I find it peculiar that not only is the figure blurry, but also all four corners of the photo. Also wonder if the person taking the photo saw the "ghost" and tried to capture the image, or if it only showed up after developing (If it was developed)

Well I think it is edited/Photoshopped. But maybe this Caspar, the person who uploaded the photo, could tell everyone a really neat ghost story? Did Caspar take the photo? Was Caspar actually brave enough to go into Warfork? Is that ghost in the photo a boy wearing a white mini-skirt? What happened after Caspar took the photo? Inquiring minds want to know!
well let me know

You probably don't need to be any more brave to go into War Fork than any other area of the Danial Boone Forest. Of course, there was one pretty wild story on here a couple months back about events that happened in War Fork years ago. Now we have this ghost photo to add to the mystery. Actually, the last time I was in War Fork during a week day I didn't feel too comfortable at all. I guess it just depends on what is going on at the time though.
Oooooo wow

My parents lived up in that hollow years ago when the coal mines were working. I can sure tell some scary stories about that place. My aunt and uncle ran a company store there, but it set out by the main road. Believe me there was a lot of strange things happened there. My parents told of seeing a ghost there years ago when I was just a child. Once they told of stopping to pick a woman up, wearing a white dress, and when they stopped and looked back she was gone.It might be the same one that is in the picture. No kidding

Does anyone know/remember anything about a house burning down in that area? Possibly there were people that died in the fire. It has been years since someone was telling me the story about this and I can't really remember any details. I'm thinking maybe the house was located somewhere near the bridge where you turn to go toward the campground on the road between Macedonia and New Zion.

It was an old two story farm house. One of the people who burned up was Ott Sparks and I'm not sure about the other one, but I think it was the old woman who lived there. It was Ott's wife that the Lynch boy married, but they didn't live there. It was just a hangout to party. Going to Turkey Foot from the Mckee side, go past the park entrance, through the bridge, and it set about another two or thee hundred feet on the left. I took my metal detecter down there once and found hundreds of railroad spikes, and that's about it.
keep this coming

I love to read about stuff like this too. I wish "Oooooo wow" would tell some of those stories about the area.

Thanks "Goodwater", I think I know exactly where the house that burnt was located now. Does anyone know anything about that small rock cellar-like thing that is located in the Turkey Foot campground? It's out at the end, near that sharp curve before you go down the hill. I've always wondered if that was a cellar remaining from an old homesite, or if it was just something they used to keep explosives in for the mines or something.

I wish there was a book about the history of the War Fork/Turkey Foot area. Like where the old homes were located in the area and what it was like there in the past. Information about the railroad, lumber company, mines, and the people who lived and worked in the area would be interesting. Of course, ghost stories are always interesting too. I've heard people tell stories about their parents and grandparents that logged, mined, and lived in the area and they are always interesting. I think maybe the CCC did some of the bridge pillars with the hewn rocks taken from the area? Also, that trail from the park entrance to the top of the ridge, it is known as Lime Kiln Road. Why is it called Lime Kiln Road?

Information about Wind Cave and the Lakes Creek/Wind Cave area would be very interesting. Didn't people go to Wind Cave a lot in the 50s or 60s? I've heard there was a large "room" inside the cave where people went to dance? Stories about S-Tree when the fire tower was there and when a lot of people lived at Horse Lick would be interesting too.
tell me more
