Corinth, Mississippi Ghost Sightings
I have lived in Corinth Miss for two years now. I have heard a lot about Corinth being haunted. I thing that Corthian Arbors is sort of a haunted place.|

When I was a young girl I lived on Gardner Road. It was said that that neighborhood was once a camp during the Civil War, and not far down from Gardner Road was a small battle. My siblings and I witnessed many strange occurrences. My first night in our new home my dog reacted to what sounded like someone walking around in the bathroom. My dog seemed unhappy and stayed by my side. It looked in the bathroom as I fell back asleep, and in the morning my dog was still staring into the bathroom.
One night I witnessed the shadow of a small child running up and down the hallway. It would stop from time to time, and it would stop in the doorway of my room. One of my siblings saw a Civil War soldier standing in the game room, and one night we heard what we believe to be a poltergeist. We would have many cases where our belongings would disappear for months and then reappear at random. After a few years our parents decided we had outgrown the house, and it was time to move. When we started this process one of my siblings heard scratching in the walls. It was only for a few minutes and wasn't heard again until the last days in our old house. It continued on and off all day! It's been a little over ten years since we've moved out. I have nightmares of that house. From what I have been told the house has been redone, but I still will never live in that house or even step back in it!.

Every story has a beginning and an ending, and every house has a history. The haunted house west of where K-mart now sits was well known for its haunted past by the people of Corinth, and my parents were warned not to live there. The stories I heard were passed down to me by the people in my family who lived them. I don't remember a name being given to the old lady who lived and died there, but for some unknown reason I always called her Mary Anne. I believed she was buried in the old city cemetery in Corinth and had been preceded in death by a brother, her last living relative. She was the last member of a prominent Corinth family and had died alone in this old house which was later bought by a family who built a boat business near where the old house had stood. The old lady had lived pacing up and down the stairs gathering leaves from an apple tree and rattling doorknobs of her unsuspecting guests. In later years as I grew up in Prentiss County anything that could not be explained would be attributed to the antics of Mary Ann, an old lady from the past whom I never knew during a time in which I had not yet been born. Rest in peace Mary Anne and may your story yet be told.
