The ghost of Charles Johnson is said to haunt the Lanaux Mansion in New Orleans, LA.

The ghost of a man in a black morning coat is often seen pacing the hallways at the haunted Lanaux Mansion.

The Lanaux Mansion currently functions as a bed a breakfast. The 11,000 square foot building was constructed by Charles Andrew Johnson. As a bachelor, he dreamed of one day having a family, though he never achieved this dream. He was a very private man.

When Charles Johnson died, he bequeathed his beautiful mansion to Marie Andry Lanaux, his business partner’s daughter. Some people believe that he loved Marie in silence. The Mansion is named after her.

In the late 1980’s Ruth Bodenheimer restored the building to its original state.
