Glenwood Cemetery full of Yazoo history
By JAMIE PATTERSON
Her stories are forever etched upon the stones that float among her rolling hills.
And her sacred ground holds the rich history of Yazoo and the people who shaped this small community.
Glenwood Cemetery is a chest full of legends, memories and tales that continue to attract visitors and locals through her historic gates.
The local cemetery was recently voted the “second spookiest cemetery” in the United States. But many Yazoo children already knew that with their childhood journeys beyond Glenwood’s entrance during the late evening hours.
But the stories within her gates are more than just ghost stories to appeal to visitors. The true characters in their final resting places have stories that go well beyond the chains of a legendary witch.
Glenwood holds the story of Yazoo.
