1) Reynolds Cemetery, Jackson
Every year on the night of Nov. 21, people gather at the Reynolds Cemetery in Jackson to try to catch a glimpse of the spirits of Jacob Crouch and his daughter Eunice, who were brutally murdered in their sleep in 1883. Also killed were Eunice’s husband Henry and a friend, Moses Polley. The mass murder went down in history as Jackson’s most infamous unsolved mystery. To this day, the site attracts ghost hunters, who are trying to capture the essence of this haunted place.
