This ‘haunted’ Louisiana mansion is being given away for FREE to anybody brave enough to live in it

A “HAUNTED” Louisiana mansion compared to the Amityville Horror house is being given away for free to anybody brave enough to live in it.

But its listing has prompted people to share spooky memories of the property, including one ex-resident who creepily claims her great-granny’s spirit still stirs the pot in the kitchen.

The four-bedroom, three bathroom house in Youngsville was built in the 1930s.

But its spine-chilling reputation is seemingly throwing a spanner in its current owners’ attempt to get rid of it, despite trying to give it away.

McLain Investments’ co-owner Sylvia McLain shared three snaps of the house on Facebook to convince a suitor to move it and restore it so they could build a new property on the land.

However, numerous ex-residents and visitors replied, revealing their spooky experiences in the house.

Former resident Dawn Vallot DeClout claims the ghoul that occupies the house is her own great grandmother Adele, a 4ft 9in woman who lived to about 90 and favored being in the kitchen.

Dawn’s family owned the 160-acre plot the house was built on from 1860 for more than 100 years, and she lived there for a year in 1981.

She said: “There is a spirit and her name is Adele… my great grandmother.”

Her grandparents built and owned the house by the side of the family’s plantation and her great-grandmother lived there most of her life until she died in the front room in 1967.

Dawn, whose family moved out in the 1980s, said: “We believe [Adele] is the ghost, but she’s not menacing at all.

“She was always digging in the pots, like when you have something on the stove and someone goes and looks in the pot and stirs it around.

“She was well-known for that, and so when we lived there, we used to hear her all the time jangling the pots when we had something on the stove.

“You could hear somebody picking up the lid but there was nobody in the kitchen.”

Estate agent Sylvia went to the same school as Dawn and grew up around six miles from the house.

Sylvia, 63, said: “I don’t know if it’s haunted, but I do know about all the rumors surrounding the house.

“I am aware there’s a lot of talk about the house being haunted.

“Dawn and her brother always tell the story that their great-grandmother would stir the pot while they were playing cards in the living room.

“And then the girl that lived in it who was the last tenant – everybody called her ‘gypsy’ because she believed in the spirits and all that stuff.

“The previous tenant even told us she had somebody come in and check for spirits.”

Locals comparing the house to the ‘Amityville Horror house’ isn’t making it easy for Sylvia to off-load the home.

Multiple potential new owners appeared to suggest it to their pals, only for them to decline and point out that it was ‘haunted’.

Gary Alleman said on social media: “Yes it is [haunted]. I experienced three things there that could not be explained and my friend that lived there had more than that.”

Another commented: “I knew someone who rented it. I’ve been in it.

“It is a lot less ‘antique’ than you’d expect. More like someone updated it in the ’60s.

“Did have a lot of weird noises in the ceilings and walls though!”

Mellissa Potopea added: “Most likely the haunting will stay attached to the land and whoever lives in the new home they build will deal with it.”
