The Partyers

Locals often report hearing the sounds of a party during the early evening near Reynold’s Creek Hollow, which was once a popular spot for Waco’s early social elites to live and socialize until the construction of the new Lake Waco in 1965. At that time, the Army Corps of Engineers required many of these prized homes to be either moved or demolished and their lots flooded. According to legend, some nights you can still hear the high-profile parties under way. If you pursue the source of the festivities, you will be left with only the croaking of summer bullfrogs or the rustling of trees.


The legends and folktales in Cotton Bales, Goatmen & Witches: Legends from the Heart of Texas, compiled by Bradley T. Turner and accompanied by photographs from Mark Burdine, bring to life the whispered stories and forgotten secrets that illuminate the darkest recesses of the Texas psyche from the distant past to the present day.
