According to legend, Bingham's light is the flickering lantern of the man who was killed by a train. It is believed the man was trapped on the tracks and desperately flashed his light in order to attract the attention of oncoming trains. His light can still be seen glowing in the darkness.

  • Its legit

    Having gone here multiple times with the family we have seen lights that move back and forth but not where the map says it's at. If you come down the first road that the old church is on you will come to a field at the end and make a right at the dead end road and go down a short while till you see the gas lines on the left hand side and you see a clearing between the trees on each side, if you look at the trees directly beside the gas pipes you will see the light going back and forth but I will advise you dont curse or be rude because many have bad experiences when doing that. But I can honestly say it will give you the chill bumps and it's truly one of the few places I believe to be haunted.

  • A Local's Experience

    Personally, having resided in Latta a majority of my life, obviously I've heard the folk lore surrounding the Bingham Light. As legend goes a man was trapped on the train tracks, used his lantern to warn the oncoming train of his misfortune, but was nonetheless decapitated by the train. Having visited the dirt road where the train tracks were previously laid but have since been uprooted, I have seen a faint light on multiple occasions. I have heard experiences of the light chasing people away, but I've had nothing but benign experiences. If you're seeking a relatively safe hunt to visit, this is the one for you.
