The Story Behind This Ghost Town Cemetery In Mississippi Will Chill You To The Bone

Head about 30 miles northeast of Natchez and you’ll find Rodney – one of Mississippi’s most notorious ghost towns. At one time, Rodney was destined for big things; however, a series of unfortunate events completely changed its fate. Today, the eerily quiet town is home to just a few dilapidated buildings and one desolate cemetery that will chill you to the bone. Take a look:

Brave enough to explore this cemetery? Below are directions to Rodney as posted on the Historic Rodney, Ms. Facebook Page:

“From Hwy 61, take the Alcorn State University exit to hwy 552 West. Go about 3 miles until you see a turning lane to turn left. Take that turn, then the next left on Firetower Rd. There will be a water tank at the turn. When that road ends, take a right. Travel about 6 miles and it will bring you into Rodney. The road will turn to gravel before you get there. Don’t give up though! It will go back to pavement at the top of the hill leading into the old town!”
