The History

Built in the early 1800s, the Bienville House has had many colorful uses over the years. In its very beginning, the location was occupied by Planters Rice Mills and served as a large mill complex. Later, the property became the home of Thompson's Rice Mill and Southern Syrup Manufacturing, where it operated for several years. 

In 1835, the building was completely remodeled and opened as the North American Hotel, becoming one of the most beautiful places to stay. Unfortunately, the hotel was operated for two years, and in 1837 was sold to become a small French Quarter Hotel for boarders and a firehouse. 

Years later, the building would then be turned into the Royal Bienville, which consisted of twenty luxury apartments and was the starting point for Decatur's revitalization. By the 1970s, the hotel had expanded and was ideal for traveling motorists driving through the city, need a quality place to stay. In 1972, the hotel was purchased by the Monteleone family and they have converted it into the present day Bienville House.

The Hauntings

This hotel hosts many who have remained here after their mortal death. There is a female ghost known to stare at you while you sleep. Other phantoms walk the halls and are seen passing through the walls. 

It is uncertain as to the source of these ghostly occupants of the Bienville House. Could they be residual entities from its many years as various hotels or even a former worker from its milling days?
