The Lanaux Mansion
New Orleans, Louisiana
The mansion was built after the Civil War by wealthy Connecticut attorney Charles Andrew Johnson, who left it to his goddaughter, Marie Andry. When Marie married local businessman George Lanaux, it became known as the Lanaux Mansion.
Prior to its construction, the area where it now stands was a major center of the American slave trade. The movie 12 Years a Slave chronicles the fate of Solomon Northup, who was kidnapped and sold at auction just steps from here in 1841.
The house has appeared in the films Cat People starring Natassja Kinski in 1982 and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button starring Brad Pitt in 2008; cooking shows and dinner parties hosted by celebrity chefs John Folse and Paul Prudhomme; the show If Walls Could Talk on HGTV; and even a paranormal ghost-hunting show or two. Oh, and we’re also listed in the Ghost Hunter’s Guide to New Orleans and on several of those “Most Haunted Places” lists as well, but don’t let that scare you away.
A New Orleans landmark since 1879
The Lanaux Mansion is a living museum and popular bed & breakfast in New Orleans, Louisiana for nearly 40 years. The beautiful historic mansion boasts 7 suite options.
