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.

Laura says:

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.

ray says:

December 23, 2005, 11:56 pm

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.

hey britt, if you think were all idiots than be careful because allour idiot typings might rub off on to your computer screen. : B (: B means caution idiot typing may jump out of the computer screen, pounce on you and suck out your life forces and make you bald. which for britt is a good thing.)

melanie says:

or ( : ) means bald brittney coming from baldville oh…. i am afraid of of a bald a*@hole who doesn’t care if she rips out someones heart, throw it to the ground and crushes it with her big feet just because they wanted to tell someone about his dead bird

I recently moved to Arizona, and while I was back home in Oklahoma during the holidays some friends had asked if I have been to Hells Gate. Well, I’ve never even heard of it then, and I sure as hell didn’t know where to find it. Once I was back in AZ I began researching the myth and its location. I must admit, this site and your postings have educated me the most. Thanks to all of you I know the location, and I have learned to take Chuck Norris inside a bird cage and toss him off my bycicle once I’ve stopped on a bridge while fleeing from a ghost car that’s coming down the mountain. Just one last question! When I stop on the bridge to look back at Hells Gate, do I look over my left or right shoulder? Thanks for all the postings, hope all is fine! Got to go, Mr. Norris has just arrived.

MercyMe says:

May 5, 2006, 1:13 am

The road the bridge is on is called Boiling Springs Rd. I have been over, around, and under that bridge many times. My grandmother was agood friend of Mrs Davis and we visited often. I played on her property many times,I almost never had a problem. The bridge is creepy (I used to take my daughter there as my mother did me), but thats not the worst part. The buildings on the side of the road has something in them. When I was about 8 or 9, we (my g-mother and I) went to see Mrs Davis. I was playing out side over by the buildings. I felt strange and looked up towards the opening of one of the buildings. What I saw nearly brings me to tears even now (I’m 30 years old!). I saw a man in a blue suit standing there but he had a bulldogs head. I ran as fast as my legs would carry me back to the house crying for my g-mother. I told her what I had seen in front of Mrs Davis. They didn’t seem surprised, and Mrs Davis told me not to worry about it, that if I “let him alone he would let me alone”. I had nightmares for over a year. And I never played near those buildings again. When driving by though I always looked at the opening to see if he was there. I have not seen it again. I could tell ya’ll stories of those hills…..there are many “things” over there.

Vicki says:

May 16, 2006, 11:58 pm

I noticed Ray said if you go to hell’s gate with Chuck Norris, the gate will freeze instead of burning and Chuck will beat up Satan! Are you serious? That’s cool!

I grew up in Oxford and have been over this bridge many, many late nights. One night I was driving, a friend was next to me and two other friends were in the back seat. It was raining like crazy and honestly anytime you drove over that bridge (day or night) it was scary cause it was so old and rickety…at night it was super scary because the creek would always have tons of fog which would just elevate the fear level…but that night…with the rain pounding down, as I drove over the bridge I got a serious case of goosebumps and I looked up into the rear-view mirror and I swear I saw a third *person* in the backseat between my friends. It was a male, obviously dead and in a serious state of decay – and yes he was soaking wet – I screamed, gunned the engine and proceeded to freak out. I never drove over that bridge again, day or night for any reason whatsoever.

And btw – for those of you in or around Oxford – Cheaha has a ton of ghosts, (if you go on the trail to Bald Rock at night with no lights, you will often find a Native American companion to *guide* your way..) also there used to be an old bakery in North Anniston at the north end of Noble Street (almost to the cemetary) where a man got in an argument with his son, shot him and then turned the gun on himself – you can still see him from the second floor window watching for his son to come home, and lastly – Cold Water Creek has two very young and confused 1983 4 teenagers were out four-wheel driving in early winter and their Jeep got stuck in some muddy water…two of them left to get help and left the jeep running so the other two could stay warm, when they got back to the jeep the two boys in the back had died from carbon monoxide poison…my belief is that they don’t know they are dead and remain there waiting for their friends to come back…

Happy Haunting…er Hunting…

Savannah says:

October 7, 2006, 4:02 pm

hell’s gate… bull it is just a bridge that is now closed down i have spent several nights with my friends on it waiting for something to happen, however if you want to find out for your self… you have to be in oxford and there is a house that is always decored for chirstmas, well until the lady died the other year, you go down the new by-pass till you get to the oxford exchange right across the street there is an old old road with the only thing you can see is a feild a big house and maybe some old chicken house things, you go down past the house, around the curve and there you go watch out for bunnies and deer though, you can’t park on the bridge now, but you can park beside and walk up!

Michael says:

October 9, 2006, 9:10 am

I’ve lived and grew up in Oxford, when I had just turned sixteen, I had my first car accident on Boiling Springs RD, where the bridge is located, right after crossing over the bridge. I’ve always heard stories of that place when I was younger but that night, I thought I saw someone in the road, and hit an embankment on the other end of a sharp curve, and crawling out of my truck all I could think about was getting away from that area. There are lots of places like that in Calhoun County, there’s the bridge in Dearmanville, the old cobblestone mental institution in Anniston, the factory in Jacksonville, lots and lots of the plantation homes all over the county. I love Alabama!!!!!

monica says:

It’s a load of bs, the bridge is not haunted. The plantation house isn’t haunted. The lady that live in that house died, and the only reason it was decorated for the Christmas holidays was because the city did it for her. Her husband used to do it, but he died and she couldn’t do it, that’s why the city did it for her. There’s nothing scary about the bridge, unless you’ve got another car waiting on the other side not paying attention to you coming over it and you have to back up.

christina says:

October 19, 2006, 2:46 pm

whatever all this stuff is is a joke hahahaha oh im scared

Believer says:

October 23, 2006, 7:25 pm

Well that’s not the complete truth. I’ve lived in Oxford 37 years and the bridge is not haunted. Went over it more times than I could count and at all hours.—-Ms. Davis was not “allowed” to decorate her house for Christmas when her husband lived. I’ve known Ms. Davis for a long time and my sister-in-law helped decorate the inside of her house for her. Hired help and friends did the outside. The city didn’t do squat. When Mr. Davis died she added slowly to her house each Christmas, because it was a joy to her and she could. Her husband was an awful man.

Anyone know about the old cobblestone asylum in Anniston next to the high school?I’m interested in finding info on it. =)

John says:

October 25, 2006, 9:26 am

whatever, believe it or not, the bridge is located on Boiling Springs Rd in Oxford, AL near to the new Oxford Exchange they just built.

caleb says:

October 25, 2006, 2:10 pm

well i went that so called hells gate and turned me lights off. and nothing happened so i thought i werent true then i looked in the back seat and saw a wet spot and thought gosh, this thing really works then when i get to the house i was bout to pick my brother up out of the back seat, the reason for this is that he has palsy and cant move very well, and noticed he had a wet spot on the front of his pants he moved over in the seat in order not to sit in a puddle and that is what got my seat wet. I think this whole thing is jest Hogwarsh!

Joe says:

October 26, 2006, 3:00 pm

The hells gates in hunstville are not there. People are full of sh** I`ve looked up and down Green Mountian and found nothing. The closest thing I`ve found was and old set of small gates so I stoped and whent behind them and there is no mansion. So the story of the suposed gate is not real. The only way I would belive there real is if someone gave me directions to were there are so i can see this suposed mansion with my own eyes. Anyone that knows were the are would you please post directions. Thanks.

Boots says:

October 31, 2006, 10:13 pm

December 21, 2006, 10:19 pm

More than once I eaten my boogers…more than once I have liked it. Oh yeah, and this is a TRUE story…brace yourselves, everyone. One day my husband was probably about 15 or 16 he was living with his grandmother…well he was in his bedroom all alone, and I guess the timing was right because he began to touch himself where he pees…you know what he was doing…well, then his grandmother knocks on the door just as he was finishing, you know one of those knock open moves people do…they knock as they open the door…well, he finished and didn’t know what to do so he ate his own juices!! I know, scary, huh?

Dude it that couple got in my car I’d be like sup doo and shake their hands.

Christina says:

March 11, 2007, 4:42 pm

Hells Gate is real but only if youve done numerous wrong things in your life my stepmom dustie said that she did something so wrong that when she went to the bridge of hells gate she could hear the suffering and screaming of the ppl in pain so my advice for you is dont go there if you like to sin

Sparkster the Rocket Knight says:

March 12, 2007, 3:27 am

Hold on.. One of the couple will get into the car and leave a wet spot on the seat..

Are they suggesting that this two who supossdedly haunting this place like to go and use the bathroom on people’s seats? If so then eww!

Either way, I’d still be freaked (If not frustrated with ghost pee as if my stupid dog peeing everywhere wasen’t enough)

Oh and Christina don’t me tell me that now I’m really freaked about taking my Attack Squad there.
Why? Cause, if you have to sin or in other words be mean, then I’d definatly see the Gates of |-|ell(Grr have to spell it like that to make sure it actually goes through) cause I tend to get alittle.. ..’Abusive’… To my fellow Rocket Knights sometimes..

The directions to Hell’s Gate by Joceeghost are directions to Green Mountain in Huntsville. Green Mountain is easy to find if you can find Juniper Road. I grew up that way and we used to go up there. Strange Klan meetings and such are the danger up there.
Hell’s Gate is the Davis mansion, closer to Oxford, near Boiling Springs Road. I don’t know how to find it. Everybody needs to download Google Earth.

How do they know that Hells Gates are fiery?

shelby says:

August 17, 2007, 7:34 am

All the hype about Hell’s Gates on Green Mountain near Huntsville is strictly a myth. That property is simply vacant land presently surrounded by other properties that are occupied, and the residents are really tired of trespassers coming there. Not long ago trespassers started a fire in the hunting cabin on a property adjoining that property and it burned to the ground. If firefighters had not shown up, a colossal wildfire would have threatened surrounding houses. The iron gates (not so tall at all) are broken down (by trespassers) and many trees had to be cut to contain the fire. There are no ghosts, no mansion, not even a house on the property, and nearby residents usually know when trespassers are poking around up there. There are bluffs and poisonous snakes in abundance on and near the property, and if an accident or a bite occurred, it would be difficult to get one out for help. Law enforcement officers are well aware of any activity going on because they are immediately informed when residents are aware of it.

It is located right off of I-20 near the new Home Depot and Old Navy shopping plaza. It is behind the big house across the street from that plaza. It is a public bridge and not on private property. The only truth to this story is that it looks like the gates of hell. I have taking people to that bridge since 1990; scaring the **** out of them! Good luck if you visit and have a great time.

I still haven’t found this Hell’s Gates. Me and a couple of my friends went up too 7 gates of hell late last night. We walked down the trail for a bit but however my cousin had called me today saying that about a month and half ago some people had got lost up there and freaked out. So they decided to catch the M Fer on fire. So the 7 gates don’t exist anymore. If any of you guys happen to have the directions too Hell’s Gates. Please tell me how to get they. If I don’t respond on this site. Try to reach me on my myspace. It is .
i would deeply appreciate it.

You can’t tell stories. Try harder next time make me scared next time. If you don’t tell me another story ( that is really terrifing) I will write more about this subject. If don’t tell better stories I will call 911.

I went 3 nights ago, it is a freaky place to hang out though. Nothing happened to any of the 5 seats but we did hit 60 degree cold spots in 75 degree weather near and on the bridge. The person who did the graffiti on the road is very talented and did a great job. If you need directions to it either talk to me on AIM: dirtydime03, Yahoo: bamaboy_14, or email me at I will definatly be returning to this place to check it out even further and possibly check out the plantation.

Lynn says:

October 26, 2007, 1:57 pm

That is weird because I am from Birmingham, Alabama and they claim there is a bayview bridge (by where I live) that you go to the end of it and turn around and you are suppose to see the ghost of a woman looking for her child (her and child went off bridge in car and died) and when you go back across the bridge there is suppose to be a wet spot in your backseat where SUPPOSEDLY she rode in the car with you back across….

This is why I dont believe in Ghost is because every ghost stories seems to have the same plot.

Wow I went there last night, with about 8 of my friends, We all got so scared, we didnt even make it down the trail to the old mansion. 6 of us went back to the car and locked all the doors. The other 2 kept going, and got so lost and scared I actually saw 2 17 year old boys almost in tears.
We are going to go back more prepared and with more time.
The rocks with all the graphiti and the old tractor were enough to scare me, haha.

I have crossed this bridge many times, it is located rigt off I-20, at the Oxford Exchange exit, just a little ways past there on the right is the road you used to turn on, but I think construction has blocked that road, now. I have always felt that it was just plain out scary at night. I have also heard that if you stop, right before you get on the bridge, at midnight, on Halloween night, you will see a school bus full of kids start across it, and then the bus plunges over the side of the bridge, and you can hear the kids screaming, as it does so.i have never witnessed this but i had a friend that says they did.

It’s great to see there are still places in this world that don’t have cookie-cutter neighborhoods, home depots, buger kings, targets and applebee’s choking the culture and identity out them. That is exactly why “small town florida” didn’t have similar stories growing up….too busy eating at Macaroni Grill and shopping at the newest Costco.

Good stories…thanks.

Hell’s Gate no longer exist they tore it down ,, i went there when i was a teenager and never had anything happen ,i’ve lived in alabama all my life ,,, it was off where they put the oxford exchange an old iron bridge you use to be able to turn off a rd the was to the right when you were getting off the interstate coming from oxford and take a short cut to friendship from there and go past an old 2 story plantation house ,,but i guess for reasons unknown they decided to tear it down because it was abut to fall in …

mike laros says:

April 28, 2008, 9:27 pm

the bridge has not been torn down,i was there april 24,08.the bridge has been blocked off but you can walk across it.didn’t see anything that would lead me to think it was haunted.the old house is beautifull,but it and the land are in the middle of a gigantic court seems the mean old mr. davis had another family in florida that was found out about when he died.after mrs. davis died the other family tied the whole estate up in court,thats wher it stands now…

tim says:

May 8, 2008, 6:26 am

Been fishing in the creek under the bridge several times recently with my boys. And I used to go there as a teenager… it was pretty scary at night as a teenager, but doesn’t seem to produce the same affect as an adult. Just local lore i guess. It is blocked off now. You can still drive up to it but you have to park your car and walk if you want to be on the bridge. Although I would suggest it… it’s old and if you were to have an accident, there is definately NO ONE around to help.

I have lived in Oxford for over 20 years. I have driven and been on that bridge all hours of the day and night. Nothing ever happens. It is creepy looking, but is very old. You can’t get to it now because of the Oxford Exchange. When they built the new bypass they tore up the roads used to get to it. If you have been on I-20, you have driven past it and didn’t realize it. It is through the woods on your right going to Atlanta from Birmingham.

hey this is Destin i just wanted 2 say that hells gate is the sh** ive been there and the ghost car chased me and some buddies of mine and when we got back in the car our car acted like it wasnt going 2 crank and my other buddy asked why did we smell like fire and we replied the gates were just a little too close… there has been reports of some trying to practice witch craft on the other side of the bridge. there WAS a painted pentagram over there on the road. and if you look closely there is a little girl in the water she wants you to play ball with her.

Okay. I have been to a bridge in Oxford, but I do not know what it is called. The brige was closed and both ends, and in order to get to it the way I was taken, you had to use gravel roads that had been layed out, I’m assuming, for construction workers and such. The bridge was wooden with a metal frame. Once you go past the bridge, there is what seems to be an old barn maybe and a shed, and then a house. I want to know if the bridge I was on is hell’s gate, and if the house is abandoned. If anyone knows these answers, email them to me at and I will tell you what I experienced on the bridge if you would like to know.

sorry, but this is not a truely haunted spot, though it did look pretty creepy when you turned around on the bridge. Heard this story when i was a teenager and tried it, sorry nothing happened the numerous times i was there to do that, it became one of my favorite spots to hang out around when i was partying, there was a really wide spot on the side of the road next to the creek past the bridge. even got arrested there once.

Diamond, Indiana which is North of Brazil, Indiana.
These Directions Are Starting From Brazil, Indiana. It Is Way Worth Your Time If You Are In The Area. I Guess It Only Works For Some, But It Had My Boyfriends Cats Name On The Wall Its Scary Cause His Cats Name Is Cole And Its Not A Common Name Yet It Was The Only One In Sight We Also Got Tapping And It Sounded Like Walking In The Woods. We Got Scared After The Tapping Though Cause My Dad Said KKK Was Known To Go Their So Be Careful If You Do Go. It Apperently Only Works For Some, But Is Guarenteed To Scare You.Also We Turned On The Car Quick And No One Was Around And Theirs No Way They Could Have Ran As Quick As We Got Scared. We Didnt See The Tree But We Did See No Opening to The Tunnel. Honestly It Looked Like A Long Ledge Of Tan Like Stone To Me Like A Castle Wall I Dont No It Sounds Unreal But I Am Sure It Was Real Im A Little Scepticle About Cults But It Couldnt Have Been One That Night. Also I No Tons Of Them But Thats Only The First Tunnel I Am Now Looking For ALl 7 If Anyone Knows Where The Rest Are Let Me Know.Directions To The First Gate Below Scroll Kids Scroll……

Complete Directions:
North on Hwy. 59 out of Brazil, In. Turn West on County Road 1350. Keep going, there will be two or three stop signs, straight ahead until you reach Rock Run Rd. Turn onto it and follow the road and around a turn ahead there is the first of Hell’s Gates.

Matt says:

May 17, 2009, 8:48 pm

I can’t believe I’m reading about, and seeing pictures of, Hell’s Gates on the net after all this time. My friends and I used to ride out there once or twice a weekend in the early and mid 1990’s. We had heard most or all of the stories mentioned above and tried it, i.e. killed the lights and sat there waiting for ghosts, but nothing like that happened… EXCEPT once when we were all sitting there in the middle of the bridge, ignition off, all lights off, on a starless and moonless night and we (at least 3 of us) saw many little lights on, or in, the water. It looked like the water was reflecting rows of straight, parallel stars, but there WERE no stars visible that night and stars wouldn’t show up in parallel rows like that even if ther HAD been any. Plus, the lights weren’t moving at all, as they would have been if they were a reflection in the water. We could think of no explanation for those lights–it was an absolutely pitch-black night. It was cold out so there were no lightning bugs (fireflies). In retrospect, the only possible explanation I can think of under the circumstances is some sort of weird aquatic life–algae, perhaps–that emitted its own light.
I also went out there with a date one night in spring ’93 and was, shall we say, “interrupted” by an Oxford cop who told us the cops had recently found a headless, dead female body in the water next to the bridge and that the person(s) who dumped it had parked exactly where we were parked. I suspect he was just trying to discourage us from being there, but he stated it as fact and it was creepy at the time.
It sucks that you can’t go over the bridge anymore and that those trees are no longer there–those trees that arched over the road were the spookiest and coolest part about that whole area. That reminds me: One other creepy thing happened out there back then–one night me and my buddy were driving along the road leading to the bridge (Boiling Springs Rd, I think) back when the trees were still there and, somewhere before the bridge, we came upon a vehicle parked on the side of the road with the passenger side facing straight toward my car. In the passenger seat was what appeared to be an elderly woman who was sort of slumped forward with her eyes staring hugely and blankly toward us; she didn’t look right–she looked sort of bluish-purplish-white and the look on her face was EXTREMELY creepy, as if she were dead or undead or something. In retrospect, someone was probably just driving their sick elderly relative around and had to pull over for a second–but it didn’t look or feel right at the time and we briefly considered reporting it, because that woman did NOT look OK. But we never heard anything about it in the papers and I eventually forgot about it until just now.

It sucks to think that I’ll never cross that bridge again…

once there was an old couple who lived in an old house. well the old man soon became ill.and the lady wasn’t so well herself so she would hire men to cut her grass in her yard.About two weeks past and the grass cutters knocked on the door after they cut the grass and the old man opened it and said “be quite” because my wife is asleep.So the boys were quite while the man went to get the check. The old woman came down the stair and asked to the young worker,”Who were you speaking with” The young man answered,”your husband” Then the old lady stared at him and said.”My husband died a week ago, you see the dealth certificate is right here on the table!!

Me and a couple of buddies just got back from searching around this area. First we went to the bridge and got out with flashlights and searched around. Nothing. Besides one thing… Probably a fish but there was a splash behind us right by the bridge. As legend has it, a baby was thrown into the river off the bridge a while ago. I have lived in this area for 16 years. I remember when the house and the bridge were still active. As we continued our little adventure, we went to the house beside the bridge. Everytime we passed it (4 times), we saw nothing. But on the fourth time, taking the same route, just a different direction as before… We saw a spot of blood as we were passing the tree in front of the bottom left window. I shouldn’t say blood because I have no idea what it was, but as we passed the tree, all 4 of us saw handprints and a face. If you have seen Cast Away, the face looked like Wilson. Not trying to be funny, but that’s exactly what we saw. Also, as we passed the 3rd time, I myself, was the only one to think to have seen a shadow. As we passed the fourth time (the same time we saw the blood-looking figure), 2 out of my 3 friends saw the same shadow as I saw as we were passing the 3rd time. This just happend so I’m a little freaked. If you have any information about the blood on the window or shadow, please inform. I have done research on Hell’s Gate, but nowhere has information about the house.

Hells gate is not haunted. I have been in the house and on the gate multiple times. It’s a fun place to go to. And I even took a dive and walked through the fields. The creepiest and most interesting part of the plantation is around back. They have three graves that are for german shepards. And they have pix of them on the headstones then when you go farther back there are at least six human graves and one of the graves holds six bodies. A very strange plac indeed. It is over by the oxford exchange. Very simple to get it. I know of the road and everything.

If you need directions, its pretty easy… Take I-20 to exit 188 in Oxford Al. then take Leon Smith Parkway south to Friendship Rd. Turn Left on Friendship Rd. Go to the first Rd. to the left which is Boiling Springs Rd. turn Left and follow it to the one lane bridge. That is Hell’s Gate. That is also the Bridge where the couple lost their lives.

I have been over this bridge many times and that is just a tale. I have done it on a couple occassions. Both times someone trying to scare me. It is just something fun to do. Doesn’t really happen.

Sorry to say Hell’s Gates is no more. The Alabama Dept of Transportation condemned the bridge and tore it down. Shortly after the lady who lived on the plantation passed away, her son… the sole proprieter, has left the property of the plantation. It is rumored that there is a groundskeeper who cares for the house, barn, out buildings, and land.

My friends and I actually went to hell’s gate tonight. It was alright but not as scary as I thought it would be. We’re all teenagers so it was pretty cool to look at but there wasn’t anything special about it. It was only fun and creepy because it was pitch black outside.

this bridge now illegal to get onto so if you do go you have to be careful and watch out for snakes. if you know anything about oxford you should know the historical davis house (recently torched by some moron) you go back around the cut off road. if you don’t know where this is its right across from the oxford exchange. you go on that road around the big curve and its there. we camped out one night after they blocked it and you can hear cring and all. now you can’t pull onto it they have large cement blockers however you can park at the exchange and walk it if your not to scared!!! just be warned its trespassing so if caught you can go to jail or get a ticket. if your really brave strip down and swim theres a several ways to the water. go to the east of the bridge (exchange side) go about 20 feet from the middle of the bridge and stand(or float) in the middle of the water and be still and the water will move like someone is circling you. you can feel it. i know from doing this. word of warning don’t go alone go in a group and be quiet!!

I am part of a paranormal investigation group called RPS Investigators. We have done numerous investigations at hell’s gate and we have found a lot of great evidence of paranormal activity. We have many pictures and EVPs on our website:
If you are interested in doing your own investigation then be careful because there are a lot of animals that are around there. Also, after reading some comments left here I wonder if some of you have ever been there at all. The story of Hell’s Gate is that a coupe and their 6 year old daughter ran off the bridge killing the little girl. In a picture that I personally took on the bridge you can see the little girl standing at the opposite end of the bridge ( this picture will be on the website soon). If you are interested in Hell’s Gate please feel free to visit our site and see for yourself what is there and what you can expect. If you have any questions about it or there is somewhere else that you would like us to investigate then please send an e-mail to our founder and we will do what we can. Also, someone said something about the bridge being on private land, the bridge is public property but the house that was burnt down is private property. You can not get in trouble for being on the bridge.

okay so this story is wrong the old woman did NOT die on this bridge. and she died years after her husband. the cops patrol this place day and night and going down there will get you in trouble.

I just went through boiling springs road last night looking for it…but im assuming because of it being closed off they re-did the road or something. but I’d really like to see the bridge, so if anyone knows how to get to it from the road search Christina Harry on Facebook and let me know.

You can no longer go to the hells gate bridge in oxford because of a publix being built right beside it. Me and my team went tonight and got ran off by a security guard that was watching over the site. He said it was privately owned. But you can see a big plantation house and filed to the right. Wish we could have stayed to investigate.

Lil Nugget says:

Ok to anyone who is still wondering where hells gate is…. I live a couple blocks away, been there for 24 years. The bridge is on the old boiling springs rd, yes the one that is now closed due to the construction of the new bypass (Leon Smith pkwy) and the new construction of public’s. The road behind the public’s construction is actually one side of the old boiling springs road. The other is under the one of the bridges that cross choccolocco creek. I went out there on a four Wheeler a couple weeks ago, the bridge is closed with two concrete pillars on each side, making it impossible to get a vehicle on it. The effect of Hells Gate has not worked since they clear cut the side of the road back in the 90s. Hope this helps…

The Honeysuckles are all over and under that bridge. They taste yummy and smell divine. There is a presence that is wickedly sexy. When we got up and left I couldn’t believe how wet the seat was.We had such a good time.Definitely going down there again. Thunderstruck that truck. Like Adeles song Our Love ain’t WATER under the bridge. We really really enjoyed it. Not at all afraid. Oh, be very quiet and you can hear a lady screaming. Amazing how wet the seat was and we didn’t get in the water. Wow! He’ll gAte went all out. You must visit.

May 8 Angelica Marie Christine Night says:

March 11, 2018, 3:55 am

Yeah I went there too but I wasn’t much fun and I waited for something to happen but nothing did. I got eat up by mosquitoes and some poison ivy got on my butt bc I had to go tinkle. I thought I heard a lady moaning. I got scared and left! The seat never got wet. I oozed poison oak for weeks. Red whelp and blistered. Gah, I’m never going back there again. Well,I’m going to bed now. Hope this medicine works. I had to take a cold shower because of that stupid journey! I hope this medication works. ‘good luck to you all and me come Monday lol I should have talked to D’NIECE!
