Disappointing. The marker was made in 1995 (and then smashed?) and the witch's name isn't listed anywhere. We walked around like fools for 15 minutes before seeing the clearly marked "Witches Grave" (sic) road sign. [J Maynard, 07/27/2014]
When entering the Glenwood Cemetery's main entrance, veer right, and a green sign on the left says "Witch's grave." [Sue, 05/28/2014]
Witch grave about 30 feet from the sign on the road pointing towards it.
The grave of a legendary witch rests in a cemetery in Yazoo City. After being arrested and convicted of witchcraft, a woman swore revenge on Yazoo City as she was being executed. The townsfolk chained her casket shut and buried her deep in the ground, placing a stone slab on top of the grave. Days later, the town burned to the ground. Returning to the witch's grave, they found the slab split in two, and upon exhuming her casket, the chains broken.
