Welcome to UM grutheeford3, Not trying to discourage you, but the house in the photos was not built in the slave days. Just a few clues; indoor plumbing, assault shingles, drywall, electrical conduit, and junction boxes, fiberglass insulation, etc. Cool Story.

I figured that, I thought maybe the house had been renovated. The cabin outside of the house by the trail fit everything I'd heard of the real "Goatman," so I figure there's gotta be some sort of truth to it. Do you have any idea what decade it fits best?

It seems to me that the most likely explanation is that its just another ramshackle turn of the century house. You mention at least three separate, very different tales regarding the "goatman" and his untimely demise. He was lynched off the bridge, no, wait - he was run off the bridge, no, wait he was really Irish. And then the bigfoot stuff? What you actually have evidence of is 1. An old dilapidated house 2. Woods surrounding said house 3. A bridge 4. The indomitable tendency of people to spin yarns and ghost tales, and the tendency of those stories to get more and more ...

Trust me I don't believe that it was Shamus or Oscar since there was no record of either of them, and secondly I found no record of any violent act of anything on the Bridge except for a shootout which is actually documented. I probably should have stated I do not believe in bigfoot. I just think what I was trying to do with my post is say that the legend itself shouldn't be taken so seriously, and I was trying to disprove certain aspects to the story, like Oscar and the lynching off the Bridge. I really am open to any holes in the post or story, as I am always in the process of fig...

It kinda seems like from what you put in your post that you do hold certain beliefs about the area. So which is your final position? Just trying to clarify........

I believe the area is haunted. That is just based on my personal experience for personal reasons. Historically, the place is hard to go back and look at because it is so old. From what I can find, only the lynchings and the farming of goats come out as true. I think it is a possibility that any haunting out there is either black magic, or any of the lychings. I believe that the Goatman himself may have possibly been lynched, but I have no evidence to back it up. I think the place has a tragic enough past to say that it can be haunted due to the lynchings.

If you believe its haunted, thats cool. No problem with that. You probably just shouldn't say that its because of any kind of evidence. Even if there were lynchings in the area - there is no proven correlation between lynchings and hauntings.

Not to mention, if he was lynched in 1938, he probably wasn't a slave. Cool story though. Although I think it's important to point out that there are dozens if not hundreds of similar stories about bridges around the country.

Its a beautiful area, and that house is pretty amazing. You should take the pictures as keepsakes, since the bridge means so much to you. I'm a bit on the fence about believing in ghosts, but who knows why some areas are haunted. The satan worship, however.... Its possible you have seen people, but that place has a reputation and it could be others looking for a thrill, or, more likely, troublemaking teens who love going to those spooky abandoned places. I have a feeling people might go out there in robes to freak people out. Real satanists do not wear robes or conduct spooky rituals at...

Very interesting story It's got a bit of a Lovecraftian ring to it, and I enjoyed reading it Hmm. Very likely, but it's not as clear-cut as that. Although slavery was abolished in the US in 1865 (I believe?) I recall watching a Trevor Macdonald documentary where it was revealed slavery actually continued alive and well until relatively far into the 20th Century... Just it wasn't legal.
