This particular road is in Huntsville Texas. Ok, so it doesn’t appear to be extraordinary right?! But, at the end of Bowden road, also known as Demon’s road by the locals, is Martha’s Chapel Cemetery. From what I have read, it’s not just the cemetery where you could encounter a ghost. Thrill-seekers claim that it’s one hell of a ride just getting there. Let me tell you what I’ve found.
For decades and even still today, there is a steady stream of haunting experiences that folks have had while traveling down this road. Not just eerie feelings and hair standing on end here folks, there’s some crazy shit happening on this little country road. But, of course, the best of it all occurs in the cemetery. One of the eeriest statements I read was by a woman made in 2010.
Ok, so this chick her husband and some of their friends go to visit the cemetery. While there they all saw a man wandering aimlessly through the headstones. None of them paid him much attention.
A few days later, while home alone, this chick goes to get into the shower. When she turns to close the curtain, the same creepy assed dude is standing there in her bedroom, staring straight at her. After he, or it, succeeds in scaring the hell out of her, it disappears into thin air and never returns. From what I hear, she got off easy. Locals warn folks when they head down that road that it’s not unusual for something to come back with you.
Then there’s this one guy and his story. Wait til you hear this madness! Ok, so the guy and his friend go to the cemetery one afternoon. As they’re walking around, the one guy sees a hand protruding from a grave. Eager to check it out, he drags his reluctant friend over to the grave with him. By the time they’re close enough, an entire arm has dug it’s way from the dirt. So what does the one guy do? Get this, despite his friend begging him to back away, the one guy kneels down and goes to touch the hand. What a idiot! I mean really! I might would have handed the hand a beer or something but I for damned sure am not touching it! What the hell was he thinking, right?!
So anyway, the hand grabs the one guy tight and starts pulling at him, trying to drag him into the grave. So his terrified friend grabs onto him and starts pulling his friend backwards. Eventually the idiot is freed. So he stands up to ask his freaked out friend if he’s ok and as he does, he sees a man standing directly behind his friend. So he lunged forward to protect his friend just as the other man lifts his head. The other dude looked exactly like his friend who had been begging his dumb ass to leave the whole time. So when he turns away from this other dude his friend is gone, he’s like nowhere.
So the idiot starts running and when he gets to the car he notices huge hand prints in the dust on the car. So now he’s all freaked out but he heads to the safety of the car anyway. He jumps in and locks the doors. While he’s sitting there trying to make sense of what had just happened, he feels drawn to look in the backseat, guess what he sees!? It’s his friend, crumpled up in the back seat, deader than hell!
So back to those huge hand prints. It seems that is a typical occurrence. There are hundreds of reports where vehicle owners have stated that there were hand prints all over their cars, and those were just the ones that drove down the road without stopping at the cemetery.
But hand prints aren’t the only things that occur on the roadway. There are tons of reports of folks having seen inexplicable red lights. The number of lights seen always coincides with the number of people in the vehicle. There is one report made by four individuals that took a ride down Demon road one evening. So they’re riding along and all of the sudden four red lights appear from out of nowhere. Mesmerized by the floating anomalies, the driver takes his foot off of the gas and slows down. Moments later it sounded like something hit the back of the car. The passengers in the back seat turn around and immediately see four huge hand prints appear on the surface of the trunk. I’m betting at that point the driver floored it and got the hell out of there!
Besides these mystery lights and massive hand prints, plenty of other ghostly apparitions are seen on the road way to Martha’s Chapel Cemetery. Two of the most commonly seen are a young child with glowing eyes that’s riding a tricycle along the road way and a second faceless figure that brings with it an overwhelming sensation of threat to those that see it. These spirits chose to reveal themselves in many different forms but regardless to how they are witnessed they are never reported as anything less than terrifying and violent.
