  • The Big Orange Light...

    When I was a 10 year old child, my grandmother along with my aunt took me “ghost hunting”. This was something that we did from time to time simply as an excuse to get out of the house on the weekends. With our normal potted meat and crackers in hand we headed out one Friday night to Burnt Bridge to look for the headless lady. What we got that night was far more than we could have ever imagined. About 1 - 2 miles from Burnt Bridge, an orange light began to flicker in the distant night sky. We wrote it off as a blaze from the nearby refinery. However this light seemed to follow. Eventually we came around a curve to an opening in the canopy trees that had covered the road, and there in the sky was a huge orange light! It’s a UFO!! My aunt began to scream! I remember noticing that the trees were not blowing, and this “UFO” made no sound. The orange glow filled the car to the point I remember covering my eyes and the light still flooded thru my fingers! We quickly drove away in horror! Years later in my late 20’s, I drove a friend of mine to the old Burnt Bridge and told my story. While outside the car exploring the wooded area leading down to the bridge, a four wheeler pulled upon us. A lady spoke out and asked us what we were doing on this private property? I jokingly told her I was a former ghost hunter and was simply showing the area to my friend. She said, “Well, if your looking for the headless lady, she doesn’t come in the form of a lady wearing a wedding dress as legend tells”. I asked her what she meant. She responded... “ She appears in the form of a big orange light. It’s believed that the orange light is the glow from her lantern as she shines it into your car as she looks for her long lost love”. It was then I realized that it was no UFO that we saw that night, but perhaps we had actually come face to face with a legend! —-MKC

  • Rape victim

    Friends, my wife, myself, and our children were camping down the creek about 200 yards from the bridge. A young naked lady crossed the creek and approached the ladies of our group and stated she had been raped by three men she had met at a local night club and left beaten badly in the near by woods. She was provided clothing and transported to sheriff's office. Not paranormal but certainly a evil deed done in an evil place.

  • historical heresay

    My family is probably the most informed, owning the unproduced land 200 miles surrounding it. Its history is not one but several incidents that has made the area creepy. My aunt said as a child a man walked to the door covered in blood at night trying to clean up. My father told me two three stories. 1. Deerwoman, she was gorgeous and wore a long dress. Lured men in the woods only to have deer feet and trample them. 2. At the bridge on Davis you would park and turn the car of at the bridge and you would have smoke surround your car that looks like fog and you couldn't start you car. And when u got out to push it there would already be handpints on the back where something has already tried to push u out. 3. A man named clyde was murdered by his wife cut to pieces and buried.
