Ghosts Along the Mississippi is a Forgotten Treasure Trove of Decayed Southern Architectural Jewels

Ghosts Along The MississippiGhosts Along The Mississippi by Clarence John Laughlin
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Ghosts Along the Mississippi, by Clarence John Laughlin, was one of my favorite books during my childhood. The decay of the subjects, the waste, the wanton beauty of these disappearing houses could not help but entrance me. I’d been to see Windsor Castle, the burned wreck of a once gorgeous southern beauty, and only Laughlin could capture the sense of waste and magic.

If you can find a copy in great or very good shape, and love architectural photography, buy it, for God’s sake. If you love paranormal books, buy it, borrow, find it; the houses in their state make perfect homes for the paranormal Southern heroes and heroines.
