You can rent your very own haunted mansion in New Orleans for only $20,000 a month! And that’s only $1 per square foot. This 20,000-square-foot, 1853 mansion is haunted by Miss Josephine, a dedicated slave who stayed on even after the Civil War ended. In fact, she was so devoted that she remains long after her death, still taking care of the house. Her broom is heard sweeping and her lemon scent can be detected all over the mansion. Her apparition has been seen on the stairs as well as other places, and her presence has been reported to cause lights to turn on and off, doors to open and close by themselves, and the chandeliers to swing for over an hour.

This house has another claim to fame: It was used as a setting in Season 3 of “American Horror Story.”

  1. We went on a tour and myself and the tour guide notice this figure at the front door. I walked toward the left along the gate and it disappeared. When we went back in front of the gate it reappeared. It didn’t move then all the sudden it turned and took 3 steps away from door and disappeared.
