About This Activity

Come run with us and see if you can see the historical Ghost Light in Screven!! Screven Ghost Light, a bouncing orb of light seen for over a century at the railroad crossing on Bennett Road. Those who have seen the light say it moves back and forth and glows bright and then dim. It reportedly is seen after rain and after a train has gone by.

Proceeds are to benefit the 4th of July Fireworks in Screven, GA!
