Turning Angel On March 14, 1908 there was a HUGE explosion at the Natchez Drug Company, a 5-story brick structure located downtown. The explosion was so massive it totally destroyed the building killing numerous people including all of the employees.
The explosion put the drug company out of business, but the owner was so devastated that he purchased a lot to bury his employees and he purchased this angel monument to place at their gravesite. His youngest employee was 12 years old.
