Houston, TX – Ghosts at Langham Creek Bridge (update)

Langham Creek Bridge is far more haunted than we’d guessed during our May 2005 investigation.

During our previous investigation, we’d noted anomalous compass swings (indicating elevated EMF) on the south side of the bridge.

We’d also taken an odd photo during the afternoon.

In May 2006, we visited Langham Creek Bridge with the Texas Paranormal group, organized by Elmo Johnson.

When we arrived, Elmo and Jill (another Texas Paranormal investigator) had already noted EMF surges in the field on the north side of Langham Creek Bridge.

In the photo above, the tiny white spot is an insect; it looks nothing like an orb. The others are ‘ghost orbs’ that show up in some photos, but not in others.

(In settings with flying insects and near water, it’s vital to take two photos in a row, as close together as possible. Insects, moisture, and anything else creating false orbs will usually show up in both photos. Also, orbs reflected from insects are usually oval or not-quite circular.)

All of the pictures in this article — and others about Patterson Road sites — have been authenticated against other photos.

At right, another photo shows a crisp orb as well as another insect.

However, what really interests me are the more subtle orbs at the lower left side of the tree, and about halfway up, on the right side. To me, they seem to have more substance than typical orbs.

There’s clearly far more to investigate at Langham Creek Bridge. It’s a difficult spot to stop at, with minimal parking nearby.

However, especially in light of our earlier investigations at Patterson Road, it’s clear that Langham Creek is an active haunting.

That is, it’s not residual energy on a repeating loop. Instead, it can seem very haunted some days, and not very haunted on others.

  1. I’m a mother of three and I’ve always loved ghost stories and haunted homes or places. I want to plan a ghost trip with my family here in Houston, Tx. I would like to get some info to scare and inform the kids, but first of all do you recommend any places? Our children are 18,17,13 years of age and I have 2 of them that like the thought of seeing or even coming near a ghost. Please send some recommendations.

    1. Maria,

      Thanks for asking! Search at this website, HollowHill.com, using “Houston” in the search form. You’ll find several locations.

      With children and young adults, I like to visit sites that have strong historical connections. That will make their school studies more interesting, too.

      Houston’s Bear Creek Park is great because it has ghosts and some tremendous history regarding early immigrants, the 1900 Galveston Flood, and the Civil War.

      A trip to Old Town Spring is also worthwhile, not just for the ghosts (and great food at several good, family eateries, including the haunted Wunsche Bros. Cafe) but also the history linked to Bonnie & Clyde, the Civil War, etc.

  2. Have you heard about or have you done any investigations in the Willis, Texas area? There was a home east of town that was reported to be quite active. It was written up in the Houston Chronicle sometime in the 1960’s or 1970’s. This home was built before or during the Civil War. Supposedly several Union soldiers attacked the family who lived there at the time but the family managed to kill them and bury them under the house. I went to school with two boys whose family owned the home and lived there in the 1960’s. They had many stories to tell about hearing sounds, seeing apparitions, and experiencing lots of paranormal activity. I don’t know if the family still owns the property but it might be worth looking into. Also the town of Montgomery has many paranormal happenings also. I just thought you might be interested.
