The Flirty Ghost of the Bourbon Orleans Hotel

Bourbon hotel in new orleans

Ghosts just haunt to have fun!

I recently made a trip to New Orleans and had a great time and saw a lot of things outside the normal.  Apparently this is pretty normal for New Orleans so I brought back a few ghost stories for you.   I  was in the ballroom of the Bourbon Orleans and definitely prickled with a presence.  Alas  am a brunette so I didn’t get a smooch but I could tell the place was very active.

 

The Bourbon Orleans hotel was originally two separate buildings, the Grand Ballroom and the Orleans theater built in 1817.  In fact the left staircase is original to the ballroom and the right was added in 1966.  These structures were among the most famous in the Southeast, both venues hosted most the area’s major social events and were designed to allow patrons to flow from the theater to the ballroom which featured great galas after show.

 

Among other significant historical events the the Grand Ballroom is where Andrew Jackson announced his candidacy for president in 1829.  It was also the setting for some of the first Quadroon Balls.  Where Mulatto mothers would present their daughters in society in the hopes of placing them as mistresses of wealthy frenchmen.

 

(Quadroon referes to the racial mixture of the ladies, it was a classification system developed by the Catholic Church when people started inter marrying and mixing with the native populations in the new world.  Initially it had over 22 classifications of mixtures but by this time in new orleans it meant a person of darker complected skin usually with some african descent, these were considered the most desirable women in all of New Orleans. )

 

Later, the Ballroom was also used as an elegant gambling house, the only place in the city were gentlemen could bring their mistresses to socialize.  Many duels were fought over the hand of beautiful young woman or the disputed hand of poker in the garden of St. Anthony just down the street behind the St. Louis Cathedral.

 

One prevalent ghost haunting the Ballroom is a suave young man who enjoys entertaining the ladies.  Besides fluttering curtains and spinning crystals in the chandeliers he has been known to sneak up behind unsuspecting female guests and kiss or caress them lightly on the neck.  Incidentally, the ghost seems to prefer blonds.
