Mysterious Turning Angel in Natchez Cemetery


Between touring the many antebellum homes in Natchez, we decided to check out one of the local "spooking sites". The Turning Angel is located in the Natchez Cemetery. The angel got her name as it is said that she turns her head to look at you while you drive past her on the road. Finding her takes a little effort, but it is worth it - a little creepy, but worth it! Since we always analyze everything, we believe that moving shadows at dusk make it appear that her head turns to look at you. At least we hope that's it! (The angel was placed there to look over the graves of many employees of a local drug company that died during a massive explosion in 1908.)

Social Media Description

Do you enjoy visiting spooky or mysterious sites when you travel?

We are always intrigued by off the beaten path locations - and yes, even if they are said to be haunted or mysterious! Following our visit, we usually try to come up with a logical explanation for why people think the site is spooky ... sometimes we can, but sometimes we can't! After finding the Turning Angel statue in Natchez, Mississippi, we aren't positive that we have figured out why it appears that she follows you as you drive by!

What is the most mysterious or haunted site that you have visited? . . . . #ghosts #angels #MovingStatues #mississippi #natchez #WordyExplorers
