Marie Laveau's home site is on Rue St. Ann Street in New Orleans, Louisiana. Between 1839 and 1881 the famed Voodoo Queen lived in a house which once stood on this spot. Although little is known of her life, she was reportedly born in the French Quarter in 1801, of African, Native American, and French descent. She married Jacques Paris in 1819 and remained with him until his death in 1820. They had two daughters together. In the 1820's she began a relationship with Christophe Dominick Duminy de Glapion. With him she had three daughters, one of whom, Marie Euchariste Eloise, who would go on to become Marie II, a Voodoo queen in her own right. Laveau and Glapion lived together until his death in 1855. Although she was a known practitioner of Voodoo, the true extent of her powers is somewhat lost to time. During her life she was also confused at times with her daughter, who was also practicing locally. After her death in 1881 she was known to be seen by locals, and it is said that her ghost still walks the streets of New Orleans. Her family remained here in the home until 1895. Sometime before 1905 the home was destroyed and the current house erected. There is a marker on the front which notes her time here.
