‪There is a road to go down to get to Rodney. Unfortunately it has a road closed sign. My husband didn't want to go further, so I left on foot. As I walked I started to feel uneasy. I got to the town and it is not a ghost town. It is very much occupied. Several mobile homes were on stilts. I started thinking about the movie Wrong Turn. I did go inside one church and I took some pictures. My husband found a alternate route to come get me. By this time I was hiding in some tall grass by the other church. The whole time I was walking around I had the feeling as if I was being watched.‬

‪This is a must see location for paranormal investigators, The church is very active and beautiful...The wood work is amazing and well kept up..There's an older gentleman that watches over the two church's, Yes there's two of them ..Becareful during the summer. The snakes are bad..The best time to go is during the winter..Don't miss the graveyard in the back of the church..Take the trail that's to the right of the red brick church and you can't miss it..To see a video of the place go to..

‪Not exactly a ghost town, but there are a few abandoned buildings from back in the day. A visit lasts less than one hour. The best road to it is from just north of the Lorman store. The one from Alcorn Univ is more dodgy. ‬

‪Rodney, MS, as other reviewer said, is truly a creepy place. However, it is not really a ghost town in the truest sense of the word, because there are a number of people living there. Getting there is a challenge. You have to go through backwoods, gravel and dirt roads, some nearly overgrown with vegetation. The few buildings that are left are spread out here and there. If you are physically able, you can hike around the old church and a couple of other places. When we got out of the car at the old boarded-up church the dog from the trailer home next door came over and started barking at us. We took this as a sign that we weren’t supposed to be there and left. There are some good photo ops for photographers. The day we went there had been a hard rain the night before and the dirt roads were muddy and rutted. We almost got stuck a couple of times. Thank goodness for all-wheel drive. The condition of the ground, not to mention the weeds, bugs and barking dogs, prevented us from doing much exploring. We found out that once you are there, GPS or Google Maps isn’t much help getting out. They sent us down a couple of dead-ins that required us to back out a good distance because there was no place to turn around. We even had to back across a very narrow rickety bridge. Our car got all scratched up from low-hanging branches. There was one building that looked like a municipal building that was being restored. Going there is for the adventurous but be aware of the potential obstacles.‬

‪My wife and I love to visit ghost towns. It's part of our fascination for all things historic. In our travels, we have visited old mining camps in Colorado, Montana, Arizona, California and Nevada. But Rodney, Mississippi, is a whole different experience. Once a bustling city on the banks of the Mississippi River, it was the busiest port on the Mississippi River between New Orleans and St. Louis with almost 1,000 residents, two banks, two newspapers, a large hotel with a ballroom, the state's first opera house and several churches. It numbered almost 4,000 residents by 1860, more than Jackson. Graves in Rodney Cemetery date to 1828, the year Rodney was incorporated as a town. In fact, Rodney was the state capitol after Mississippi achieved statehood in 1817. So what happened? In 1870, the Mississippi River changed course, moved two miles west and Rodney lost its port. Loss of river trade caused many residents to move to more progressive towns. By 1930, Rodney was no longer considered an official town. The 2011 flood washed away most of the residents and buildings that were left. But Rodney still remains a time capsule of a past we seldom see today. Rodney is located 32 miles northeast of Natchez. From Lorman, home of Alcorn State University, take Route 552 west to Rodney. It isn't as easy as it sounds. Locate Old Country Store on Highway 61 in Lorman. Behind the store, make a turn onto a road that doesn't look like a road and travel northwest, passing the Cane Ridge Cemetery. Go 12 miles of blacktop and dirt road until you reach Rodney. Today, it is a one-road town with only remnants of the past. Drive down muddy but once bustling Commerce Street. See the Baptist Church with its stunning Greek Gothic architecture and silver dome rising into the sky. See the Presbyterian Church with its grand bell tower, the finest example of Federalist architecture in Mississippi. Founded in 1828, the red-brick structure still stands as a symbol of the community. The Masonic Lodge and Alston's Grocery Store still stand. Church Street, Cypress Street and Magnolia Street, once busy thoroughfares, are no longer visible. Commerce Street used to be two blocks from the Mississippi River. Now it is four miles away. But Rodney still beckons to visitors who harken for a glimpse of the past. Did you know that Rodney is the only ghost town with its own newspaper? The Rodney Telegraph is a quarterly online publication that keeps old-timers and historians and travelers abreast of current events in the town.‬

‪We traveled on AWFUL roads that were almost impassible and completely grown over ( would be impossible for a car to go through) when GPS took us out and ended up on Alcorn state university campus. we actually didn’t get out of the car because we were so isolated and weirded out by the one person we did see. We took pictures and dint actually go in the places because it was super backwoods creepy and we’re usually not that intimidated. I’m guessing it was the Masonic lodge that as looked like it was being repaired or rebuilt? ‬

‪If you are passing through, I would recommend taking a short while to visit this intriguing place, but be considerate of those who still live in Rodney.‬

‪Finding Rodney may be your biggest challenge. We drove many miles on seemingly abandoned dirt roads, and found a number of lonely, unoccupied houses, churches, and cemeteries before we arrived at our planned destination. Rodney doesn't really qualify as a true ghost town, because there are still a few folks who live there, so be polite and aware of them. The majority of the buildings and property have been abandoned over the years, and driving the narrow dirt streets reveals many crumbling buildings being covered with vegetation. The two churches are probably the main attractions, with the Baptist Church suffering more from the repeated floods and neglect. This is even though it was still in use more recently than the much better preserved Presbyterian Church. The Baptist church sits lower and drainage is obviously a problem. The day of our visit, there was about 6" of standing water surrounding the wooden sanctuary, which made access somewhat difficult. The Presbyterian church sits higher on the next street, and even though the concrete of the steps is crumbling, it is in overall better repair. There are a number of historical plaques around this building which recount much of the area's history.‬
