A Southern Folk Tradition, Grave Houses Were Once A Common Sight In Mississippi    

The South is steeped in tradition. Some traditions, like filling up on cabbage and black-eyed peas on New Year’s Day, are well-known and still honored. Others have faded away throughout the years. Grave houses fall into the second category. Once a prominent part of Southern folk culture, grave houses are now a thing of the past; however, that doesn’t make them any less intriguing.

During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
