Tour one of the most haunted mansions in Shreveport this October. The Logan Mansion, built in 1897 and known for some notable ghosts, will be opening our doors to the public for a bit of a fright full tour several days and nights in October. This will be an interactive experience so if you are prone to be scared of spirits you might want to take a pass as we can not guarantee who you may run into while walking through the basement, the first and second floor of the mansion, or the very active attic. Rumor has it that there is also a dog ghost who likes to stay in the creepy library keeping guard over the property. So far, no one has been bit.
The ticket price includes appetizers on the first floor, one drink of your choice, and the opportunity of a lifetime to experience the mansion in a guided tour. You will not know what lurks behind every door until you enter. Click here to learn more.
