Glenwood Cemetery

Glenwood Cemetery dates back to at least 1856. A simple marker is placed before a large plot near the creek designating a mass Confederate grave. Located not far from the fountain in Glenwood is a grave, surrounded by chain links, known as “The Witch’s Grave.” The legend of the Witch that burned Yazoo City in 1904 was made famous in a book written by Willie Morris, a celebrated Mississippi author. Morris’ grave is located 13 steps south of the Witch’s grave. Glenwood was voted the second "Spookiest Cemetery in the US" in a HuffPost Travel poll in 2012. Tours are available.
