Steeped in history and spirits, the Andrew Jackson Hotel in New Orleans is one of the top ten haunted places in Louisiana! A spotlight location featured on every haunted tour of the French Quarter, this is one hotel that will please every paranormal enthusiast!
The beautiful two-story building that stands now was built in 1890 but the history of the location begins much earlier. The original structure on the site was an all-boy boarding school, or orphanage. The second great fire of New Orleans in December of 1794 burned that building to the ground. Five young boys tragically died in the fire and many believe that their spirits still linger on the grounds.
The sound of children giggling and laughing is often heard in the courtyard after dark. They also have been seen in several different rooms, particularly rooms 208, 107 and 109. Shadow figures, full-bodied apparitions, heart wrenching EVPs (electronic voice phenomena), laughter, doors opening and closing, water turning on and off of its own volition, lights flickering, the sound of barefoot running, a sense of being watched, pulling the covers off sleeping guests and ice cold fingers tickling guests in their sleep—guests have had a multitude of experiences and captured tons of evidence that suggests that a majority of the hauntings in the hotel can be attributed to the mischievous boys lurking in the shadows.
There are also rumors that Andrew Jackson still walks the halls. After the Louisiana Purchase, the Federal Courthouse was built on the site. When the War of 1812 ended with the ratification of the Peace of Ghent—Andrew Jackson was taken to court due to his proclamation and enforcement of martial law. He arrested and imprisoned several people including a state legislator and the Judge who tried to have him released. The United States v. Major General Andrew Jackson was heard at the courthouse. Jackson was found in contempt of court and fined one thousand dollars. Maybe his spirit revisits the location due to the ungrateful nature of the court after he saved New Orleans from the British Navy!
You may be wakened in the night by a spirit watching your television or perhaps you’d like to visit with the spirit of the woman who seems to oversee the cleaning and running of the hotel even in death. She’s been known to even move furniture around! Or maybe you’ll run into the child who goes by the name Armond who some say was thrown from the second-floor balcony and occasionally shoves guests out of the bed. What exactly goes bump in the night at the Andrew Jackson Hotel? You should come and find out!
Nestled in the heart of the French Quarter, the Andrew Jackson Hotel was built in 1890 on a site that is steeped in the history of New Orleans. The ornate wrought-iron balconies and striking yellow brick structure radiates an aura that sings of the stories hidden within its walls. Tragedy and political scandal ignite the spiritual energy; urging those who have passed beyond the veil to whisper their secrets to people who are willing to listen.
After New Orleans was established in 1718, colonists flocked to the French Territory and brought with them prosperity and unfortunately, disease. The first case of Yellow Fever to strike Louisiana was in 1769 and soon the epidemics became recurring. The “Saffron Scourge” plagued many households throughout the summer months as mosquitos bred off the waters of the coast and fed off the people of the city. Age and gender affect the susceptibility to Yellow Fever and as a result, adult males were the most likely to succumb to the disease, leaving orphans and destitute families behind. In response to the growing need for the children, an all-boy boarding house was built in 1792 at the site of the Andrew Jackson Hotel.
1794 brought two hurricanes and the second great fire to New Orleans leaving decimation and destruction in their wakes. The fire in December of 1794 that destroyed 212 buildings, burned the boarding school to the ground and tragically five young boys lost their lives. Many believe that the boys’ spirits still linger about the hotel. The sound of laughter and giggling has been heard by several guests and staff members in the courtyard late at night. Full-bodied apparitions of young boys have been seen and captured on film and the goings on in Room 208 point to a mischievous young man. Pulling the covers off of guests and ticking them in their sleep, turning the water off and on in the night, the sound of bare feet running around the room, objects moving of their own volition, items disappearing and reappearing—these incidences are only the tip of the iceberg!
After the Louisiana Purchase in 1803, the new building erected on the site became a Federal Courthouse and soon after, New Orleans became an integral part in the success of the War of 1812. Battling the greatest naval power in the world, the future President Andrew Jackson led the United States to victory over Great Britain. The success required sacrifices not only of the armed forces but also of civilians. In December of 1814, General Jackson declared martial law on the citizens of New Orleans. No one was allowed to enter or leave the city. Considering that the people who populated New Orleans were typically French in origin and had recently been under Spanish rule—Jackson’s theater presented translation and other unique problems. The possibility that spies could easily hide within the population sparked a sense of nationalism that led the General to make this proclamation.
Despite his military accomplishments, Jackson suffered his critics. Louis Louaillier, a member of the Louisiana State Legislature, penned an anonymous article in the Louisiana Courier criticizing Jackson’s tactics. After identifying the author, Jackson had Louaillier imprisoned and explicitly warned that any one serving a writ of habeas corpus to free him would also be arrested. Federal District Court Judge Dominick Hall granted the motion of habeas corpus and, as good as his word, Andrew Jackson had him arrested for “aiding and abetting and exciting mutiny within my camp.”
When General Jackson received the notice that the peace of Ghent had been ratified and that the battle was surely over, he released all prisoners, lifted martial law and allowed the exiled to return to the city. United States v. Major General Andrew Jackson was brought to court at the now Andrew Jackson Hotel where Judge Hall presided. He found Jackson in contempt of court and fined him one thousand dollars. Some believe that the spirit of Andrew Jackson still haunts the corridors of the hotel—could he be visiting to demand that the people hear that he was justified in all of his actions?
The spirits that wander about the premises do not confine themselves to any particular room and have been witnessed and seen throughout the hotel. Mostly you’ll run into the children playing pranks or giggling and playing with one another. There is also the talk of a female spirit that continues to keep the place tidy and make certain everything is in the proper place—though she’s been known to rearrange the furniture as well!
Whenever you visit the Andrew Jackson Hotel there is one thing you may be certain of—you’re not sleeping alone!
