And guess what??? It was only a like 15 mins from my hotel. Oh man!!! Could it get any better!!!!
This was the site of an Indian massacre where the victims were buried. No one is certain how many of the victims were buried at the site. (White’s grave at nearby Oakwood Cemetery is also haunted and yes....I totally went there) There are many other unmarked graves at Shoal Creek. Many victims of cholera and yellow fever were hastily buried at the Creek. These include soldiers who camped at the creek during the Civil War, and those who served with General Custer during his Reconstruction occupation of Austin. Most of those bodies were later removed and reburied at Arlington National Cemetery, but about 35 graves were never found. Then, in April 1915, a flash flood took even more lives along the banks of Shoal Creek. They report that bones were exposed from unmarked graves. Easy place to investigate because it’s a public park and open to everybody. They also have markers at the haunted sites! However, curfew is 10PM.
Now, Mr. Gideon White decided to build his log cabin close to the springs near Shoal Creek in 1839. After a few years of peace, Native Americans attacked and killed White in 1842. He and many other spirits are said to linger around the creek bed. So go at your own risk. Risk...... what is that???? lol
Now, this place is beautiful! The trees were starting to change colors and the night was very quiet and peaceful. Long winding paths through the trees and squirrels just sitting along the side of the pathway just watching as you pass. Not the kind of night or place you could picture all the horrible things that happened here. It was already late when I arrived so I didn't have a lot of time. So I put as many small pieces of equipment as my pockets would hold.......including a camera (of course) and a recorder. (I never leave home with them. lol)
Below is a quick video I put together of some of the EVP's that I captured. Some good, some not so good. But let me tell you.....I will go back and NEXT TIME I will stay after dark and have lots more equipment!
I really didn't get anything in my pictures but here are a few just so you can see what it looks like.
Have a great rest of the week everyone and get ready for the cold weather!!!! buuuurrrrrr
