A Haunted House In Shreveport

Posted: Updated:

Once upon a time in the early 1900's a young girl fell to her death from the 3rd story attic of a 17-room Shreveport house on Austin Street. It's known to many as the Logan Mansion.

Ever since her tragic fall in , people have seen some strange things happen in and around the large Victorian styled home.

The current home owners are Billy & Vicki LeBrun and they say it is haunted.

"It's kind of hard to believe sometimes and we were disbelieving when we moved in, but to many things have happened over the years we have something going on here," says Vicki LeBrun.

Right now the house, built in 1897, is all decked out for Halloween with scary life sized skeletons and big spiders, but they are no match for some of the eerie occurrences witnesses have seen over the decades. Vicki says a member of the Shreveport tourism bureau saw a ghost in the 3rd story attic window about two years ago. Vicki says numerous orbs have showed up in photographs taken in the attic and in other places in the house. Paranormal experts say they are supposed to be a manifestation of a spirit or ghost.

Vicki says one of the things that caused them to believe that there are ghost in the house, happened one eerie morning. She says her husband was about to leave for work at 5:30am when a wind up music box sitting in the foyer started playing all by itself.

The mansion's original owners were Lafayette Robert Logan and his wife Lavinia. Mr. Logan was a beer and ice manufacturer. Over the years the house has been used as a boarding house, church and community center -- even a radio station. KCOZ FM or "COZY".

Legend has that the girl who fell from the mansion was a young girl named Theodora Hunt. She lived across the street from the Logan Mansion.
