Jackson Area Hauntings
Reader Kimberly from Jackson offers some ghost stories from her area:
*Harts Bridge Road (South Jackson)
- Only a few years ago, a girl and her boyfriend were below one of the bridges on Harts Bridge Road, when her father caught them. Her father and her boyfriend got into a fight and her father pulled a knife and stabbed her boyfriend. After her boyfriend was taken to the hospital, she thought he was dead and jumped off the bridge and killed herself. Every now and then, if you go out there at night, you can see her ghost floating across the bridge.
*Bascom Road (North Jackson)
- There is an old concrete bridge on Bascom Road where slaves were hung. If you drive onto the bridge and stop, your car goes dead and will not start back up until someone walks across the bridge and back. As you get the middle of the bridge, no matter how hot it is outside, you will feel a very cold spot. So if you are ever on Bascom Road DO NOT STOP ON A BRIDGE.
*Britton Lane Battlefield (Denmark Tennessee)
- At Britton Lane Battlefield, if you go at night, after the battlefield is closed and sit outside for a while, you can hear the battle cries of the soldiers from the Civil War.
