It's called “The Turning Angel,” so-named because when cars drive by at night and their headlights shine on the monument, it appears to turn. It overlooks the grave sites of five employees of the Natchez Drug Company – all young women and girls – who were killed in a massive explosion in 1908. The explosion put the company out of business, but the owner was so devastated that he purchased a lot to bury his employees along with this angel monument. His youngest employee was 12 years old.
