Cogdell Light

Return to Lights

It was visible on a dead end road that paralleled the old train track. As the legend goes, the conductor was killed in a train accident and was decapitated. The light was supposedly from his lantern as he searched for his head. Most of the reports were that the light would follow the vehicle for miles, then disappear abruptly. It has been explained as swamp gas or hunters with flashlight helmets.
