Experts in the paranormal say that there is a huge source of paranormal energy in Southwest Louisiana – some call it Eerie Calcasieu. The ghost tour takes users through the Historic Charpentier District and tells a variety of ghost stories, including the story of the haunted Calcasieu Courthouse and the story of Toni Jo Henry (the first and only execution of a female in the electric chair in Louisiana), which have been featured on The Travel Channel as one of the 10 Most Haunted Places.
Other sites along the ghost tour include the Bilbo Cemetery, the Lake Charles Civic Center, the Ramsey Mansion, the Bel House and the Reid House. For more information or to download the free historic app, visit http://www.visitlakecharles.org/apps.
