Texas has such a rich history, it’s no surprise that we have an abundance of supposedly haunted places. Some are somber, some are downright terrifying…and then there’s Bragg Road, which is a category all its own. Nobody can be certain if the legend behind it is fact or fiction, but one thing’s for sure – the eerie “Bragg Light” is 100% real.
