Not surprisingly, it’s garnered an eerie reputation over the years as one of the creepiest abandoned places in Mississippi. It’s believed to be haunted by the ghosts of two young girls, one of whom died in the hospital when she was accidentally given too much anesthesia.

What are some other creepy places in Mississippi?

When it comes to creepy places in Mississippi, City Cemetery in Kosciusko definitely fits the bill. It’s not actually the cemetery that’s creepy, but a specific statue within the cemetery. The statue of Laura Kelly was commissioned in the late 1800s, by Mr. Kelly, Laura’s husband. Extremely distraught over his wife’s death, he wanted a statue in her likeness. He then added a third floor to his home, which wasn’t far from the cemetery, so that he could view the statue of his beloved. Over the years, visitors to the cemetery have claimed that the statue of Laura Kelly appears to be weeping.
