Vicksburg, MS - McRaven House Ghost Investigation

A few of the many apparitions you might encounter while visiting the McRaven Tour Home...

• Mary Elizabeth Howard is our most active spirit. She died at a young age in 1836 shortly after childbirth. She was the lady of the house as the empire section was built by her husband, Sheriff Steven Howard. If you visit McRaven, you may get a glimpse of Mary Elizabeth.

• John Bobb built the grand Greek Parlor and Master Suite of McRaven. He survived the Vicksburg Siege at McRaven, only to be murdered a year later by Union troops. Come and hear his story as this prominent business man met his tragic end, and how he still strolls his balcony.

• Andrew Glass built McRaven probably as a hideout. He was a notorious highwayman who rode with the Murrell Gang. He robbed people on the Natchez Trace and built two rooms at McRaven to count his spoils. Oddly the room is not all that different from the way he left it nearly 200 years ago. His spirit is active at McRaven, come only if you dare.
