Tulane University architecture professor, Richard Campanella, eulogizes the LeBeau Plantation home, which burned to the ground last week after an alleged booze and pot-fueled ghosthunting expedition gone very wrong. "We viewed a room full of cast-iron railings from when the house was a country residence in the late 1800s, and spotted the armored peepholes from when it was a not-so-secret gambling club in the early 1900s. We saw the damage of a 1980s fire, and inspected the stabilization work done in 2004, which fortified the building against a half-dozen subsequent hurricanes." [NOLA.com]
