History

Darlington Woods was a popular hunting spot for residents of the town of Darlington. Deer, pheasant, quail, rabbit, etc. are all plentiful in the area. The Darlington Covered Bridge resides on the southern edge of the wood and was built in 1868.

During the depression, many hobos who rode the Pennsylvania Rail Road-Vandalia line, which passed through Darlington, would build camps in the wood. Several of these people were ill or drunkards. Many of them died in the woods. To this day, it is believed that Darlington Woods is inhabited by spirits and ghosts. Paranormal activity is regularly reported in this area.
