Many years ago a rich businessman, George Gracey in New Orleans and his beautiful fiancée, Emily Cavanaugh happened upon the mansion and fell in love with it. When they married they held the wedding on the lawn in late afternoon. The reception followed inside the mansion. 

During the evening festivities Emily suggested they should all play hide-and-seek. While looking for a place to hide, the bride found her way to the attic where she came upon an empty trunk. She climbed inside the trunk and closed the lid. 

Madame Leota hated Emily, so when the lid to the trunk closed Leota locked it so there was no escape. The young woman suffocated to death. 

After hours and hours of searching, the wedding party finally found her lifeless body. Hours later, after everyone else had left, the husband in his grief hanged himself in the attic (now known as the stretch room). Over the years the entire house became haunted with ghosts of all types and descriptions, 999 in all. Legend has it that the brides wedding ring can be seen embedded in a brick near the exit to what is now the Walt Disney World Haunted Mansion ride
