The Old Southern Funeral home was constructed in 1954 and was originally called The Woodall Funeral Home, it was later sold in 1955 and the name subsequently changed to Nowell Funeral Home.

The Haunted Old Southern Funeral home sits in the little town of Kosciusko in Mississippi, with a town population of only 6,891.
The hauntings and superstitions in Kosciusko have been going back since 1890 and carries a scary tale known throughout the state of the statue of Mrs. Laura Kelly.
With Kosciusko being the birthplace of Oprah Winfrey, James Meredith and other well-known’s, a place which has avoided strife even since the Civil War. We heard the cannons at a distance during that conflict and once or twice soldiers rode through town. But never a shot was fired.
The site became permanent with the cession of lands of northeast and Central Mississippi to the whites at the treaty of Dancing Rabbit Creek in the late 1830’s.
With the grant, the county was formed from over 500 square miles of what had been Choctaw lands and with it need for names…both of the county and its seat.
William Dodd served the area in his first appearance at the state assembly in Jackson and to him fell the opportunity of finding names.
He chose for the county the name of Attala, a fictional Indian princess from the Natchez Tribe and heroine of a popular novel of the time. Relatives say he also recalled the fondness an ancestor had held for the Polish engineer on George Washington’s staff during the Revolutionary War, Tadeusz Kosciuszko.
We are the land of the purest drinking water in Mississippi and a hundred other firsts…at mile marker 160 on the Trace, just 70 miles from Jackson.
