Hey, everyone. It’s been a while since I did a Mystery Monday post. This topic has been on my mind for a while, so here goes.
Bragg Road, the sight of the Saratoga Light (Creative Commons Photo)
The Big Thicket is a heavily forested area of Southeast Texas. It’s a high biodiverse area with at least eight ecosystems, over 160 species of trees and shrubs, 800 herbs and vines, 340 types of grasses, and a large diversity of animals.
Some of the earliest known permanent settlers were the Alabama-Coushatta Tribe in the 1780s, although nomadic Native Americans hunted there prior to that time.
Like many places, the Big Thicket has its share of legends. The most famous I know of is The Saratoga Light.
Sometimes referred to as the Big Thicket Light, this ghostly phenomenon periodically appears at night along a stretch of dirt road in Hardin County.
