I am brand new to the area and have been looking up the 1960 overpass story (I am from Michigan). I'm into stuff like this and have had personal experiences with things that can't be explained. Very interesting thread. I'm thinking about taking a drive down there tomorrow.
i once heard abandoned churches are extremely bad luck to be around and often have dominic activity going on in and around them if they are abandoned
i edited this post because i wrote "tey" instead of "they"- typing error
This is actually been reported many times. Many demons like to inhabit abandoned churches not because there's no "holy" presense there anymore but simply because churches are symbolic of human spirituality and know that the inhabitants are gone, they "take over" persay.
Demonic forces have also been known to drive away any "normal" spirits inhabiting the place before hand.

I have not posted here in a few years, which this is the only thread I have contributed to at all.
I never got around to posting about the expedition to the overpass which took place about three or four years ago. Two outtings were conducted and nothing was found except the decrepit cemetery.
Police have been actively monitoring the area now due to some pretty high profile vandalism in the past couple of years so be on the watch out. The second outing we did encounter police during the debriefing session under the overpass itself (the turn around on the east side of the over pass).
The easiest way to get there is via the train tracks, and you can get in a lot of trouble since they are considered private property. Also quite dangerous in that area because the passage way is quite narrow in places with little room on either side of the tracks.
If anyone wants more information, feel free to contact me and I can tell you what I know. Due to the police I do not recommend going out there because they will give tickets if you are caught (we got away with a warning only because they could not prove we went out there since we had already come back). I cant recall who owns the land there, but the best bet is to arrange something with the land owners rather than trespassing. Its a lot different out there now than when we went a few years ago since the vandalism.
hey me and my friend and my dad went down on the train tracks this night and we heard if you use cigarettes and connect them lightly together at the tips and if it moves inward outward up or down then that means there is paranormal activity near. And we tried it and it did happen. i got pushed back several times. we took pictures and got several red dots out of no where there were cops there and we asked them if we could talk to them on camera saying what had happened but he said nobody likes talking about this and that he would not talk about it which made me very suspicious the cops said two kids dug up bodies and used the skulls for a bong around last year and they said more paranormal activity has happened and he advised us not to go in that deep we also talked to the manger of pancho's but he did not want to talk about that with us he was very mad when we bought that up to him. if anybody has any stories i would love to hear them please.......
First of all, I just wanted to fill you guys in on a place I went to. I'm not asking for opinions nor am I trying to prove anything...this is just what I know happend. If you want to jump into the topic..<b>Here's the link about the area : but read below to find exactly where story is located.</b>
Scroll past all the cities til you see <b>Houston</b>, after that, scroll a few lines past that and the city is called <b>Humble, Texas : 1960 Overpass</b>...you will realized the next few stories following it are different buildings, but at the same location.

Ok, after I left work (where I mostly post from) I went home to gather a few things to go on an investigation. I don't have much equipment exept the general requirements such as Digital Camera, Digital Voice Recorder, and LED Flashlite with Red lense (which I preferred just brite light because I was spooked out.) I figured white light is purest for this occassion because Red look too eeirefor my current mood. HAha What a wus I am. The other members I usually asked to go with me were tied up do to family and wife reasons. (wife did not let him go play)
Anyways, I drove around 45 minutes to a supposedly extremely haunted place. This area is outside Houston, Texas. From what I have heard, everything around the area is active. All the buildings are said to be closed down due to this activity. So, as I drove there, I exited the off ramp and it does a u-turn underneath where there are railroad tracks. So when I spotted the Tracks, I looked around and i drove dead smack into it and didn't even realize this. The freakiest thing I saw was a church, because it has been abondoned from what I saw because the chains on the front door and from what i have read about it. They did not mentioned that there would be a giant white cross in front of the church doors. It looked more like it was there to deter evil spirits instead of a cross that symbolizes a church. Also, the Movie theater, miniture golf and wharhouse are all shut down due to enexplained events. Now to see a church scared enough to shut down is spooky.
Interesting part is, I had a sense of chest pains, like a stress or anxiety attack. Might be a vibe frim all the negative energy, might not. Who knows. N-E ways, it was a overwhelming feeling, you know that feeling when your nervous, and as much as i tried to hold my composure, evry hair on my body stood straight up. The area was built over a confederate cemetery and some of the bodies were unearth during the cinstuction prcess and no took the extra effert in cautiosly and consideratly bury the bodies back carefully. instead, they wrecklessly relocated in to the woods surrounding area. It is said that walking Corpses can be seen walikng around. I tried to snap some photo of the area for you guys, but my batteries in my Digital Camera went dead. This is strange because I spent all day charging them. Everyone knows if you use regular batteris in a digital does not last long, so i am always prepared. I use High Powered Energizer Rechargable Nickel-metal Hydride. Those give me at least 70 pictures on my memory card or about 8 three minute video clips. anyways, i powered the camera on, and it died. Tried it again, battery died, so I switched batteries to the other ones i charged also just hours earlier. They died also. Maybe this is dure to some Electro manetic field. i would not know what else to explain...don't say I didn't charge them correctly, because I have the Indicater light that tells me they're charged. That's not the case because I'm home now, and checking to see if moisture or humidty made it doe this....it turns on...no problem now. Batteries are find.........
I will try to go back, but I'm taking a few friends...anyone else from Houston Area interested in going next time I go....regardless I'll post update.

ActuallyI'll just copy and paste the info, but the link is to at least varify it does exist since I failed to provide photos, Which I will try to do again...
<b>Humble - 1960 Over Pass Area/Train Track </b> - The East 1960 overpass is now built over what was once a cemetery. The overpass was built to cross a set of train tracks. Workers dug up the cemetery and moved it to the woods beside it. Now It is a extremely evil area. Several business?s along the tracks have reported violent disturbances. There was a Putt Putt course along the tracks in the area that became a church, when the church would be closed in the night demonic screams could be heard from inside. The woods are very active as well, There are images seen floating through the woods as well as red lights, which are believed to be a gateway into pure evil.
<b>Humble - Old Golf and Games </b> - This area is now a church but was abandon for years only a haven to cults and ghosts. The ghosts here are the result of being disturbed by man moving their graves. About 97 percent of every sighting in this area the ghost appear as a rotting corpse. There?s a bench just outside the building where every night there a white figure that sits on the far side of the bench. The figure is that of a human. The corpse like ghosts can also be seen in the woods across from the building wandering through the turned over gravestones and fallen church. IF YOU ATEMPT TO GO TO THIS AREA PLEASE USE EXTREAME CAUTION, THERE HAVE BEEN MURDERS AND BODIES UNCOVERED IN THE WOODS.
<b>Humble - Old Dollar Theater </b> - This Theater is located along a area believed to be haunted by demons and demonic forces. It is part of the 1960 overpass haunting. The workers of the theater would be attacked by the evil entity. It would throw things at them and corner them with shadows. The theater was once blessed with holy water and a cross was put in the projection booth, but everyday the cross was moved from on booth to another unexplained. Some mornings the person who was opening would hear voices from the projection rooms, and footsteps outside the hall. There was one morning when the projectionist went in and found the word "SATIN" carved in the wall of projection booth 2, this booth was where most of the bang and violent attacks occurred.
nice experience man,if i were you i would pissed myself,im a coward for doing something like this alone,you are cool
I was looking around for other things about Humble history and ran across this newspaper article about a train wreck in Humble roughly about the same place in 1922 where 7 died that night and 8 more in the hospital the next day.. Could be adding to the activity there. http://www3.gendisas...c-1922?page=0,0
I was born in Houston and have been around the Houston/humble/kingwood area most of my life..the 1960 overpass has a lot of history to it..I've actually seen it on a "most haunted" list before. I am into paranormal activity and spirits etc. I had some experiences as a child and have always had odd things happen around me..I've been told there are not only haunted places but also "haunted people". When I was in college I did an extra credit assignment for a history project and we actually went to cut the grass at an old abandoned cemetary by the over pass..it is an old Negro cemetery. I have heard the stories of the theater and surrounding area but have never gone..I would love to check it out though!!!
i was wandering what did the church look like? me n some friends went to look for it a few times and all we found was a grave yard and some concrete walls that have fallen down. it kinda looks like a church because it has seats. we did not see a bench w/ a spirit on it or see a corps walking around like there is said to be. i was wandering if you culd help me out by lettin me no what it looks like. and have you ever ben to the theater? we tried to go but some people from panchos called the cops. we took a pic of the front of it and we saw a orb like face.-chris

I wish I knew of a very haunted place near where I live. The closest thing that happened to me was when I investigated at the manor with my diguital cam. I had 18 minutes of battery left when I arrived and no more than 5 minutes later it was dead. Not as strong as your thing but you get the point.
The manor is the only place where I feel nervous just like you. Even if I'm with several people, the place deeply affects me. At first when I went there it was ok but the more I went, the more uncomfortable I'd get. Today, I just have that feeling I shouldn't go inside again but for Christ sake, I'll do it.
That overpass looks purely freaking. I'd never go there alone.
I don't know if anyone is still interested in this discussion, but I've lived in Humble all of my life. I can almost tell you Humble's complete History starting from Pleasant Humble's ferry across the San Jacinto river. I live in the neighborhood behind what everyone is calling the old dollar theater. My grandfather was the principal at Humble Elementary School for over 30 years. (just accross the tracks from the theater on Charles street) I live two houses down from the house I grew up on in on 2nd street, in which (since I've been reading these posts on "The Evil Bypass") I saw described to a t in another post and reported to be haunted supposedly by someone who once lived there that "pictured an old white couple living there." (not true, my parents moved out of it about 13 years ago and we still own it and rent it out)(oh they are white lol)
Guys, the cemetery wasn't moved, the railroad tracks pre-date it, and my brother and I used to roll our tonka trucks, and ride our bigwheels down "The Evil Bypass" while it was still under construction. The cemetery is where its always been, they ran the bypass beside it in the mid to late 70's. I can still remember when they opened Golf n Games, (aka, the demonic church) it was the most awesome thing in my life at the time and I wish I had all the money back I spent there. For those of you who have trecked to the now famous spot I'm sure you noticed the small dirt road that runs beside it, (it goes to charles street, aka my hood) my uncle and his family lived in a trailer right across from the g n g parking lot. Not only did I stay in that trailer with my cousin (and never heard any screams) sometimes, me and my brother camped in the graveyard, sometimes together and sometimes alone and were never bothered by apparitions. I've slept in the concrete structure and had some of the best bb gun wars of my life in there. Went on my first snipe hunting expedition as well.
Back in the day, "The Old Dollar Theater" was THE theater in Humble. Before there was only the Jewel theater on mainstreet which burned down and now, only the sign remains as our own little historical marker. (theres a park where the theater was) The dollar theater was the amc 6, and the cruising spot for every sixteen to 20 y/o within miles. The Pancho's was Web's Liqour (where I got Earl Campbel's autograph, luv ya blue lol) and on down the sidewalk across the alley, we had a well beaten path through the weeds on both sides of the tracks to Golf n Games. They were the only hang out spots for kids, so we went back and forth like ants. No ghosts, no demons, no nothing. (I am a believer) but You're barking up the wrong tree. The reason I can tell you this (and this is funny) is because the stories I'm reading about are all variations of stories my older brother and his friends made up to scare me, then I embelished on and told to my younger brother to scare him and his friends. I don't know when people started throwing in the movie theater and golf n games, I still know people that worked there, and it's laughable. What's really laughable is that people are blaming the demise of the strip center on ghosts and demons, sorry guy's, it was development, it all started going down hill when Deerbrook mall hit the scene, at the same time, business went corporate rather than local, Highway 59 widened and the new investors went up and down it and the new 1960 bypass surrounding the mall, ie....Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Discount Tire, Home Depot, Bed Bath and Beyond, Chili's, the list goes on and on. I know this is boring, but sometimes I guess the truth is. As I said before, I am a believer, but the stories aren't true.
If anyone is interested, I can tell you about the "little girl" that someone in an earlier post said was killed there. She wasn't killed there she was dumped there and is the only true horrific story I know of about the cemetery, and I will only talk about it with respect as she was a friend of mine. I'm not trying to say anyone is not telling the truth about their experiences, but the mind can play tricks on people that are ready to believe, especially people walking in a wooded cemetery at night.
I'm willing to answer any questions anyone might have about the cemetery or any other place in Humble, I'm not trying to upset anyone, I think it's cool that its turned into this.

Hey, Stalker my home is near 4th street and I been near that dirt road going over the train tracks in order to walk to ponchos when I was little and not old enough to drive. I remember one time when I went that way I herd a tin can being kicked when I turned around nothing was their so I thought it was my imagination because I had just read the story's on Shadowland about the Overpass being haunted and me being a ten year old kid I thought it was just me letting my imagination running wild.
However,I also got a strange felling; when I went to the old Dollar theater in town it give me the creeps. Also, I remember going near bender high school it shame that the city doesn't keep that place nice looking it always gives me the creeps when I go pass it because of how scary it looks. I gave my sister my ghost hunting equipment to go their one evening and supposedly she got some interesting stuff but she didn't do her proper deduction silks thought.
I thought the jewel theater was the first theater in Humble, since I have someone who use to live in Humble who new John Lambert and was raised their she is like in her 80's know but it interesting to get to known the history of my town from her.
Oh and about the school things I would imagination every school has a few tells about the unexplained because Kids like to make up stuff to make their school look cooler.
There is a tiny splinter group, of course, that believes you can do these things. Among them are Texas oil millionaires, and an occasional politician or business man and they are stupid!"
