    On quiet summer evenings a mysterious yet beautifully haunting sound can be heard emanating from the waters of Singing River. From the time of the earliest settlements in the area, writers have noted and pondered the source of the mysterious sounds of Singing River.

    The legend attributed to the mysterious sounds tell a sad but beautiful story of the extension of the Pascagoula Indians. The Pascagoulas, a peaceful, gentle tribe, were beset upon by the neighboring Biloxi Indians, a fierce, warlike tribe. Having lost several battles with the Biloxi Indians in which many of the Pascagoula warriors were killed, and with the shouts of their victorious foes ringing in their ears, the Pascagoulas resolved to die rather than be enslaved. All the men, women and children of the Pascagoulas clasped their hands together and marched into the serene waters of the Singing River chanting their death song, perishing beneath the waves. It is a beautiful legend of courage and love and the eternal death song of the Pascagoula Indians can be heard by all those who care to listen upon the banks of Singing River.

    Favorite thing: We were just passing through, behind schedule, and I didn’t get to see all the things I had listed to see other than the old Spanish fort and cemetery on Krebs Lake. Other things to see in Pascagoula are Scranton Floating Museum, Round Island Lighthouse, Pascagoula Railroad Depot & Singing river Art Assn amongst other things.
