Real Haunted Houses

Real Haunted House

Hell’s Gate

Oxford, Alabama

The bridge has earned this name because it is said if one stops on the bridge and turns around, the road behind him looks like the fiery gates of Hell. Many years ago, a young couple lost their lives on this bridge. On a dark night, if one stops on the bridge and turns off all the lights, a member of the couple will get into the vehicle, leaving a wet spot on the seat.

As far as looking like Hell’s gates this was true, however construction in the area has cut down the main tree that gave the effect.

hells gate is now closed due to construction so you cant get to it from any roads that i know of. Its on the other side of the interstate from cracker barrel and lonestar located on the road near the old davidson plantation house.

I know exactly where this place is. I live like 5 minutes from this place. The plantation always used to decorate for christmas and it was legendary for the decorations but they stopped ever since the old woman died. It is really scary when there are no lights on and you drive up in there. I don’t know about the bridge that is in front of it but i know that there are some weird things that go on at the house.

Hell’s Gate – OMG- The Devil actually grabbed us by the hair and took us straight to Hell ! Trust me it was not worth it ! We had to fight the devil to get out before the gate shut ! When we actually got out not only did we look behind us and see it but it followed us all the way home ! We called the police but he just hung up on us ! Finally, somone else pulled up at Hell’s gate , so the devil left us to get them ! We are so thankful that the devil got those other people!

I’ve been close to it. We went to a place on Green Mountain Hwy that was supposed to be haunted. What’s weird is one story about Hell’s Gates that I heard later actually happened to us. A truck came while we were walking back to the road, went passed where we walked in several times, and when we got to the trucks to leave, it vanished. I was telling a friend about it when I got home, and she told me the story about that, and I got back in my car and locked the doors. And I guess I should add that I was in my own driveway, thats how bad it scared me.

This is the story of a little kid and his bird.
This might sound cheesy to yall but i promise that this is
a true story…when i was just 9 years old i lived in a small
town.. hucksin county…no one has ever heard of it im sure…
anyhow…becuase my town was so small everything was real
close so i was able to ride my bike everywhere. i was
comming back from the vet one day with my bird
(super doidley…hey i was young) when i hit a speed bump
too fast and the bird cage fell off my handle bar… i went to
grab it but i was too late and a car hit my bird. Darn clear
smashed the whole cage! Didn’t turn round neither!
My bird, my bestfriend untill then was dead… i was so upset
i left my bike and carried his dead body all the way home
running and crying!…well about 2 months later my super
Doidley became “supernatural doidley”…all night all i heard
was shakeing in my closet and squacking! tweet tweet SQUWAK!
I ran down to my mama and cryed each night and the night
it was the worst out my window under my bed and in my
closet again my mama let me sleep with her… when i woke
up my mama tryed to smuther me with a pillow!! no lie!
when my daddy stopped her i swear i saw my bird in her eyes!
it was like revenge or something!…never been so scared in
my life!…i now live with my daddys mama…and i still hear
tweet……..tweet……SQUWAK!! everytime i go to visit
my mama…she’s never been the same.

Hey Laura,
You don’t need roads to get to Hell’s Gate, why don’t you just walk there, unless you’re afraid your going to get chased down the hill by a ghost car. I have been to Hell’s Gate and I think it’s pretty cool, I even took pictures and there’s a weird blurr in every single one, one looks like the grim reaper, and all the other ones look like the jersey devil. Either it’s my camera or something weird is out to get me.

There is a catch to the story, if you go there with Chuck Norris, the gates will show up, than freeze. The devil will come out, but Chuck Norris will only roundhouse kick him in the face. If you dont run, Chuck Norris will get you next. ; )

I just want to say i think its interesting to read some of these things. I live in a small town in Florida, where nothing like this usually happens. although when i was a kid there was an old house in my hometown that me and my friends swore was haunted. we would walk by there everynite and see what appeared to us then to be candle light in the windows. we were so scared we would take off running. When i was older we stopped by one day and there was an older couple in the house and they were repairing it, They let me come inside and i looked around, when i told them about my childhood fears, they laughed. I felt crazy but its still something i will never forget. Just wanted to say this to anyone who is interested. Sometimes things are’nt what they seem to be. Take care to all who read this.
