There used to be this subdivision that I grew up in and around in Bridgeton, MO called Carrollton. I say used to because they took it out to expand the darn airport in St. Louis. Anyway, up on a road called Gist Road there was a fairly tight curve and iot was always said that a teenage couple crashed the car they were in into the dirt at this curve and that the girl would roam around looking for her boyfriend on fullo moon nights. I know that there was a bad accident there a very long time ago and I do remember some of us would go up on full moon nights trying to see if we could see the girl. We never saw her but always had very weird feeling when we were there. It was always hard to explain to someone the feelings we had when we would be dumb enough to go and always around midnight. Crazy teenagers we were.

I know that feeling and I like it! My cousins and my brothers and I would love to play hide and seek in the cemetary around the corner from my grandparents home. At night.

After we we moved we found a mansion called Kimberly crest in Redlands. Hell night the movie was filmed there. There was a story about the house. A couple with I think three kids lived there. One of the children was mentally handicapped and treated horribly by the parents. One night the boy killed his entire family. They never found him but say he roams the acres of orange orchards that surround the mansion. There is aslo a bamboo room he used to hide in. Its a circle opening in the middle of a bamboo field. So at night we would go up there and roam around the orchards. My husband and his friends did the same. They acutaully had someone yell " get out of here" and chase them off. Soo scary. Those were good times!

For your late night entertainment, I provide you with the following two links...

Read them only after midnight...
when the full moon illuminates the draperies...
the wind softly blowing in...
the shadows of the draperies dancing upon the floor...
your reading light flickers...
you hear a floor squeak, faintly, down the hall...

these 'people',,, they just may be related, then again, maybe not,,, only the shadow knows...

The light began in the field, then moved across and up the road toward our vehicle. As it got nearer, I got nervouser (new word?). Just in front of the car, it suddenly climbed higher in the air, then split into 2 lights and vanished over the top of the car. Just for the record, there were 4 witnesses and NO! we had not been drinking! There used to be a family-owned museum out there, but it is closed. The AC of E never could explain it, and it remains a mystery. Because of increased development and new roads it is hard to find the original location today.THE HORNET SPOOK LIGHT


Let's hear the haunted house stories!
I can't wait to see the Spook Light again if I get a chance to go back. I also heard it's getting harder to see it. Great info post!

It is getting harder to see because of the large amount of foot traffic and noise. Partiers walk up and down the road drinking and laughing. Not real conducive to paranormal activity. Also, the new Downstream Casino lights can be clearly seen from the road which really messes up your night vision.

Thats too bad. Someone always has to spoil it for the rest of us. Part of the fun was in being really quiet, and the anticipation. Glad I got to see it way back in the 70's. It was down the road aways, and then went left and traveled around the field. Amazing!
