Historic Ghost Tours

We are continually working to connect our past residents to the present, even if they are long dead. However, sometimes the dead try to make first contact. We will be hosting historic ghost tours every Saturday evening during October, to share the history of the town and how the Louisianans of old remain with us.

It is $25.00 per person with all proceeds going to enhance the beauty and history of Louisiana. Please follow one of the links below to register. You must register ahead of time. Register soon! Spots are limited!
