The scene is picturesque underneath an old but very active railroad trestle in the Fisherville area of Louisville, Kentucky.
"This is the old trestle for the Northern Suffolk Railway," explained author and historian David Domine.
Legends of the paranormal have turned this site into the center of fear and the home of a renowned creature.
Domine said, "The goat man of Pope Lick as he's known. They say he's part man, part goat maybe even part sheep."
Numerous urban legends exist about the creature's origins.
One tale Domine explained said, "The goat man arose as a tale of a local farmer back in the day. Tortured a herd of goats for Satan and signed a contract with him and forfeited his soul. In the process he was converted into this terrible creature that was sent to live under the trestle seeking revenge on people!"
Another popular legend Domine shared claims, "A circus train was crossing the trestle one day and it derailed and in one of the cars there was a kind of circus freak."
The legends don't just stop at his gruesome features but also focus on the methods he employs to claim his victims. Narratives claim he also has powers to draw you to your death by either hypnosis or voice mimicry.
