Windsor Ruins - Port Gibson MS Real Haunted Places

The Windsor Ruins in Port Gibson feature 23 Corinthian columns that are the only remains left of the Windsor plantation mansion. The mansion seemed to be an eerie place from the very beginning. Its owner, Smith Coffee Daniell II, died within just a few weeks of the mansion's 1861 completion. The mansion burned down to the ground three decades later, supposedly after someone dropped a cigarette during a party.

Rumor has it that one of the ghosts lingering at the ruins was was a Union soldier who was killed in the mansion’s doorway during the Civil War. Other reports say that Daniell could be seen in the ruins, along with sounds of a party from long ago.

The Ruins have been featured in the 1957 film “Raintree County" and in the 1996 film “Ghosts of Mississippi."
