387 Old Corinth Rd

You are here Home  > Miscellaneous >  387 Old Corinth Rd

Its an old two story house that has been there for at least 20 to 30 years, unkept, and feels like you’re being drawn towards it. Ever time I walk past it, its feels like danger, like something demonic is calling me to come with him or her somewhere. A family used to live in it, until something strange happened to the family. I saw a little boy, about 5 or 6 yrs old, walking out of the path way leading to the house. The other members of the family or walking around restlessly, and has caused people to crash into the curve following the house. (Submitted by S.W.)

  1. We visited 387 Old Corinth Road. There isn’t much house left to walk through, it seemed as if bums had been in there. We did catch an orb in two different pictures around the same place. We had an infrared camera, two GoPro Hero 3s, and a Cannon PowerShot. We have checked if it was particles or debris. They were taken a few minutes apart, but in the one picture you can see the orb much better and it’s much bigger. I honestly felt alright in the house, truthfully was more scared walking up on somebody crashing in that place than anything. Pretty fun place to explore at night and even in the day

    • There’s another building down a path to the right of the house. It’s concrete, looks to be more of a shed type building. Multiple rooms.

  2. I have been there 3 times and haven’t seen , heard or felt anything. The house has just about completely fallen in so you can’t get very far past the front door. The strangest thing I saw was to the right side of the house in the back there is a in ground swimming pool that is still full of water (green water) I would like to know what all is in the bottom of the pool. I would also like to know the name if the people that used to live there, I would like to do a lit research on them.

  3. I have been there 3 times during the day. Twice we went up the patch that brought us up to the side of the house. And both times we could hear what sounded like a little girl talking, but couldn’t understand anything she said. And the voice was loud! The third time we went there we walked up the path that brought us up to the front of the house. That time we didn’t hear anything. We have never seen anything or had anything show up in pictures. There is however a beautiful HUGE tree in the front of the house. I would love to know what is in the bottom of the swimming pool that is in the back right side of the yard. Does anyone know who owns the land? I would love to do some research on the land and would also like to metal detect around the house.

  4. My friend told me a story about what happened here. Apparently there was some wealthy man who had built this house for his family. His wife had decided to leave him and in a fit of rage he killed his family and then himself. People were angry and took revenge by destroying the house (it seems like I remember something about a fire). One of the parents (I think it was the man) had a brother who allegedly owns the house now. I don’t know if this is a true story and I’m sorry I don’t completely remember it.

  5. I decided to ask my mom about this since I assumed (correctly) she was alive when all this happened. She went to school with a girl named Mary Priest who’s family owned this house. Mary was in a wheelchair and mom said she was a swimmer and would often exercise in the house’s pool. She doesn’t know exactly what happened to the Priest family but thinks they moved away. Apparently, they didn’t sell the house and so it fell into disrepair. There was a man who was a manager either at Howard’s (modern day Dirt Cheap) or Wal-Mart. When he got home from work one day, his severely mentally ill wife had killed their children and then herself. This happened on (735?) Old Highway 42 sometime in the early 70s. Mom showed me the house and I tried my best to find the address on Google maps. I don’t really know how the stories got mixed together, but I really think that’s what happened.

  6. I am from Petal and never heard anything about this. My grandparents, when they were alive, lived too far away from there. They never mentioned anything about it. I have driven up and down Corinth road (both at night and during the daytime, and never saw or heard anything out of the ordinary.

  7. My roommate and I take that road quite often, and we know if the story or at least that it’s supposedly haunted. One night maybe a week ago she and I were going to get some McDonalds (the new location is right off of that curve) and the street light in the middle of the curve flickered and then it blew sparks and cut off as we drove through. We were only going about 30 mph maybe less because it’s a pretty deep curve. It was horrifying tbh. I think we were more scared because we knew that it was supposed to be haunted…

  8. Yea I live in a fairly old house off Quinn st and a lot has been going on in it recently at night. Cabinets opening, plates flying and knocks on my doors and no one there. I just find it odd. Probably don’t need to freak

  9. I went to this house about ten times in 2015 because i couldn’t stop checking it out. I lived close by and I’m obsessed with paranormal shit. Anyway, There is a creepy green pool. It feels like super charged energy around it. Maybe something bad happened in the pool. The house was falling apart and there were a bunch of old clothes lying around. Just decrepit and falling apart. There was also that concrete building someone mentioned. Feels like bad stuff happened back there too. Anyway, I still want to go back to see if I see anything more. Overall feeling : dread.

    • No one ever said ghost hunting was going to be easy. And today, I definitely found that out first-hand. I believe my friend did as well. It was our first time to the location. We experience some degree of difficulty getting back to the old cement “shed” (as y’all have called it here). I believe my friend and I became some sort of ghost hunting archeologists!! We were not only VERY intrigued by the stories which we read here; we became fascinated by the structure and surroundings! we spent about 2 hours at the location and barely looked at and got through half of the stuff that we wanted to. We will be going back in the near future, especially after we’ve done a little more research on this location. I hope this next photo intrigued you as much as it did us. And as always, Happy Haunting!

    • Did you happen to have the part of the story that was continued on page 10? I remember when this happened, but I thought it was in 1981.

  10. Me and my girlfriend were outside at my apartment around 11 last night just stargazing and talking about life. In about 2 hours time we saw 4 shooting stars and several ( what looked like ) modern day drones flying around that we just chopped up as someone playing with their drones at night. I live at the oak hill apartments literally next door to this old house. At the time I knew nothing about the house other than remembering when I was younger there was a field across from this house that had a baseball backdrop that a lot of families would go to and just practice with their kids . It’s now all grown up and it seems someone planted a bunch of pine trees in that location now. I specifically remember though the big oak tree in the front yard and a man that used to have a pony tied to the tree for kids to get on and take pics and walk around the yard. ( I’m going to search for pics when I get to my moms ) . Which now that I’m older does seem kinda odd especially reading these stories. But back to last night, we were just laying down after seeing all the shooting stars and drone like lights and then we saw what looked like a shadow in the dark floating above like an orb in the sky. But it was just darker than the night sky if you know what I mean. After that we saw a white like orb floating in the sky and then disappear right above where the house would have been at. We didn’t think much about it until what was very clearly a floating white dress to the right side of my fence line. My gf saw the same thing but said it was black instead of white. Chills went all over us and we almost hit this excitement level that typically wouldn’t happen after seeing something that should scare the hell out of us instead. However, we did go inside right afterwards and started looking up what seeing white and black apparitions means. Weirdly enough it means that a betrayal of a spouse or fiancé has taken place ( coinciding with the stories of the husband or wife killing their kids ) . Which once again we didn’t know the story of the house until we got up my sisters house today and started telling her the story. We then started looking up deaths around that area and it led us here.

  11. I saw David today and he has elusions of serving in Vietnam I as a small child would swim in that “dark pool” I have never known the Priest family as being weird. I think after Mrs Priest died David may have tripped. I think he has a brother, I will check with my dad who has better knowledge of David and his family. I know that David used to work for King Brother’s masonry. I will keep this post updated
