The Lady in Black at the Prattville Cotton Gin Factory

Kathryn Tucker Windham in her book JEFFREY INTRODUCES 13 MORE SOUTHERN GHOSTS chronicled the story of little Willie Youngblood, who died at the cotton gin manufacturing plant in Prattville, Alabama, and of his spectral mother, known as the “Lady in Black”.

This past week I got to visit the “Prattville Gin” myself for the first time. I didn’t see the Lady in Black, and there are those who maintain the story of little Willie’s mom is a fabrication, but my traveling companion that day, who is a sensitive, assured me the site is hella haunted.

Nah, ain’t no ghosts here…
