      Stop At: The Haunted Hotel, 623 Ursulines Ave, New Orleans, LA 70116, USA

      Built in 1829, the Hotel has been home to nearly a dozen murders in the last 200 years. Reports of being haunted initially dated back to 1918, when New Orleans’ infamous serial killer, The Axeman, left a bloody trail through the city, becoming one of the most notorious serial killers of the 20th Century. To this day, his identity remains unknown. Largely targeting the Italian population in New Orleans, confirmed reports have verified that The Axeman lived in the Hotel during the murders. Renting one of the back rooms in the slave quarters, The Axeman was the handyman of the property and led a very unassuming life.

      Stop At: Andrew Jackson Hotel®, a French Quarter Inns® hotel, 919 Royal St, New Orleans, LA 70116, USA

      The grounds of the Andrew Jackson Hotel have seen its fair share of history and tragedy. The site was originally a boarding school and orphanage for boys who had lost their parents to Yellow Fever, opening its doors in 1792 by the Spanish Colonial Government. The fires that consumed much of New Orleans in 1794 also laid rest to the boarding school with five young boys inside. After the fire, a U.S. Federal Courthouse was almost immediately built and remained there until before the turn of the 20th Century, where General Andrew Jackson, who later became the seventh U.S. president, was held in contempt of court and charged with obstruction of justice.
