LEIGHTON-Haunted Hayride returns to LaGrange Mountain every Friday and Saturday night in October 2020 from 7 Pm Until…..

Haunted hayrides, to hear stories about the ghosts that are rumored to haunt LaGrange Mountain, are returning to LaGrange College Site Park in Colbert County. The rides drew huge crowds and rave reviews during their opening season in 2018.

“Paranormal investigators from all over the country who have visited the Old LaGrange College Site and cemetery have told us they found more paranormal activity here than any other place,” said Louise Lenz, an organizer of the hayrides.

LaGrange College was the first chartered college in Alabama. It opened 1830 and was relocated to Florence in 1854. It later became the University of North Alabama. After the college was moved, a military academy was established in LaGrange. The military academy, along with most of the community, was burned by the Union Army in 1863.

Many visitors to LaGrange College Site Park, and the old LaGrange Cemetery, have reported ghostly encounters.

“Nobody really knows how many ghosts are supposed to walk this mountain,” Lenz said. “Come see how haunted this mountain is. If you dare.”

Admission is $5 for adults and 6 and under free.  LaGrange College is located at 1491 LaGrange College Road in Leighton.
