Take A Haunted History Virtual Tour Of New Orleans’ French QuarterBy RodneyHatfieldJr for Creepy
While many cities celebrate or revere the paranormal during certain events, like Halloween. There are several that have paranormal activity ingrained into their DNA. New Orleans, Louisiana, is one such place. Regularly referred to as the most haunted city in America, the historic city has a feel that few others can match.
A lot of this can be because of the above-ground graveyards and 18th Century mansions that litter the area, with the majority naturally having their individual creepy lore. However, that doesn’t mean there isn’t lore and hauntings that connect and intertwine many of them. Just look at the Yellow Fever Epidemic in the 19th Century. It led to the deaths of over 40,000 people in the city.
Many New Orleans locals, alongside the countless tourists to the city, believe a large number of ghosts come from this time. This doesn’t mean that the town’s creepy history ends there. In contrast, it has routinely been connected to Voodoo and occult behavior this dating back centuries.
Despite the city’s enduring popularity, few people get to efficiently absorb and experience much of this extensive history without spending thousands of dollars to travel to and stay in the city. Now, this doesn’t have to be the case. A new documentary highlights some of the creepier places in the town, alongside outlining some of the haunted site’s tragic backstory.
The documentary, which you can watch in full below, focuses solely on New Orleans’ French Quarter, which has routinely been seen as one of the more haunted areas of the city. Not being able to experience the historical sites in person isn’t exactly a drawback, as viewers will still be able to feel the creepy vibes associated with each of the buildings. If you’re looking for a practical reason to visit New Orleans, then this creepy history should be enough to draw in even the more hardcore paranormal fans.
