Cry Baby Hollow – Alabama

There’s an area in Hartselle, Alabama that’s a tiny one lane bridge locals call Cry Baby Hollow. At first glance the bridge really isn’t anything much to look at, it’s 12 feet across and looks like your average small creek side bridge.

It’s one of those places you would probably cross over and wouldn’t really pay much attention to. However, there are many stories as to WHY the area is so haunted. One of those stories goes back to the 1800’s where a wagon   overturned ejecting a baby into the creek.

They say that if you go at night to the creek that you can hear crying coming from the river. Others say that if you leave a candy bar on the bridge and leave and come back, a small bite will be taken out of it. 

Places like these that have stories that stretch back a very long time usually tend to pick up new ones along the way. Most of the time the stories aren’t real but rather filler stories to make the area a little bit more enticing to would be explorers, do you think that’s the case here?

    I am primarily an empath. I also possess claircognizant, clairaudient, and clairvoyant abilities. My husband and I went down this road and over the bridge one night a few weeks ago. Without me knowing, my husband had a digital recorded and a P-SB7 spirit box turned on while going down the hill to this bridge. After we crossed the bridge, I immediately became overwhelmed by emotions. I started crying and I kept repeating “it was a little boy, it was a little boy”. I also immediately felt a woman’s presence. It felt like a very motherly energy. I know the overwhelming emotions I was experiencing were not my own. They were her’s. I could feel her desperation. She was searching for her child. I also felt she was trapped in this location by a very negative male energy. I told my husband that I was getting the years between 1940-1960. Then as we continued down the road, out of nowhere I pointed to the right side of the woods and said there was a cabin in those woods and it holds nothing but evil. Keep in mind that at the time we went down this road neither of us knew anything about that location and it’s history. Then we arrived at a curve that went to the left and up at the top were rail road tracks. I stopped dead in the road and said that I could not go any further and that I felt I needed to turn around and go home. The eerie part was once we got back out to the main road we heard a train horn in the distance. I, without a doubt, know that this poor lost mother’s soul watched over me that night. I felt her presence all the way home. After I got home I kept feeling the overwhelming need to try to see if she would communicate with me audibly through the spirit box. As soon as I turned it on I heard a female voice say “hi!”. It was crystal clear. It sounded as if she was happy that someone could finally hear her. My husband in the meantime was reviewing the audio on the digital recorder from earlier and he heard the word “Jesus” several times. I did all I knew to do to try and help her lost soul find peace. I let her know that she was safe and that she did not have to be trapped in those woods any longer. I told her if she sees a white light to go to it. I then heard a woman’s voice say “heaven” and I never got anymore responses from her after that. It was an insane experience and I definitely do not recommend just anyone going to this location because there is evil energy there as well. I feel that most people go to this place just for a good “spook” and are disrespectful of the location as well as the energies that are there. I can say without a doubt that this place is full of intense residual energy and IS NOT for the faint of heart. If you do decide to check this place out then please be respectful. Do not leave trash lying around. I can tell you that leaving candy bars is just a waste. I didn’t feel any “trapped” young energy there. Just primarily the distraught and desperate mother energy. Still to this day I think about her at least once a day and I pray that by me interacting and talking to her was enough to help her find peace and finally cross over to be with her family.

      I personally grew up within 3 miles from this bridge and hunted the woods all around and in the area. I’m 48 years old and as a teenager, my friends and I went to the area at night hundreds of times, with candy bars, and never, ever, seen, heard, or felt ANYTHING but night air! This story is just for fun and nothing more. Please don’t waste your time with this story. It is a beautiful place and is quite spooky at night, nothing more.

    Just want you to know that the KKK used to meet in those woods, and that may be the evil lurking you feel.

    You should definitely go to Henry Hill in Lawrence County Alabama.

    Cry baby hollow is nothing compared to Dead Children’s playground in Huntsville, AL.
