The most haunted place in Mississippi sits right here in Vicksburg



McRaven house

Mississippi is home to some of the most haunted places in the world. If you are an adventurer and aiming to visit some of the strangest places in Mississippi, McRaven House is the best option.

What started as a family home for an expectant couple in the 1800s would eventually become Mississippi’s most haunted house. Mississippi Paranormal Society investigated the house many times and say they have experienced many paranormal activities while exploring the place.

McRaven is registered with the National Register of Historic Places and was first opened to the public in 1961. For years, the home has welcomed school groups, ghost hunters and history buffs to witness the extensive history and paranormal aspects of the antebellum home year-round.

It is believed that five of its occupants died inside the house, and one of the occupants was murdered in front of the home. During the Civil War, it was used as a Confederate Hospital. There is a strong suspicion that many confederates might have died in the place, increasing the number of deaths within the house.

Although the entire house is said to have haunting effects, the middle room upstairs is considered the center of those activities. It is believed that one of the occupants, Elizabeth Howard, aged 15, died in this room during childbirth. Her ghost is said to roam around the room and make scary noises. According to one of its owners William Murry, he saw the ghost of a former owner sitting on the staircase.

All these stories make the house one of the most haunted places in Mississippi. The fact that the home was remodeled in three different periods adds to the popularity of the house and attracts tourists.
