Paranormal Tour Inside St Vincent's Infant Asylum
St Vincent's Infant Asylum (orphanage) was built in 1861 with the aid of Federal Troops occupying the City. With the Civil War and Yellow Fever epidemic running rampant across the United States, especially in New Orleans, the death toll steadily climbed and more and more children were left behind as orphans and many succumbed to the illness themselves.
Join investigators from The Paranormal Society of New Orleans in this unique opportunity to go hands on with EMF meters, Rem Pods and other equipment to see if you can make contact with the children.
This property is scheduled for a full renovation in mid 2018 - this is a limited opportunity to enjoy St Vincent's as she stands in her original state.
The home features stunning architecture. Many photos of the St Vincent's children line the walls. In addition, on top of the carriage house is a bell tower with a unique sculpture hanging from it, Designed by sculptor Thomas Randolph Morrison, it is called “New Orleans Gargoyle” and consists of a demonic- looking creature holding a severed head. There are numerous bronze sculptures throughout the house that are also the work of Morrison.
