Witnesses have reported seeing apparitions of slaves around the forest and the surrounding swamp area. Some say the slaves stem from slave abuse that used to occur here, as well as slave masters’ affairs with slaves that yielded babies who were promptly drowned in the swamp.

  1. If you go down old furnace road and stop at the graveyard you might see apparitions walking through the graveyard. Sometimes you will actually hear the voices of them as they hide from you behind the tombstones. True story
