Cedar Grove Inn

This house has a cannonball lodged in the wall. I really don’t care if it’s haunted or not – it has a cannonball lodged in the wall. How cool is that? The result of being strafed during the Civil War, the homeowners apparently decided the cannonball was a nifty conversation starter and left it there. What precisely the hauntings are, I haven’t had a chance to truly investigate yet, distracted as I have been by the cannonball in the wall, but supposedly there are numerous ghosts that haunt this stately inn. Some are no doubt a leftover from its days as a Union Hospital during the war as well as several personal tragedies that befell the family who lived there.

    1. Definitely haunted. Visited with my parents when I was teenager (Around 1993). I had several experiences in several places on the property during the 2 days we were there. I will never forget it.

    2. I have never been there. But it has always been my dream to become a Paranormal Investigator. I’m sitting at an office desk at Tennessee College of Applied Technology ….. to become a Medical Records Technician. I have always had a passion for the world beyond ours. I have never been more interested in doing something more with my education than set at an office. ….. Should have chose a better career than Medical Records Technician.

    3. My husband and I went to the area for our forty first wedding anniversary, and decided to stay in Vicksburg as it did not seem nearly as crowded or as expensive as Natchez. I picked this property off the internet because it had everything I wanted for the stay. I have to say this place is very nice: it is lovely, and the food was wonderful. But there is “stuff” there. I felt it immediately when I went to our room to put our things away. I asked whatever it was to please leave us alone, as this was a celebration of our anniversary, and we wanted to enjoy it. I have to say, whatever it was did as I asked, and we were never frightened- but there were workers there scared to death, especially one girl who worked in the dining room, who was terrified of the stairs and the hallways.I was all over this house and took pictures with my cellphone, and got a heck of a surprise when I looked at them later. In one picture, you can just see the trailing hem of a ladie’s long dress. The picture was taken at daybreak, as I sat in the room with the cannon ball lodged in the wall. I did not get any feelings of dread or terror, but felt at times an atmosphere of quiet, gentle sadness.As I said, it is a lovely place and do not feel frightened to stay- you will absolutely adore the food, the chef is magnificent. But stuff is definitely here- no doubt about it.

    4. My husband stayed in 2002 and 2007. The trip in 2002 was very scary. We stayed in the Victoria Suite. I woke up the first night with something scratching on the side of my bed. I thought that it was my husband’s arm under my head, but then I turned towards him and realized that he was on the other side of the bed. The next thing I remember is something pushing my arm as if trying to wake me up. I was too scared to open my eyes!! The next night I heard something rattling our dry cleaning plastic in the “Hall” behind the bed. I could also hear “them” shaking my bag that I keep my medicine and toiletries in. I remember asking the front desk if the place was haunted. They said that our suite was the old nursery and that “the children” always tried to wake up the “parent” on the right side of the bed. The next night I was very tired and left my husband on the rooftop. I went back to the suite and left the light on in the bathroom. He told me the next morning that there wasn’t any light on when he came to the room. He went to take a shower and I heard a strange “clanging” sound over by the dresser. Turns out that the change that my husband had thrown on the bureau rearranged itself in a line and all the pennies were turned face down. Nothing happened in 2007 – we stayed in the library suite which was formerly the morgue. The next night we stayed in the suite to the left of the staircase. No ghosts this time!!

      On May 13, 2004 we visited the Cedar Grove Inn.

      It was late in the day when we arrived, and the tour we joined was the last of the day. Our guide was in the middle of her description of the first room when we were joined by a young couple. They apologized for interrupting, but explained that they had just been married that day and the reception had gone on longer than they had expected. The young lady particularly wanted her young husband to see the house because she was a descendant of the original owners. Of course they were welcomed, and the tour went on. One of the rooms was the office/library of the original owner. It is lined with bookcases that all have glass doors. In the course of telling us about the room the guide explained that there were some interesting books in the cases but they had had to start keeping the bookcases locked because there had been some thefts. She was sorry, but we wouldn’t be able to see the books any more. As she spoke I turned to look down the room. The newly-married young man was standing behind me and as I watched the door of one of the bookcases swung gently open until it tapped him on the shoulder! She had said the cases were locked, but the door had swung open. The young man looked extremely startled and I said to him, “I think you have just been welcomed into the family.” The guide came over and closed and relocked the door and set a heavy vase in front of it and the tour went on. At the end of the tour I asked her, “Do you have a lot of that sort of thing here?” Her answer was, “Not usually in this part of the house.”
