As Halloween approaches, several groups have announced that they will will be offering haunted tours of historic sites in Shreveport, Louisiana during the 2014 Halloween season.

Guided tours exploring the house will begin every 20 minutes, 6-9 p.m. Admission is $10 and tours last approximately one hour. Reservations are not necessary.

“This isn’t a staged tour, there aren’t people jumping out at you or anything like that,” said Logan Mansion owner Vicki Lebrun, who has owned the historic mansion since 2005. “Guests will get a tour of the entire house, and they’ll hear stories about the haunting that we have here.”

Built in 1897, the Victorian-style mansion has long been rumored to be haunted by the spirit of a young girl who is said to have fallen from an upstairs window. During haunted tours at the Logan Mansion, guests will see all 17 rooms of the mansion as well as the 2,000-square-foot attic, hearing ghost stories along the way.
