A ghose (for sure).

A ghost (for sure).

It’s them, not us!

No, it’s not Halloween, and that never stops the story of Robert Johnson making a midnight deal with the Devil at the Crossroads.  Here in this mystical place, with often surreal gothic themes, spirit has always been here aplenty.  Unlike anywhere else, we’ve seen great spirit coming out of poverty that gave melodic gift to mankind, and we’ve seen the worst in our nature create the abusive horror that gave rise to it.

Devil at the Crossroads.The devil did his dance here, that’s for sure, the Crossroads myth is part of it, and we’ve found rejoice knowing that light did overcome darkness too.  But, in the back of our minds, even thinking about all that became good, do we still wonder… are there any ghosts still lurking around in the shadows of our dark Delta nights?

Well, the good news is apparently NO.  In two recent examples, lets not call them scientific studies, we are way down on the ghost meter.  If fact Clarksdale is not even a tepid normal on the paranormal; the ghost meter just laughs at us.  We got the Crossroads, but others got the ghosts!  (ok, if we even had one ghost, lets hope it is Son House)

It’s Vicksburg and Natchez that have a real ghost problem.

Here’s the evidence, the list from a recent article below details the top ten haunted places in Mississippi.  Vicksburg has three of them. Natchez, only two.

The next list is from a recent article about tours of haunted houses in Mississippi.  Vicksburg has four of these . Natchez, again only two.  And, Vicksburg further stands out as having the most haunted house in Mississippi, and the third scariest place in the country (McRaven, don’t go there).

Vicksburg ghosts run amuck at Cedar Grove Mansion just about any time.
