What could be more fun than touring a haunted house? In downtown Shreveport near Oakland Cemetery there's the Logan Mansion at 725 Austin Place owned by Vicki and Billy LeBrun and it's open for tours every Friday.
The home has been covered in the local media a couple of times. One feature included a story by Noma Fowler-Sandlin along with a stunning photo spread from the folks at The Forum, the other was a story on KSLA on a paranormal investigation done in the house by the folks at Louisiana Spirits Paranormal Investigations.
RRBJ took the tour in March 2007. Is there a ghost in the house? Let's just say our camera acted weird during the visit and then once we uploaded our photos we started having wicked bad computer problems. Our favorite part of the house? Getting to explore the huge attic is definitely worth the ten dollar admission price.
"I found bliss early. It was reading or thinking in the spread out trunk of a pink flowered mimosa tree in our front yard.
I made my freest art back then. When I was a little kid alone in my room, I danced to music from a tiny record player. I had a built up platform in the bottom of my closet, so I would push the clothes back on either side and dance away in funky costumes I found around the house. Now when I create art, I am seeking to go back to my bliss." Usher May 24, 2010
