Spooky Homes of the Stars: Nicolas Cage
The LaLaurie Mansion, said to
be one of the most haunted houses in New Orleans, was owned by actor Nicolas
Cage from 2006 to 2009. This mansion's ghost stories start in the 1830s with
the LaLaurie family, who brutally abused slaves in the home for many generations.
After the family fled the city, the mansion remained unoccupied for many years,
with the few tenants reporting mysterious screams and strange noises. Others
claimed that they were strangled in the night by an invisible force, or saw
shackled servants roaming the halls.
