The story of this home’s haunting comes from Victor C. Klein’s book, “New Orleans Ghosts” (1996). The activity here was first reported in the early 1970s, when an owner decided to redo the basement. He hired a crew of workmen to complete the task, but they left early on the first day and refused to return – according to them, a ghostly figure, dressed as a seaman, was seen floating around the basement. Other weird things happened – items moved on their own, disembodied voices were heard – but after a while (and even a failed exorcism) the owner learned to live with the spirits. At least two later owners confirmed they experienced the same sort of activity, but they all seemed to agree whatever spirit lingered there wasn’t harmful or dangerous, just a bit playful.
