Legend has it that in the 1800s, in an attempt to help populate the then somewhat seedy French Quarter with more educated, well bred denizens, French families were enticed to send their daughters here to marry. These families were much misled to believe handsome deserving gentlemen were waiting here for them. The nuns of the Ursuline convent intercepted the girls at their arrival and put them up at the convent. The girls had arrived with their trousseau which were shaped unusually very much like traditional coffins. So mockingly, the girls acquired the name of casket girls. Their trousseau were placed in the third floor attic of the convent, and were not retrieved until a proper suitor was found for each girl. When the trousseau were retrieved they were mysteriously found empty. Superstitious individuals of the time claimed that the girls had smuggled vampires here to the French Quarter.

Well, that's the legend but if this is just a legend, then why does the convent to this day seal each upstairs window with 8000 blessed screws? And every so often one of the windows will shoot open for no apparent reason, and immediately the convent once again seals it shut.

On St. Germaine, down rue Royal, at Ursuline, there sits the former home of Jacques St. Germaine. St. Germaine, moved to New Orleans from France in 1903 and only occupied the home for a short time. It is said that during his time here he attacked and bit a young woman in his home, after luring her there for a glass of wine. She was able to escape however, and make it to the local authorities. St. Germaine mysteriously disappeared. However, the authorities upon entering his lair, found a collection of wine bottles, which they later found to be filled with a combination of wine and human blood. Some say St. Germaine is still alive today, and visits the French Quarter occasionally.
