  1. So I grew up in Smithville Texas and just returned here as well, and I had to go back to MoFo bridge and GOOD GRIEF, I forgot how scary that bridge is and the woods that surround it a good mile or more stretch of shadow, watchers, screaming , whistles being returned, which would suggest a bad omen buuuut I kept doing it, and even did it again at a really old and reallllllly mangled cemetery not far from the bridge either , and again it whistled back… there is a group of four of us that can just conjure up stuff, like we don’t mean to we start talking about it and Bam it happens. Anyway, the bridge , there is a heartbeat at the bridge sometimes in the day always at night. What I heard in school was. it was a path associated with the underground railroad. If you go just south of the bridge the woods change, it wants to consume you almost. I would be happy to give you detailed directions and go back to snap tons of pics and videos too. Just let me know !!

    Oh one other thing, My dad owns an old bank here is smithville and the top floor is the original hospital. three or four rooms the operating table is still there along with the drain in the floor and the original doors and wording on the doors.. tons of paper work too. Old bank loans for like 3 dollars from the 20’s and what not. Again happy to let someone investigate there as well.

  3. Vicky Lynne that sounds like a super cool adventure. Do you own old land propertys too? Where is the bank located at? I love paranormal stuff and old vintage buildings. Let me know if we can come out to smithville to see it..
