One legendary person in history that has been fascinating to us is the Count of St. Germain. This was a man who not only claimed to be hundreds of years old, seemingly finding the secret to eternal youth via alchemy, but sightings and stories about him throughout the centuries seem to indicate that he may have been telling the truth. Who was this man? Was he even a Count? Could he have been a time traveler? Was he a vampire and that is why he never seemed to age? Join us as we explore the legend of the Count of St. Germain. The Moment in Oddity features The Iceman Curse and This Month in History features Mary, Queen of Scots beheaded.
We had just one night in New Orleans on a recent road trip and we made the most of it since it was Kelly’s first time here. We booked a room at the Andrew Jackson Hotel, had dinner at the Napoleon House – one of America’s most famous bars – and took in a couple of the local creepy stores before heading on a ghost tour with Haunted History Tours. Join us as we share the history and haunts of the Andrew Jackson Hotel and Napoleon House. The Moment in Oddity was suggested by Scott Booker and features Andrew Jackson’s swearing parrot and This Month in History features sweet rationing ending in Britain.
Storyville was about two things: women and music. This area was a famous red-light district in New Orleans that would give birth to jazz. Today, it no longer exists, but its legacy does and the place it holds in New Orleans’ history is significant. Brothels were plentiful in this city of vice and some of these structures still stand today. The lady bosses of these establishments are some of the most famous people in New Orleans’ history and some of them still have a hold on the city as the subjects of ghost stories. Join us as we explore the history and hauntings of New Orleans’ Brothels!The Moment in Oddity features a family making a Masonic Temple their home and This Month in History features the Yorkshire Ripper confessing.
Jackson Square is a magnet for visitors to New Orleans. Centuries of history are represented in the square and this history includes shipping, trade, artists colony, pirates, war and executions. The beautiful St. Louis Cathedral is a popular subject for photographers and Cafe du Monde is a must stop for some world famous beignets. New Orleans is considered one of the most haunted cities in the world, so it should come as no surprise that this iconic area of this historic city is home to many ghosts stories.
