Levee House Café

You are here Home  > Restaurants and Bars >  Levee House Café

The Levee House, built around 1826 as a dry goods store for merchant Dudley Woodbridge, later became La Belle Hotel and was rumored to have been a brothel at some time in its history. Its legend says that a brothel employee and a man who was visiting her were both shot and killed by the man’s disgruntled son, who was upset at the way the man was disrespecting his family. His death didn’t stop the man from visiting the brothel, however. His ghost has been seen coming into the back entrance in the wee hours of the morning.
