Long Description:
Excerpt from the New Orleans City Guide 1938: "The Old Courthouse, 919 Royal Street. This is the site of the old courthouse in which General Andrew Jackson was fined $1000 for contempt of court, shortly after he had defeated the British army at the Battle of New Orleans. The original building was a small one-story structure with a red Spanish tile roof.

---

The federal court house was demolished in 1888, and the present two story brick building was constructed. It is now the Andrew Jackson Hotel.

"The Andrew Jachson Hotel is said to be at the top of the list for the most-haunted spots in all of New Orleans. Originally home to a boarding school and orphanage for young boys who lost their parents to Yellow Fever, fires consumed the building with young boys inside. Hotel employees and guests have seen, heard or felt ghosts on the premises. Some of these spirits have allegedly pushed people out of their beds, ruffled pillows and can be heard laughing sometimes in the courtyard. Many believe these are the young boys who perished in the terrible fire." (visit link)
