost antics that may have something to do with the death of a little girl at the turn of the century. Theodore, a neighbor girl who was visiting the home fell to her death from an attic window. She may still be haunting the home as various people have seen her image in the window. But that’s not all; once a man left his crutch on the mantel, only to find it had been moved to a place near the sofa in the living room. Once, a music box started playing for no reason. A man who spent the night in the attic room awoke to find his cell phone had been tampered with. A photo was stored on the phone that he had not taken, and the apps were jumbled on the screen. There are many stories of ghost sightings and antics, and the owners Vicki Lebrune and her husband, Billy, will open their home on Saturday for visitors to tour. Vicki says “people who are paranormal sensitive feel things in this house”.
Louisiana Spirits, an investigative organization, spent the night in the home and recorded some sounds, but did not come up with substantiated evidence to declare the home haunted. Read their report here, and go take the tour to find out for yourself.
The home will be open Saturday, 29 October from 6 – 9 pm. Admission is $10. Call 318-459-2285 for more information.
