This short block of Ursaline Avenue, located between Royal and Bourbon Streets is said to be haunted by “The Sausage Ghost’, with 4 murders taking place between 3 homes all within 4 houses apart. It started with Hans Mueller in the 1800’s, with the second murder in the 1920’s and the last murder in 2002. All three murderers were either butchers or worked in the meat/deli industry and all claim to have seen a mysterious spirit or figure who told them to commit the murders.

Guests report hearing the cranking of metal and chains…almost as if a ghostly pulley system is transferring goods and supplies from the third floor to the bakery down below. Guests have also heard voices and footsteps outside of rooms, and when doors are opened, are greeted to a strange mist or by an empty hallway. The most eerie guest complaint was the report of bloody handprints being found in the room.
