I was curious if anyone on here from the East Texas area remembers hearing of these two places (located on an OLD county road near Linden, Texas) and
knows anything about them. I've done some searches for them but keep coming up with the same horrible story from a girl a few years ago.
If you haven't the slightest clue what i'm talking about I'll give a brief rundown, keep in mind the stories differ greatly about Lacies bridge.
Lacies Bridge: Supposedly in the early 1800's near the time when Linden was first established There was a wooden bridge that Lacie was murdered on,
the story varies from her being hung,thrown off, even thrown off while being pregnant. If you go by the latter, the story goes if you throw a rose
into the water below the current bridge you can hear her baby crying. Many people have reported seeing lacy late at night traversing the bridge and by
the waters edge and hearing the baby cry.
Also, further down the same rode ( i believe, I'm actually from their and lived on the road with lacies bridge when i was very young). Anyways,
further down the road is the witch's tabernacle.
Now this is an interesting place, next time I am down visiting I hope to drop by and get some pics. The tabernacle as it is called is an old cemetery
dating back to relatively the same time. It is said that witch's were hunted down and hung in an old tree and then buried, rather than burned. There
are pews and graves with capstones, some with chains(information relayed to me by a former classmate). There is also a circle in the ground near the
edge in the back where pretty much everything is dead....some people say it's this way yearly, other say it comes and goes. People report strange
things happening with their vehicles at night, ie battery dying, not starting, lights flickering. Others report hearing chanting and seeing
I hope to visit Linden this coming weekend or next and getting some pictures if I have the time.
Has anyone else ever heard of these places or are they just local myths placed on old areas of the town??
This is a link to a remarkably unbelievable recount of someone visitng the sites, it matches with much of what I have been told:
