The LeBeau Plantation existed in Arabi, Louisiana. It was built as a private residence by Francois LeBeau in 1854. Francois Barthelemy LeBeau bought the land in 1851 and the demolished the house that was already on the property. Though LeBeau died the year that the plantation house was complete, his widow Sylvanie Fuselier lived in the home until her death in 1879.
Between the 1920s and the 1940s, the LeBeau Plantation was known as the Cardone Hotel. On Thursday, June 26, 1986, the LeBeau Plantation was a victim of arson. In the early morning hours of Friday, November 22, 2013, the LeBeau Plantation, one of the largest plantations south of New Orleans, was burned to the ground by seven men, ranging in age from 17 to 31. Reportedly, the men, aggravated by unsuccessful attempts to find ghosts, decided to set fire to the mansion.
