Hunting is a popular pastime in southern Mississippi, but Friday night at the Beauvoir, a different kind of prey was being hunted: ghosts. The first official ghost hunt at the Beauvoir took place Friday night. Another will take place on Saturday night, and both will be overseen by Mississippi Gulf Coast Paranormal.

The group serves the tri-state area and will investigate any anomaly that makes a property owner nervous, whether they are able to provide a scientific explanation or not. The group feels that the old confederate home provides the perfect back drop for paranormal activity, and many employees and museum goers have had ghostly experiences, including sightings of Jefferson Davis himself.

Lois Ellitt with Mississippi Gulf Coast Paranormal, "We've had guests that have seen it. One woman in particular complained that the actor portraying Jefferson Davis fussed at her for stepping into the garden. There were no re-enactors here that day."

Mississippi Gulf Coast Paranormal conducted tests Friday evening, and there will be a live Youtube broadcast Saturday night.
