This Erie Mississippi Legend Is Sure To Send Chills Down Your Spine
Countless small towns across the country have some sort of local legend associated with them…and Mississippi is no exception. From tales of haunted sites to mysterious creatures, the Magnolia State has its fair share of lore. One of the most intriguing tales comes from the small town of Kosciusko and has to do with a heartbroken husband, a cemetery, and a statue that, at times, seems to come to life.
