shannonm940 Posted December 11, 2009 #76 Share Posted December 11, 2009 The story is that Klansmen raided the house of the Goatman, Oscar Washburn. He sold goats in our area for an extremely good deal in the 1940-1960s. Klansmen heard of the sales being made by the African American man so they lynched him on the rafters of the bridge. The family found his body and buried his body in an unknown location so that the grave wouldn't be disturbed. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
