Location: Screven, GA

Nestled between the small town of Jesup, and the even smaller town of Screven, is a long, curvy dirt road, GA 38, better known to locals as Bennett Road. The reason that this dirt road is significant to others is the fact that if you follow it deep into the woods, you will eventually arrive at Milligan's Crossing. A quaint little railroad crossing with no lights or crossing arms. This stretch of track is part of the old Seaboard Coast Line. The impressive characteristic of this small crossing in the middle of the woods is the fact that for over a century, it has been haunted by none other that what the locals in this area call the "Spook Light".

There are many stories that accompany the light's existence, but the most popular is the one told of a flagman who was hit and decapitated by an oncoming train as he was walking along the tracks with his lantern. He is said to walk the tracks to this day, swinging his lantern from side to side, in search of his lost head. Although this is just a theory, there has never been a scientific explanation for this eerie light, which predates the Civil War. It is usually seen near, or after midnight, coming from the direction of Jesup, sometimes after a rainstorm. It appears as a big bright ball of light that hovers just over the tracks and floats from side to side getting brighter then dim then bright again, and sometimes disappearing and reappearing again.
