Beauregard-Keyes House

This is one of those places that everyone has the same haunted story to tell: The crazy chess champion Paul Munni who lived there and ran through the streets of New Orleans with an axe. A GREAT story. Except it’s wrong in every detail from the name of the chess champion (Paul Morphy) and the fact that he never ran through the streets with an axe. But once again, we shouldn’t let the facts get in the way of a great ghost story. The Beauregard-Keyes House may be haunted and it may not be haunted, but proceed with caution…
