Not claiming it is haunted, though listed as haunted. I just thought I would share about an area with many fatalities. From the map provided below, I have only shown 20% of the fatalies and deaths.
This is not a well known spot for Houstonions, though many know of Bear Creek Park, no one knows of it's history.
I have hiked through this area, and such a strange feeling to stumble across an opening in the dense forest where it has been cleared out that a town once resided.
Bright yellow square: Around 200 years ago, this land was part of a community, a town, cemetery, church, and a thriving town.
Dim yellow square : The Bluelight cemetery.
The Church (is now historical marker) located on I-10 and Park Row, caty-corner to the Sam's Club.
As anyone that has driven down this dark strecth of Eldridge Pkwy, knows that there are crosses everywhere from fatalities.
Red Squares on "Eldridge Pkwy"- represent deaths by car crashe occured this past year, last one happend 2 days ago and always head on. Furthest red square down was from a murder. I was there when the police removed the body. Victim was a female doctor that was carjacked. Body was left to decompose for about 1 month before it was found.
I too smelt the decomposing body driving home everynight from my ex's house, disregarding it as roadkill, but smell lasted too long.
Note: Crashes increased after murder.
Blue Square : haunted bridge of Patterson Rd.
Houston - Patterson Road - Patterson Road is located between Highway 6 and Eldridge in Houston. This place is rumored to be the site of a Civil War battle and the bridge closest to Eldridge is haunted. If you park in the center of the bridge and turn your car off there will begin to be tapping noises all over your car. They aren't just the sounds of your car settling. They are mostly on the sides and the back of the car. It is said to be the spirits of the soldiers who died. Be careful, this road is absolutely pitch black at night, however you can see cars coming from either direction at quite a distance.
Large Purple Square : Where the Civil war battle occurred.
Second picture, is of the cemetery itself. It is fence in , and the actual size of cemetery is unknown. There is only one visible headstone. The others were damaged over time.
