St. Andrew’s Church Road Bridge, Hollywood, MD

By , July 25, 2015 11:26 pm

This bridge is said to be haunted by two women. One of the women is thought to be a young girl who was killed by a car that came speeding around the curve entering the bridge. The driver of the car was her husband, who had just returned from fighting in World War II. He was rushing home, anxious to see his young wife and child. Another sad fact to this story is that the young woman was holding her infant son in her arms when she was hit. The impact caused the baby to be tossed over the bridge and into the ice cold water below. The baby was never found, but cries can still be heard from the stream which is now called Cry Baby Creek.

The second ghost seen at this bridge is a young slave girl whose quarters once stood near the bridge. This ghost is known to jump out at cars and cause accidents. She had a troubled life; sexually abused by her master, she murdered him and then was located by a posse and killed in a nearby swamp.

Elmore Bridge – Elmore, OH

This bridge was built in the early 1900’s and is located in this city of Elmore, Ohio. The bridge runs on Toledo street or Ohio 51 over the Portage River. The haunting is said to be attributed to a motorcyclist who was involved in an accident on this bridge on March 21, possibly in 1918–the exact year is unknown.

The legend says that the man returned from war only to discover that his girlfriend had married another man. Heartbroken, he took off on his motorcycle and lost control on a sharp curve near the bridge. He is said to have plummeted down into a ravine, causing both the headlight of his motorcycle and his own head to be severed.

The story goes that in order to summon this ghost you have to go to the bridge on March 21, flash your headlights three times and this is supposed to “summon” the ghost to appear. Witnesses say once the ghost is summoned, a ghostly white headlight will appear and move towards your car until just before it reaches the bridge, at which point it disappears. To this day no one has really been able to identify the driver or to say whether or not the story is true but if you’re brave enough to give it a shot, head on out there on March 21 and see what happens.

old_birdsboro_bridgeThis bridge near Baumstown, PA has been haunted for more than a century.  Eyewitness say the ghost of a woman wearing a veil has appeared to drivers as they approach the bridge.  Buggy riders would see her encouraging them to cross the bridge.  Several witnesses reported she spoke to them about the reality of life after death. 

 

The bridge has now been torn down, but people say she is still there, enticing people to join her on the other side of the nonexistent bridge…

This area is on South Baumstown Road at the sharp turn leading to Highway 82 in Berks County.

Mill Creek Bridge – Smithfield, NC

Dancing lights have been seen on this bridge, mostly in the 1950’s.  Stories say the lights are that of the ghost of an old black man know as “Old Squire” who was being beaten by his cruel master.  Apparently the master went too far with his lashings one day and the slave fought back, killing his master.  He buried the body under the bridge and shortly thereafter strange things began happening there.  As people walked over the bridge, their lanterns would go out and strange sounds came from under the bridge.  This bridge is located outside Smithfield in Johnson County.

Choctawhatchee River Bridge – Newton, AL

A shallow hole near the bank of this bridge is said to be haunted.  For decades, whenever someone fills the hole in, it will be empty again within a day.  Even highway workers have attempted to fill the hole, but to no avail. 

The haunting is said to be caused by the spirit of Bill Sketoe, a former pastor of the local methodist church.  Although he was innocent, he was accused of being a traitor to the confederacy. He was hung by a group of vigilantes from a tree that that stood where the hole now is.  As he was being hung, the branch he was hung from bent enough that he could touch his toes to the ground. The vigilantes quickly dug a hole under his feet as the rope strangled him to death

Legend says that each of the six vigilantes reported meeting the innocent pastor’s ghost and eventually they all died violent deaths.  Locals have also reported seeing Bill Sketoe’s ghost. 

 The hole remains in tact, right next to the new concrete bridge.
