Binghams light
Blenheim, Sc 29516

County: Marlboro
WebSite: None

   
Description:
It is said back in the early 1800's a man's two children became missing in a snow storm. The man went in search of his children and never returned and neither did his children. It is said if you drive into the woods by a dirt road you will see his lantern glowing in the distance. It is also said if you scream to the light that you have his children the light will turn red. There are no reports of anyone getting close to the light but if you wait long enough maybe the light will come to you. December Update: Bingham's lights appear close to the old cemetery, which is actually split into two sections, one on each of two hilltops. If you drive down the road between the graveyards towards the woods you will see the lights. It works best if you get out and walk in that direction.

I was there Saturday night, 02/27/2010 I've always heard the story and never believed it, now I do , it was unbelievable. It was white the first time and a few minutes later it was blue.It was unreal , but very true.

Ive been here as well. The story I have hears is different than the one posted about the snow storm, but the results are the same.
My group of 4 did not get the light to change to red, but we did see the white light and it approached us, but never got really close before going away. I have heard of similar experiences to the comment from 9-12-06 though. It is a popular spot to go get freaked out

yes it is real!! i went there when i was a teenager (16 years ago)! some say it is swamp gas but i really dont know ! I do know however that it does come toward you and it does change color !! This is a really neat place to go to if you are into ghost hunting! I think the owner of the land closed the entrance to the place though, but you could probably still walk there !

My roomates & I are going tonight. It will probaly scare me to death as I am the chicken of us 3. We went about 2 weeks ago & sat in the car on the smallest dirt road. There was an old farm house there & its pretty creepy itself. We saw a faint light in the pine trees ahead of us. It came & went 2 or 3 times. There was a red light in the woods & as we got closer we saw it was a transformer. Had me going for a minute! Will tell our adventure in the future. Montrose cemetary is going to be our first stop tonight. Now folks, let me tell you that is one freaky place. Been there 3 times & every time has been scary as heck. Once we saw a huge black shadow behind the car, next time a strange light that flew from a tree went across the graves, back into a tree, danced on a grave & flew away. Poof- gone. It was storming to boot. I just starting ghost hunting about 3 months ago & I really like it. Thanks for reading my comment.

We asked some locals about it & they told us to go over a yellow gate near googles point of origan,we were told that it was ok to do so like hundreds of others have done. I have been a lot & i have not see anything. There are 3 or 4 towers in the area that can fool you. Im going back. Never saw anyone out there but the cops are the ones that told us on 1 occasion where to go & he did not try to arrest me, got the right cop I guess. There a house near it called centerville house & we snuck back there. its creepy.Watch out for the cows, as i think i saw a bull, dont go down there cause we almost got caught.

went this past weekend. And we took a digital camera. Did see the light, but did not get a picture of it. We kept calling for it, and then all of a sudden it was there like the flip of a switch. Saw it get with in 30 yards of us. Then it just vanished...only just to be behind us. But as we were walking back to our vehicles. I took a lot of pictures. Did have quite a bit of those "spiritual orbs" but I think it was just reflection from the dust. But what I did capture on camera were several photos of what looked like fog. In actuality it was spirits, and you could see what looked like images of faces. That were screaming. It freaked us out cause that did not show on the camera...but I was not looking at the shots afterwards either. Plus what was also disturbing was that we could hear what sounded like screams of people in pain. If you go....take a camera and see how they turn out. There is one photo shot of what looks like a woman. We call her Lady J. She had what looked like the letter "J" on what would be her torso. Her face was very dramatically intense to say the least.

i went there one time with my step dad. we had to walk for an hour or so but we noticed that where the field where the light should appear had grown up but someone had marked the trees with reflectors. we got not far before we turned around but i swear we saw the shadow of that light.

Ive been to the light several times in the early 90's after graduating from high school in hartsville.The light is VERY real,all the times we went were in large groups and the light was seen everytime.The ominous glowing of red and the fast traveling pace of the light lets you know its time to leave.Its scary

I have been to the light several times and it is real.I have had the light to come down the rail road bed and get right over our heads and i have had it to follow us out to the intersection of the dirt roads.It has changed red on us several times.The best time is when we went and just turned out all our lights set down and stayed very quiet and it came right up to us.I want to take my girlfriend down because she has never seen it and it has been alomst 15 years since i have been can you still get to it or is it off limits now.

my dad has been there many times back in high school and college. He went 7 times and seen it 5. He plans on taking me there soon and I know where to go cause I go through bingham to go to darlington. I stay in N.C which is only 30 mins from bingham. My dad said this light is real and scary but fun in the whole experince. I had friends to go see it from dillion, they said a gate was up and they rode fourwheelers to the spot. They did see the light which was about 6 months ago. If you need direction just email me at braceyl8508@robeson.k12.nc.us the names jake

take hwy 34 from dillon straight all the way to bingham and then turn left on south butler road.  take that road all the way to the end and stop, turn off your lights and wait.  you will be sitting right in the path the train took.  i know this is all true and accurate............i used to live there.

Sorry but that story in the initial description is wrong. Additionally, the directions are wrong too. The light is seen down S. Butler rd and/or Reedy Springs ct. The light haunts that whole general area, which is connected. There are no graveyards down those roads.
