During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
1. Cedar Grove Mansion Inn, Vicksburg
Built in the 1840’s, Cedar Gove Mansion Inn is haunted by its former residents, the Klein family. Visitors have reported seeing Mr. and Mrs. Klein as well as hearing the couple's children roam about the halls. And they’re not alone. A young woman, also a former resident, committed suicide in the home and has been seen on the anniversary of her death.
2. Monmouth Historic Inn, Natchez
Monmouth Historic Inn was originally the plantation home of General John Quitman, and it appears as if he never left. The General, a hero in the U.S.- Mexican War, has been seen at the inn, still wearing his military uniform. Some guests have even reported being woken up by the General checking on them in their rooms.
3. Anchuca Historic Mansion and Inn, Vicksburg
The Anchuca Mansion dates back to 1830. One of the past owners, Richard Archer, had five daughters, and it is one of his daughters that is believed to be haunting the hotel. Legend has it that Archer wouldn’t let his daughter marry the love of her life and, for that, she is eternally resentful. “Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned” has a whole new meaning, doesn’t it?
4. Dunleith Historic Inn, Natchez
This National Historic Landmark was constructed in the late 1800’s, and has had some strange occurrences take place. Usually, hearing a musical instrument being played live is a real treat but after staying at the Dunleith Historic Inn you’ll probably feel differently. Patrons at the inn have reported hearing a harp being played…by a female apparition.
5. Linden Bed and Breakfast, Natchez
Dating all the way back to the 1700’s, it makes sense that the Linden Bed and Breakfast has had a lot of paranormal activity, but it doesn’t make it any less creepy! Sightings of a phantom horse-drawn carriage parked in the driveway have been reported, as well as what sounds like someone tapping a cane. And, that’s not all. Two apparitions, a man and a woman, are said to haunt the property. The man is often seen in a bedroom, while the woman has been seen jumping from the roof and disappearing into thin air before hitting the ground.
6. The Duff Green Mansion, Vicksburg
Serving as a hospital during the Civil War, the Duff Green Mansion is bound to have stories to tell. Several ghosts have been spotted on the property including one of the home’s original owners as well as numerous soldiers who most likely lost their lives in the mansion. One soldier in particular, a Confederate with a missing leg, can often be found sitting in front of the fireplace.
7. Annabelle Bed and Breakfast, Vicksburg
Built in the late 1800’s, Annabelle is one of several homes located in the Historic Garden District. In 1992, the home was converted to a bed and breakfast; however, it seems as if some past residents have refused to leave. On several occasions, the spirit of a one-legged soldier has been seen in an upstairs bedroom.
8. Lincoln Home Bed and Breakfast, Columbus
Originally constructed in the 1830’s, this home served as the first residence of the city’s mayor. Once restored it became a popular bed and breakfast – for both the living and non-living. Guests have reported seeing a woman in a white dress roaming the halls as well as seeing some type of hovering cloud moving around the parlor.
9. Bay Town Inn, Bay St. Louis
Being located near the beach, you’d expect the Bay Town Inn to provide a relaxing experience, not a supernatural one. Sightings of an entire family of ghosts, believed to be the French family who built the home originally occupying this location, have been reported on several occasions. And if you don’t see the family, you may feel their presence in a different way – hearing whispering voices is a common happening.
