McRaven is considered the most haunted house in Mississippi. It was built in 1797 by a highway bandit named Andrew Glass, who died in his room after being shot. One of the first ghosts seen there is that of a Confederate soldier who died there in 1886 when it was briefly used as a hospital. He appears in the parlor and on the front porch. Other ghosts from past residents dating as far back as Glass have also been seen. Activity includes physical attacks, flickering lights and slamming doors.
