THE HAUNTED HOTEL NOLA
Built in 1829, the property located at 623 Ursulines is home to nearly a dozen murders in the past 200 years.
Once a part of the historic Ursuline Convent, the property at 623 Ursulines has long since been home to many chilling tales. After the property was sold in 1911, a string of famous murders was reported happening across the greater city of New Orleans.
Once predicted as mafia-related slayings, it seems that a strange occurrence tied the murders together: all the victims of the murders were axed to death. And not only this but the murder weapon of choice, an axe covered in the victim’s blood, was left behind as a memento from the gruesome killer.
Now that the mafia wasn’t to blame, was this the work of the “Axe Man” that many of the people of New Orleans learned to call by name in hushed whispers? With no whereabouts of the Axe Man or other suspected killers tied to the cases of these mysterious murders, an investigation took place to detect the possibility of paranormal activity at the property.
New Orleans, and the French Quarter, in particular, is well-known for its long history with all things macabre and supernatural, but even this was shocking to the psychic professionals working on the case.
Off in a corner of the property, the detection of paranormal activity was off the charts in one particular corner of the courtyard. Could this be where the Axe Man was hiding from the authorities?
To this day, the presence of the Axe Man is routinely felt on the patio by many of the hotel’s visitors, and not only this, but his identity still remains unknown.
The Ghosts of Haunted Hotel NOLA
This place is so haunted, with paranormal activity so powerful to all that step foot on its grounds, it’s most certainly earned its name as the “Haunted” Hotel of New Orleans.
Countless guests have reported the presence of spirits, specifically Maime, who was the former owner of this once private residence. Maime swore to all that she would never leave, and as it turns out…she never did.
The former property owner reportedly died in her bedroom, and the guests who are bold enough to stay in this same room regularly report creepy paranormal activity, for Maime is not a ghost that remains to move about unnoticed…she demands her presence be felt.
Guests of Maime’s room have reported that they’ve returned to their rooms after being away to find pillows ruffled as if someone–or something–has been resting on the bed. And not only this, the light in the bedroom window has been reported by countless visitors to have turned on and off abruptly, out of nowhere, at all hours of the night.
Along with Maime’s presence, multiple EVP recordings have captured the sounds of eerie, echoing voices, and even alarming groans. But one thing is certain, these are definitely the sounds of human voices begging to be heard.
