I grew up in Griffin and remember many stories about the trestle. I heard that area is residential now but 40 years ago it was a dead end dirt road and it was as dark as a cave at night. Rumor was that a train derailed there (don't know when) and if you walked on the tracks late at night you could hear the train whistle and see a glowing lantern coming down the tracks.
Another story was that if you shut off your car and turned off the lights your car wouldn't start back for a few minutes. I went there with a friend one night and we were too chicken to go on the tracks but the car thing did happen to us.
He had a brand new car and it literally would not start for about ten minutes.|

In August 2010 I was doing a project for the Stephen King website that led to me a local old abandoned funeral home. It was on Meriwether Street. Upon arriving near sunset, the skies darkened, and the wind began to blow so hard it was howling, literally. Hundreds of bats began swarming all around. It was like an outdoor poltergeist! We captured just 30 seconds of that on footage before we left, but I will post a link to it here, and also a couple of stills from the footage, because a light was on in one of the windows. We didn't see it at the time, but later on the footage and also the figure of a woman at the window looking out. Here's the link to the footage http://s882. Photobucket. Com/user/ Sightingsx/media/sk113. Mp4. Html?sort=3&o=41
After this happened, I became more inclined to do the project as you can imagine and began researching the house. Prior to being a funeral home it had also been an old Civil War Hospital and browsing through some old real estate photos of the house I found online. (It had been for sale for many years. No one would buy it!) I saw what appeared to be an apparition of not one, but two side by side, on the downstairs floor. I will post those photos as well, original and with harsh light to define. Interestingly the one figure appeared to be wearing old Civil War era nurse uniform.

Comment by Former Griffinite: Many years ago I lived in Griffin on Poplar St which is parallel to Meriwether St and the house we lived in was almost directly in line with the old Haisten Funeral Home. Even when it was an operating business the building was extremely creepy and scary even in the daylight.
It would not surprise me that it houses many spirits.
