The Most Unique Jail In Louisiana Has A Haunting Backstory

Nine times out of ten, when you come across a building that stands out from the rest, there’s a story behind it. In Louisiana, that story may contain a ghost or two. That’s certainly the case with this one building in DeRidder, which is among the most unique architectural structures in the area with a ghostly past.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.

Tours are offered Monday – Friday at 10 a.m., 11 a.m., and 3 p.m. Check-in for tours across the street from the jail at the Beauregard Tourism Office. Have you ever taken a tour of the Gothic Jail? Let us know in the comments below.
