COLUMBUS, Miss. (WCBI)- Nearly 60 students from Mississippi School for Math and Science presented their stories at the annual Tales from the Crypt event at Friendship Cemetery in Columbus Wednesday night.

The students spent their fall semester researching an individual who died before 1930.

During the hour long, candlelight walking-tour students give guests a descriptive tale of their life, even dressing in the era the person lived.

Tickets are $5 for adults, $3 for children.
