Summerville - Summerville light - The Story goes that a woman had a husband
that was a conductor for a railroad company in
Summerville...and he worked nights. At midnight every night, people could
always see her there, waiting by the tracks with his lunch and a
lantern...waiting for him to stOp to eat. One night, he never showed. She was
told that the train had derailed or crashed, and he was beheaded and, of
course, killed. Although they buried his remains, she would never accept the
fact that he was gone, and so, she went to the tracks at midnight with her
lantern and walked up and down, waiting for him. People of course began to
think she was crazy, but she continued this nightly ritual until her own death.
Mysteriously, the light never stApped coming. This is what my mother told me
happens at her visit to THE SUMMERVILLE LIGHT: When you go to the tracks, just
before midnight, you can hear all the sounds that are usually heard at night,
crickets chirping, frogs croaking...the breeze blowing.... but for some odd
reason, and this has been the case for every person who has seen THE LIGHT...at
midnight, the sounds suddenly just cease. As if a presence has quieted them
momentarily. Then you can see it, usually its far off, a light and nothing
else...coming your way. If you stick around, THE LIGHT will chase you. Scared
visitors tried to jump in their car and leave and the light came upon them
swiftly, and they heard a BUMP on their car, as they sped away. When at a safe
distance from the sighting, they got out and looked, and there was a dent on
the car, where the lantern hit it. Otheres have had their car stalleda and even
a report of havinga strange burn mark on their hood.
