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. 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 night ... [More]

Very interesting story It's got a bit of a Lovecraftian ring to it, and I enjoyed reading it 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. 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... [More]

In regards to the abandoned house discussed in this thread, besides the building materials not being correct for the suspected period, aerial photos from 1968 clearly indicate there was no house at the location when they were taken. The oldest available satellite photo that the house appears in is 1995, therefor the abandoned house was built between 1968 and 1995 and couldn’t be part of the "Goatman" legend. Sorry to burst any bubbles, but knowing the truth is more important.

That the house was that of a slave owner is belied by its relatively modern stick-built construction: the photos show (apparently) standard dimension milled lumber and plasterboard, two construction materials which I believe weren't in use before the Twentieth Century. Edit: Should have read to the end of the thread, evancj and lyrxst beat me to it.

I know this is an old thread but I checked out this house and I believe it fits the time period when a gangster with the last name noble ran gambling houses in southern Denton county and the interior certainly fits or it may be from a different group in the 70s that ran that racket

Research threads never get to old to respond too. If the Noble your talking about is Herbert Noble, he was killed in 1951 and the house in question was built after 1968.

Clearly this is a sasquatch ghost.

I know this thread this pretty old but Ghost Adventures did an investigation at Old Alton Bridge aka Goatman's Bridge in Denton, tx you can find it on youtube. .They said people would walk into the woods and go missing, There is a spirit there called Stevie. I found this website she was on the show even her friend too. http://www.becksghosthunters.com/p/old-alton-bridge-ghost-tour.html They are saying Stevie is D.C.Stephenson which there is no way, he died in Jonesborough, Tennessee and the Bridge is in Denton, tx that is a 14 hour road trip. The name Stevie sounds to me like a younger boy or ... [More]
