Synopsis >

TAPS returns to New Orleans to investigate an historic sugar plantation. Jacques Telesphore, the businessman who built the house, died of tuberculosis in 1848. His family could not maintain his business holdings and had to sell their property in 1866. Several movies have been filmed at the Plantation, including “Interview With the Vampire.” Staff and volunteers have reported frequent activity at the plantation for years. Some tour guides hear horse drawn carriages coming up the drive, even accompanied by a cloud of dust moving towards the house—but nothing is there. In one room, a house manager with several other staff members saw a figure matching the description of the last resident owner of Oak Alley in the window. The lights were on after everything had been shut off. Frightened, they drove away. Stopping after a distance, they looked back to see the lights off and all quiet. During a tour, a candlestick flew across the room in full view of 35 tourists.
