Preview The Most Haunted Locations In Jackson

Welcome to Jackson Ghost Tour

Once a tattered collection of burnt buildings and lonesome smokestacks, Jackson is now home to the eerie and otherworldly. The phantoms of “Chimneyville” wander amongst the living in a state of ethereal disdain, forever tormented by the brutality that made them permanent residents of their former earthly homes.


Justice Served Nightly


Jackson has tried its best to erase the stain of its hateful past. But the ghosts of its heinous and tumultuous past have yet to find peace, spreading their pain and anger throughout the city. Follow Jackson Ghosts as we take you through the haunted streets of the city and into the epicenter of its frightening, unexplained activity.


Hear the horrible story of two murders left unresolved for over forty years in front of haunted Downtown Jackson’s “The Courthouse.” Operating as an apartment complex today, the spirits of former Klansmens and power-hungry judges idle in the shadows, locked inside the former historic courthouse to replay their past dirty deeds for eternity. 


These restless souls continue to taunt the living, terrifying residents with unexplained cold spots, disembodied footsteps, and maniacal laughter. And it’s only the beginning of the terror that consumes downtown Jackson. Jackson Ghosts invites you to explore the City With Soul, where the spirits of the past refuse to find peace, and the echoes of injustice reverberate through time.
