Bragg Road – The Ghost Road of Hardin County

“Mysterious ghost lights haunt this isolated road in the heart of the Big Thicket.  A unique part of Hardin County is also one of its most mysterious, fascinating and out-if-way places: The Ghost Road.
The Ghost Road is situated in the heart of the Big Thicket. It begins at a bend on Farm-to-Market Road 787 that is 1.7 miles north of the intersection of FM 787-770, near Saratoga.

Trees growing on both sides offer a natural canopy as drivers travel down the long dirt road.  Its original name is the Bragg Road, named after the town that was in that area at one time.

The Tale of Roy Simms; the man who haunts the Texas A&M Animal Industries Building.

There are regular reports of the Animal Industries building at Texas A&M in College Station, TX, being haunted.  According to students and staff, the restless spirit of Roy Simms can be seen throughout the building.

“The basement used to serve as a slaughter house to teach students how to butcher meat. One day, one of the instructors was down there alone when he cut himself severely. His blade slipped and he severed his femoral artery and bled to death before help could arrive. Some stories say he dragged himself across the floor toward the elevator before he died, leaving a long blood trail behind him. Students claim to see apparitions and sometimes find unexplained dark stains on the floors of the building.

The other surveyed sightings below are of creature that looked like man-wolves but no one have seen one becoming another. Mrs. Gregg have not seen a man turned into a wolf but she has actually came closer then anyone else in telling a tale that sounds like a chapter from a werewolf novel than a real life experience.

Mrs. Gregg said that one night in 1958 when her husband was on a business trip, she moved her bed close to a screen window hoping to catch some cool breeze from a thunderstorm brewing on the south western horizon. She heard a scratching sound from the window shortly after she fell asleep. In a flash of a lightning, she saw a huge, shaggy, wolf-like creature clawing at the screen and staring at her with baleful, glowing, slitted eyes. She saw its bared white fangs.

Horrifying Creature on the road – East Texas

A man travelling through Texas recounts the time he saw a horrifying creature on the road.

“Okay, I have a story about a Skinwalker, a Sin-Eater, and a story about both together at the same time. I’ll start with the Skinwalker and maybe do the other two later on.
It was 1995, I had just graduated High School, an old friend who I haven’t talked to in 7 years now and I were hanging out and I said, “Let’s go to New Orleans.” And we did. We had $140 between us and back then that was more than enough. We made it New Orleans, almost died from culture shock, and turned around and headed to Magnolia, MS to get some sleep. We stayed at Magnolia Inn, it was a shit hole, but it was nice and cool. It was May or June, in south MS; cool was the only adjective that mattered. We stayed up that night playing poker, drinking Gordon’s vodka, and talking about who knows what. Probably girls, college, and college girls. At some point I said, “Ever been to Texas?” “Nope.” “Pack your bag and let’s roll.” We had a road atlas; Marshall, TX was right across the border from Shreveport.
