Real Haunted House

Hangman’s Tree

New Orleans, Louisiana

During the antebellum period, a slave was caught in the heat of passion with a white female. Consequently, he was taken to an oak tree near Lake Pontchartrain and hanged. If one goes there late at night, he will hear the snapping of the rope and will see a shadow swinging back and forth against the tree.

I can honestly believe this story, i have met white men from Louisiana that is prejudiced against white women dating black men. Very sad for them to be raised with such sickening morals. It’s okay for them to date black women but when a beautiful white woman dates a black man it’s such jealously involved. It’s like they snap. They (the white man) want what does not want them but desires another. If I should go to this tree I would burn sage and release the spirit from his hurt and send him to the light.

I went there last night and someone made a little grave under the tree with a iron fence around it I guess for the man that was hung

Glad he’s dead. Maybe if a few more were hung from that tree, New Orleans wouldn’t be a crime filled **** hole.
