Why is Jackson So Haunted?

Jackson’s foundation was laid out by French explorer and Native American liaison Louis LeFleur along the dangerous Natchez Trace in 1798. This Native American trading route, used for centuries by the tribes of the South and Gulf Coast, became a hotbed for bandits and outlaws. LeFleur’s tavern greeted weary travelers, even the ones with more malicious intentions, as they began to flood into Mississippi in 1801.

The city was officially founded in 1821 and grew slowly. But Jackson’s place in history was cemented when Ulysses S. Grant, William T. Sherman, and the Union torched every single building to the ground in 1863 on their way to Vicksburg. This Civil War carnage has left behind a slew of paranormal hauntings plaguing places like the Old Capitol Inn or the haunted Kuhl Hospital just outside town.

It took years for Jackson to rebuild. As more African Americans rose to prominence during the Reconstruction, laws were enacted to sequester their humanity. Devious plots and heinous murders took place in the name of the old ways. By the mid-20th century, many decided to fight back, and Jackson became a focal point of the Civil Rights movement. More deaths plagued the city, just as the murder of leader Medgar Evers.

Spirits still linger from these terrible times in hospitals, homes, and hotels. Jackson’s spiritual world is alive from the deeds of its barbaric past. Explore all of the city’s haunted history with Lizzie Borden Ghost Tours. Book your spot on a Jackson ghost tour with us tonight!
