Located near the intersection of Kali Oka Road and Oak Grove Road, and named for both, two former residents seem to still be lingering at this plantation home. Visitors have reported seeing the apparition of a white woman lighting candles in the windows, as well as of a seven-foot tall black man walking about the grounds or even on Kali Oka Road. The woman is believed to have been the wife of the plantation's master, and the man is a slave rumored by conflicting accounts to have been the lover of either the woman or her husband. In either event, the man was brutally murdered by the jealous spouse, whichever one it may have been, and has been haunting the area ever since.

A third version of the story alleges that the man was actually kept as the woman's bodyguard and still remains behind to protect her. There are also some tellings of the story in which the woman gave birth to a child who was quickly drowned in the river. According to these stories the bridge on Kali Oka Road is still haunted by the child, and its screams and cries can be heard to this day, making it one of several supposed "Cry Baby Bridges" in Alabama.

  • Davis mansions and sawmill, not plantation.

    Many assume that this is the Kalioka or Oak Grove plantation. It is actually the Davis brothers two mansions for the nearby sawmill that was in operation till the 1930s. Once owned by Springhill College (Mobile), there were used as retreats. They are now in private hands. Drive by and enjoy from the road. Watch out for bear and dear (and the occasional UFO). The nearby haunted place is Cry Baby Bridge (originally over Maggie Creek, closer to HWY 45), the current Cry Baby is the Chickasaw Creek bridge (just past Oak Grove Road). The unofficial swimming area there is Bear Butt Beach or Buzzard’s Roost). I grew up in the area :)

  • Grew up in Saraland

    I grew up down the road from the Old Kali Oka plantation. As kids we would go explore and test our mettle on these sights. This place is for real and still scares me today some 30 years later!!!

  • Handprints

    So me and some in laws at the time went and investigated cry baby bridge 3 years ago. We heard that if you put baby powder on your hood and walk away, a handprint and a babys hand print appears. We were skeptical but gave it a go. We stopped on the bridge, put the baby powder on the hood and walked away. This car had just been washed and detailed so no prints were on it btw. We took pics of the creek under it, and walked along side of the bridge and all of a sudden heard a scream and what sounded like a baby cry. Middle of the summer and ice cold chills went straight thru us. We stopped and ran back to the car. I started snapping pics before anyone got close to it and there were TWO handprints. Both baby size and what looked to be a bigger print where someone or something tried to grab the hood but their hand slid sideways. We immediately left. Got back home and i started looking at pics. Sure enough when i took that last pic of the car there was a figure standing right beside it. It scared us all

  • Prepare to leave!

    Thanksgiving night 2019, My boyfriend and I decided to explore the bridge after reading the story. He was using an emf meter (which was giving of very high readings) and I was using a streaming spirit box and recorder. I have used the device in the past with no conclusive results so imagine my surprise when I got immediate responses to several questions/comments. I remarked about the sadness of the tragic story and heard "it was violent", very clearly. A few minutes later I said something about passing along the tale and was told, "I'm used to it". Walking along the bridge I got a few more unintelligible messages. I stopped the recording to regroup and take a few pics but began recording again within a few minutes. Upon asking if there were anymore messages to be shared, I was told "prepare to leave", which we promptly did! I kept the device recording while we put on our helmets (we were on a motorcycle)and continued to record for a few more minutes. When I reviewed the entire session I heard "I died", "not worthy", "bye" and "died out". This was a very active, but short investigation!

  • Several experiences ...

    As a teenager this was always my favorite place to take "out of towners" and non belivers,lol. On one such trip, I drive just beyond Cry Baby bridge and stop my car. Upon exiting , only the sound of crickets ....then silence. Wales of a baby began and grew louder.....needless to say,we loaded the car in record time.

  • I lived about 10 minutes away....

    I've been to this house. When it was vacant and abandoned. I did not see anything but yes I felt things, like ice cold air all around my body in the heat of summer. You can literally feel the energy in the land itself. Strange noises within the house as well. There was also a low budget film shot there not long after this called "Dead Birds". The actors said they heard footsteps following them in the evening. They refused to stay on set longer than they had to because of the paranormal activity.
