The Yazoo City Witch Project

Yazoo City, Mississippi is often called “the gateway to the Delta” – serving as the transition from the state’s eastern bluffs to the mighty Mississippi River to the west. But it is Yazoo City’s terrifying past, made famous by writer Willie Morris, that brings to the town. According to local legend, a witch wrought the ultimate revenge on the city when, in May 1904, she escaped from her chained tomb and conjured a powerful firestorm that burned most of the community to the ground.

Join SouthernWayTV’s Darrell Lee as he tries to find the abandoned tomb of the Yazoo City Witch in an attempt to find out if the legend is real. What Darrell discovers in the Glenwood Cemetery at night just might shock (and scare) you…
