At River Legacy Park are several places rumored to be haunted. One of them is Hell’s Gate, along a shady trail through swampland. Local legend has it that it was along this trail that captured Union spies were marched on their way to be hanged. Here, phantom sobs and prayers are heard, and along the walkway folks have seen an apparition of a Confederate general with red hair. Another spooky spot at the park is known as Screaming Bridge, where a carload of football players is said to have crashed head-on with another car and burst into flames, falling off the bridge to their deaths. The road is now closed to cars, but some reports mention seeing a mysterious fog and glowing tombstones in the water under the bridge, bearing the names and death dates of the deceased. A ghostly hobo also is said to walk near the railroad tracks in River Legacy Park. According to the local tales, he was shot when he saw a man beating up a woman and stepped in to break it up. He appears as an old man in rags.
