This Ghost Town Chapel In Mississippi Is Hauntingly Beautiful
There’s no denying it; ghost towns are a bit on the spooky side. Just the thought of an entire town filled with nothing but deserted buildings and an eerie silence is enough to make anyone’s skin crawl. However, once you get past the creepy factor, these towns of yesteryear are actually quite interesting. Practically frozen in time, they’re like keys to the past, offering a one-of-a-kind view at days long gone. Rodney, one of the most famous ghost towns in Mississippi, is a prime example.
At one time a thriving community, it’s now home to only a handful of residents and a few buildings, including Mt. Zion Baptist Church. This historic chapel has been abandoned for quite some time, and though it’s falling into further disarray with each passing year, its beauty is undeniable. Take a look:
Remember, you can get to Rodney by driving through the Alcorn State University campus. For more information, click here.
