6. John’s Bayou Road (Vancleave)
Over the years, several car accidents have occurred in almost the exact same location on this road, with most survivors reporting the same series of events.

The man, who reportedly committed suicide in the home, can still be heard walking around in the bedroom in which he took his life. While it is not known exactly how the female spirit is linked to the home, she started appearing once an antique photo was placed in the home.
8. Lyric Theatre (201 N Broadway St, Tupelo)
In the late 1930s, the city of Tupelo was struck by a deadly tornado. Being one of only two large buildings left standing, the Lyric Theater served as a makeshift hospital used to treat the injured. Unfortunately, several residents lost their lives in the theater and, as it turns out, some of the victims are still lingering. One spirit in particular, Antoine, has been known to move things around and, on several occasions, has been heard humming as he moves about the theater.
9. Deer Island (near Biloxi)
This 400-acre island is the site of not one, but two, of the state’s most mysterious entities. Both ghosts were documented for the first time in 1922. According to records, two fishermen who were camping on the island were chased by a headless skeleton. This same story was repeated by several others, leading to the entity being deemed the "Ghost of Deer Island."
Throughout the years, there were reports of the island being afflicted by another entity – a supernatural blue light known as "Firewater Ghost." The mysterious light has been spotted moving across the bay between Biloxi and Ocean Springs long before the invention of electricity. Many believe the light is some type of ghostly guard, patrolling the area with a lantern in his hand.
10. Beauvoir (2244 Beach Blvd, Biloxi)
Since this historic home was opened for touring in 1941, several visitors have found something unusual in the photos taken during their time at Beauvoir. Dozens of photos appear to have apparitions in the background. Jefferson Davis, along with his wife and daughter, has been caught on film. Beauvoir wasn’t officially investigated by a paranormal team until 2014. The group spent the night in the home, at which time several occurrences were caught on film and in recordings.
