The 1850's era Greek Revival structure was once home to the prolific novelist Anne Rice. She set her 1990 novel "The Witching Hour" there – populating the house with the Mayfair family, a clan of male and female witches.
Rice packed up and moved from New Orleans to the West Coast several years ago, but her former haunts are still must-see stops for tourists on several of the popular "haunted city" tours. Many of her dozens of novels, including the best selling Vampire Chronicles series are set in The Crescent City.
Her former mansion comes complete with five bedrooms, six full and two half baths, an elevator, guest house, staff house and fish pond. Check out the realtor's link here.
