Marshall, Texas is home to Old Stagecoach Road, believed to be the remnants of a Caddo Indian trail. And many in these parts will tell you it is very haunted!
It has earned the name "The Scariest Road In Texas!"
By Lisa Lee Harp Waugh
Real Haunted Dirt Roads Are Texas Treasures
Growing up in Marshall, Texas you learn many things from the living. And from them you will come to know a lot more about the dead. Being brought up in The Most Haunted City of Texas is not simple if your in tune with the ghost that haunt it.
Another legacy that has been preserved is an original section of the OldStagecoachRoad. In Harrison County just outside Marshall are a number of sites worth more than one visit. Especially if you are interested in real paranormal activity and supernatural beasts ghosts and cryptids. Haunted locations along this area include Caddo Lake, Texas' only naturally formed lake, StagecoachRoad, four miles of beautiful sunken roadway located east off U.S. 59 at the end of Harris Lake Road, and T.C Lindsey's General Store in Jonesville. T.C. Lindsey and Company, celebrating its 150th birthday in 1997, is the location of half a dozen movies. It looks about the way it did in the days of mule-drawn wagons bringing cotton to the nearby gin - the last one in East Texas. But they that know it will tell you this is the most haunted stretch of road in Texas that one should could or ever travel.
Harrison County, Texas is said by many paranormal groups and investigators to be the most haunted county in the state of Texas. And if you visit you will soon find out why.
Many ghosts are thought to roam this haunted dirt road, as are strange creatures. These the likes of the many supernatural cryptids of Texas. As is the strange haunted Ghost filled Stagecoach that comes to take you to hell. Many locals will tell you they have encountered it in the dark of night, rattling down the road with it's spectral driver and ghost horses. This is way many locals in the area sometimes describe it as where life meets death.
One old Stagecoach Road superstition is that if your wanted by the police never venture on to this haunted cursed road. If you do you will be arested in less then an hour.
Many other old scary tall Texas tales tell of what not to and why not to venture to this very haunted back road. For one Death and assorted supernatural creatures and beast are said to be in wait to take you to hell. Friends in school would tell of how a blood sucking fiend was heard of on Stagecoach road or that a nest of impaled real vampires were buried there in deep dug graves along side the road.
As a childhood myself and many others were often told of werewolves running in packs, murderers lying in wait, and the Devil himself strolling down the road looking for a lost soul to take. Many of these tales and tall stories have become part of the roads many urban legends of today. Whether the tales are true or just something parents told kids to keep them from venturing out there late at night no one knows for sure.
The old Texas legend of the Goatman beast, Bigfoot and the el chupacabra are also thought to live here in the shadows. Many sightings of such have been known to have occurred of these strange supernatural blood sucking and dangerous beast near the city limits of Marshall, Karnack, Texas, Swansons Landing, Texas and Uncertain, Texas.
The city was founded in 1841 when Peter Whetstone offered Harrison County Commissioners land for a courthouse, a church and a school if they would only locate on his land in the middle of the county. Whetstone's offer was accepted, and by 1842 Marshall was the county seat. Civic leader Isaac Van Zandt named the town in honor of United States Supreme Court Justice John Marshall.
Marshall, the first town in Texas with a telegraph, providing a connection with New Orleans, thereby had one of the most important newspapers in antebellum Texas, The Texas Republican , published by fire-eating Robert Lowery. By 1860 it was one of the wealthiest, largest towns in Texas, home of the first - Edward Clark - and last - Pendleton Murrah - Confederate governors of the state.
Marshall was headquarters for much of the Trans Mississippi Department of the Confederate States of America, as well as the Confederate Capital of Missouri, adding a seventh flag to the six others that flew over the Lone Star State. Jay Gould brought the Texas and Pacific Railroad to Marshall in 1871 - lured by the promise of land and $300,000 from the coffers of the county. For a time, the T.&P. shops provided one out of every four jobs in town. Because Marshall also became a cotton-shipping center for East Texas, even more jobs were dependent on the rails. It was during the railroad era that many of the large homes and successful mercantile business were established.
The town was and remains an educational center, beginning with Wiley College in 1873, Bishop College in 1881- which later moved to Dallas, the College of Marshall (now East Texas Baptist University) in 1914, and Texas State Technical College in 1993.
As the cotton and railroad jobs disappeared, they were replaced by jobs in small manufacturing - particularly in the pottery industry. One pottery in 1848 has expanded to a dozen, including the Untied States' largest manufacturer of red clay pots. They are a major attraction for the growing tourist industry.
There are fifteen homes, churches, and commercial buildings on the National Register of Historic Places, and nearly 100 historic markers in the city and county. Many of these homes are noted as being the most haunted houses and buildings in all of Texas.
Caddo Indian spirits to the Civil War ghosts searching to find their homes is the real reason the city is thought to be very haunted. Since the late 1800's and as recent as documented in 1965 Texas' Caddo Lake and Stagecoach Road has had hundreds upon hundreds of alleged Bigfoot 'sightings' according to the Texas Big Foot Research Center (TBRC) as told on the Travel Channel 2006 Documentary "Bigfoot." It is also home to a ghost that is said to live in the lake and haunt it's shores.
The spirit of Caddo Lake is to believed to be that of a Lallorna or La lorna. It is perhaps the oldest and most widespread ghost or haunted urban legend in Marshall, Texas concerning Stagecoach Road. Her ghostly figure has been seen searching the shores for here drowned children. She is also known to walk the length of what is left to the original road and cry out in her sufferings. Many attribute the blue or white ghost lights that haunt this stretch to be associated with her haunting alone.
Many versions of La Lallorna's origin exist. Here is a comparatively common version. Maria (La Llorona) thought she was very beautiful, so she wanted the handsomest man to marry in Marshall. Once they were married they had a boy and after that a girl. Last they had another boy. Maria's husband started to work out of town for a month or so in Jefferson, Texas as a tax collector.
Her husband upon each of his short visits came to visit his children which he so dearly loved, but not his wife. He didn't pay attention to her. Once Maria's husband came to visit them, but he came with a woman that many believe was diamond Bessie herself. He talked to his children and told them he was going to marry this woman.
Maria was so mad that she got mad at her own children for no reason. So that's when she took them to the river and drowned them. Then she realized what she had done and started to cry for her children and killed herself.
Next morning a man from Marshall came with the story that he found Maria dead by the shores of Caddo Lake. So they buried her near Stagecoach Road in a family Cemetery. In the very middle of the night they heard a woman crying for her children and that's when they found out it was Maria's ghost. People then started calling her "La Llorona Of Stagecoach Road".
In Marshall there is the tale of the ghost lady and as some call her the "Woman In White". "The Crying White Lady Ghost will lead you to the newly dead in Marshall, Texas." "And she has been seen by many doing this for over 100 years!" " I personally know because I have witnessed her several times over the years." And many believe that she and her haunting originated on Stagecoach Road as a traveler that died a horrible death in a stagecoach accident on a terrible rainy night. Some locals will tell you "The White Lady of Marshall, Texas" is said to date back to a nurse of the Confederacy during the Civil War killed while traveling Stagecoach Road. Hallsville, Longview, Marshall, Scottsville, and Waskom residents often have reported seeing the lady in white. Many report that her ghostly apparition is more likely to be witnessed hours or days before when a great disasters strikes the area.
Stagecoach Road Marshall, Texas Ghosts And Paranormal Activity – Reports of the black spectral stagecoach drawn by four black horses are only recently surfaced since the birth of the internet. The exaggerated story and the reports of seeing it shaking and clattering down the old Texas dirt road to some is just an urban legend. But to those that have witnessed it it is a true nightmare to behold. Many say it is not a stage coach but a old wagon funeral hearse coach.
Marshall Texas Death coach is said to haunt Stagecoach Road. Many believe that the strange white lights that are seen and witnessed at night coming down the road are from the lantern that the hangs on the haunted funeral coach as it rushes through the night looking for souls to take. Many say Mr. Death himself is the driver.
The story goes that if you see it on the road then you are doomed to die. If you hear it it means says your prayers because it is there to take you away.
Another long tale is that many real zombies are buried along Stagecoach road. If you listen very hard in the dead of night you can still hear their animated limbs thrashing to be released from their shallow graves. It is also told by locals that farmers in the area buried huge coffin like boxes of the still wiggling limbs and body parts of their Zombies. Many still tell tales of how in the dead of night between the hours of 1- 2 AM people would bring also the unknown dead who died in town and bury them there. This was so they would not come haunt the living.
Stagecoach Road Marshall, Texas Ghost Photos
Is this photo taken by Randy Briers that of real ghosts that haunt Stagecoach road are they just a simple case of Pareidolia. See enlarged image below. Pronounced /pærɪˈdoʊliə/ - is a psychological phenomenon involving a vague and random stimulus (often an image or sound) being perceived as significant. Common examples include seeing images of animals or faces in clouds, the man in the moon, and hearing hidden messages on records played in reverse. The word comes from the Greek para- ("beside", "with", or "alongside"—meaning, in this context, something faulty or wrong (as in paraphasia, disordered speech)) and eidolon ("image"; the diminutive of eidos ("image", "form", "shape")). Pareidolia is a type of apophenia.
Briers in the enlagement above, believes he has captured a real photo of the Lallorna. A female crying ghost in his Stagecoach Road ghost photo.
The very strange lights of Stagecoach Road are thought to be similar to the famous Marfa Lights. The only difference is these balls of lights will hover around you in the dark and this is said to happen more so in the month of August. There are two distinctive types of lights the white and blue associates with the Lallorna or the lady in white and the red ones associates with the Goatman.
Stagecoach Road Ghost Lights Photo from Tamilia Easter Jackson.
Many will tell you strange lights or glowing red orbs tend to follow cars at night. Some think when they see them they are the eyes of the horrid Texas Goatman come to get you.
The Goatman is a hominid cryptid most commonly associated with Louisiana, Maryland and Texas. It is described as a hybrid creature; part man and part goat. Some claim it is a relative of the New Orleans evil chupacabra like cryptid the Grunch. The urban legends of them often tells of it killing young lusting couples in parked cars or scouring neighborhoods killing family pets. There are also tales of them breaking into peoples houses and usually the raping of it's victims. And many attest from the areas that he haunts, it does not matter if your a man or woman he will overtake you and have sex with you none the less.
Many believe this evil foul smelling creature haunts the entire span of Stagecoach road. "The Goatman beast of Marshall and Denton, Texas has a undying want for for sex." "It does not discriminate against just having it's way with man or woman or beast." "And often all are said to be equal prey as far as it is concerned." "Many liken the creature to being a 7- 9 foot tall Pan or devil like creature with red eyes and bluish skin." "With the body of a human being, and the horns and head of a goat."
Many distinctive cryptid's, ghosts and human like monsters are thought to haunt this lonely stretch year round . Many residents of the area will talk of the Ax Man's ghost who is said to chop off the heads of those alone at night.
There is also tales of a werewolf like beast that they call the creature of Stagecoach road. the only difference is this beast that haunts the road is only encountered on moonless nights.
Marshall, Texas Stagecoach Road Banshees are frequently described as dressed in all white or light blue or grey robes, and often having long, grey, black or wirey wild hair with bluing or purpleish skin. Mabny are said to haunt Stage coach road just waiting to claim it's next victim.
A prominent family in Marshall tells of a Banshee like being that visited several members in a family on a particular night in January 2008. 5 different households witnessed a blackish shadow robed and hooded paranormal being waking over 24 different family members that night across the town. The next day word came that a realative had died in Afghanistan at the very hour.
Stagecoach Day, held the third Saturday in May, has the flavor of the old West. Enjoy downtown art, craft and food booths, a transportation parade, horseshoe tournament, potluck cook-off, and performances by local musicians. The parade features historic and modern methods of transportation. The festivities are held on Old Courthouse Square in downtown Marshall. Contact Phyllis Bryan at (903) 935-7868 for more information.
Marshall – Stagecoach Road – Reports of the spectral stagecoach or funeral hearse coach and the dead driver coming to collect your soul and take you to hell might just be a real Texan Urban Legend. The talk of apparitions of men carrying the coffin with that of an undead zombie might just be nothing but a vivid imagination at work.
But in getting to the real things that haunt Stagecoach Road we can only investigate and find out the truth.

The Grove, a historic property in Jefferson, Texas.
The Grove is a private residence and tour home in the old Stephen Smith Land Grant section of town. The house was built in 1861 by Frank and Minerva Stilley.
It had one structural change in 1870, the addition of a room to join the detached kitchen to the house, and another change in the 1930's when an indoor bathroom was added and the side porch enclosed.
Other than that, the house stands pretty much as it did back in 1861. The house is listed on the National Register of Historic Places by the National Parks Service, and has been designated a Recorded Texas Historic Landmark by the Texas Historical Commission.
The house has been said to be one of the most haunted locations in the Lone Star State. The ghost stories go back over 100 years at this 1861 home, and the first indication that something odd might be happening there was in 1882 when a man named T.C. Burke purchased the home. He moved his family in, and had left within a month's time; the only explanation was, "We can’t live there..."
Prominent spirits are a lady in a white dress that always takes the same path through the house when she appears, a man in the garden who is often seen striding through the Lily beds as if late for an appointment, and a mischievous entity in the den that seems to be particular fond of the ladies.
A Guided Tour through one of the historical - and haunted - homes from Jefferson`s past...
Join us for an hour-long excursion into the historic old home that has been called "the most haunted house in Jefferson".
You`ll hear the fascinating history of this 1861 house, along with the true supernatural experiences of the owners.

Our tour guide seemed to be pre occupied with personal matters and not able to actually convey a good scary ghost tale. It seemed always sounding like she was reading something in a monotone voice and never broke from character.
Not only did the tour seem to, too scripted, it did not make myself or others on the actual tour feel like anything but as if we were attending a long boring lecture. But in the same vein it seemed very overly rushed. The way she rushed it seemed like she had to get the tour over quick because it was church baking night.
I would love to reassess this tour one day. But not to soon. It really made me feel talked down to.
This ghost tour it left me feeling like why did I take it in the first place. Historian Jodi Breckenridge in Jefferson Texas founded this ghost tour. She states on her web site that it is considered the most haunted small town in Texas thanks to Discover,Travel and Scifi channels. Not that anyone really considers their choices to be 100% accurate anyway.
This actual tour to me and those that were on it with me, felt that it fell rather flat. As our guide seemed to run through what seemed and overly rushed, and to overly rehearsed script.
It made us all want to go to Annie Skinners, just to deal with the real spirits and to forget the frighteningly horror of a a tour we had just been on.
But in defense of this tour i must say:
Or perhaps it was that the hype was too overrated?
Or maybe I just took the tour on a bad night for her.
Not to just say this tour is stale or the presentation is actually lacking.
Personally this tour disappointed me to the point of distraction.
Though on the other hand my daughter Mallory loves taking this great Texas ghost tour, and she recommends it highly!

ROBERT REPPERT, owner/founder of GOLD RUSH GHOSTS INTERNATIONAL PARANORMAL INVESTIGATIONS and the inspiration for the television show INVESTIGATING THE UNKNOWN (Channel 17 the 4th Wed. night of every month) has a motto he lives by, and it is “GOLD RUSH GHOSTS ~WHERE SCIENCE MEETS THE PARANORMAL.” Reppert has an extended history in research in all things paranormal which has extended for many years, starting in his teens.
I was 17 years of age and camping in the wood where a stream runs under a low small country bridge in the middle of a forest in California ” he told this reporter. My friend and I were just below the small bridge, which has just enough room for one car to pass. Camping that night we were, as all kids that age, looking for an adventure. This time we found one!
“The time was about 10:30 at night, and we were just getting comfortable laying out and hopping into our sleeping bags. We were just settling in, talking, telling tales and talking about girls as boys that age will do.
And then it happened.”
He stopped for a minute to recall in every detail of the events that followed. “It was not a well lit night, I can remember that, but there was enough of a moon that if you looked up you know what direction you were in. As we lay there talking my friend grabbed my arm and said ‘look…there!’ I am not certain if at that moment we were more curious, or frightened.
“Right before us coming directly upstream was a green ball about 2 feet in diameter. It came toward us slowly following the river’s path through the trees, inching its way in our direction from downstream. Without further conversation between us, we became still as lambs hoping it would not target or see us. As we watched, it made a slight turn for the right, and went slowly and directly under the bridge. Right in front of us and right after going under the bridge it quickly made a bee-line for the sky, going right overhead of us, faster than anything I had ever seen, and then it disappeared.”
The 17 year olds quickly packed up their gear and headed for home.
This was the incident however, to peak Reppert’s interest in all things strange and unknown. The next day he went back to that bridge to see if there was anything that would indicate what had happened the night before. All appeared to be normal. Over the years there have been several accounts such as his at this site. Recently, and once again, GRG/ITU investigated the same Bridge and forest area for our group and television show. The shots are there for you to see, activity was recorded, and yet the mystery remains.
Although the exact cause of this phenomena is still up for grabs Reppert knows he will solve this mystery, as well he has many others.
“I went into this business because it seemed that paranormal groups around here were looking for ghosts and goblins and werewolves and UFO’S and saying that everything they heard, explored or wrote about was phenomena. One group I can remember were media hounds, making a mockery of it all for the sake of publicity, giving falsified reports to television and radio stations, and an unsuspecting public. It really upset me, and I knew right then that there was a need for actuality in this business. It is certainly not a place for the novice, or person strictly looking for goose bumps out of boredom. There was a need for specifics and science to balance out the absurd. As we have now proven, the ratio is about one to every eight investigations that we go out on has a serious paranormal indication. The rest, through science and the best of all equipment we are able to assess as earthly explanation, and can put peoples minds to rest one way or the other. “
The bridge remains an enigma.
But being a paranormal investigator was not enough. Reppert had to have the BEST! He began investing in the finest paranormal equipment around, state-of-the-art, best in the world. Purchased equipment that proved to be bogus was quickly discarded. More was purchased. “I am always looking for the best there is” he told us. “I’m on a mission, and we are all about honesty.” Then a smile came over his face, “But don’t try and fool me with trying to sell faulty equipment” he said. “I clearly know the difference.” Today Reppert’s organization maintains over a million dollars (easy) of the finest equipment in the world, not to mention the equipment he himself has designed to hear, see and feel the spirits that are around. “If you have anything around you that is not of this living world” he said, “You can be certain we will find it.” Today Reppert and his organization can actually show you from your television screen where the ghosts and spirits are around you. He can show you with scientific equipment what EVP’s are actually from the other side, or which contain a different scenario of audio transference. “This phenomena, although I could go into a lot of theory” he said “Is where either the tape or digital recording transfers over to another place on the tape or digital file for just one explanation.” Another smile, “And then of course there are those that will say any noise is a “voice from the other side.”
Having a background in psychology, Reppert approaches the search with a logical point of view. “I have been researching the fields of Paranormal studies since before high school and have always been the one to look for the logical reasoning for what occurs in this world. I have also studied architecture, electricity, photography, building materials, and other things as a way of explaining some of the activity that may appear to be paranormal but has a logical explanation. Our group ONLY looks for and reports TRUTH. We are commissioned by government and private agencies to explore things that go bump in the night, as well as work with everyday folks in need of our services. In the world of paranormal groups on every site and street-corner, we stand out as reasonable, responsible, honest, and the oldest and largest paranormal group around.
Whether you see him in his “Ghost Mobile” Nissan truck, or the ‘Paddy car’, his 1951 Black Buick, Reppert can be an interesting person to be around. With a great sense of humor and excitement, he brings to the psychic/paranormal/ and still unknown world adventures of the spooky side. With one important bent… proving, TRUTH.
In PARANORMAL WORK with GOLD RUSH GHOSTS, that is a sure sign of FUN and ENLIGHTENMENT.
