Eunice Williams Covered Bridge - Pumping Station Bridge

You are here Home  > Bridges >  Eunice Williams Covered Bridge - Pumping Station Bridge

The Eunice Williams, or Green River Pumping Station, Covered Bridge is said to be haunted by Eunice Williams, the reverend’s wife who lived nearby in the 1600s. It happened when French soldiers and Indians raided the area and hacked Eunice to death just hours after she had given birth. The story is told on a nearby plaque set in a stone. The bridge is now closed to vehicular traffic, but when it was open to cars, locals said those who stopped inside, shut off their lights and beeped the horn once would see her. Eunice’s apparition also has been spotted around the nearby dam and in the river.

  1. I live just a few miles away from this bridge and recently went down there to see it. There was not a lot of energy felt there, but I brought a SB7 spirit box along and was able to talk to Eunice’s husband who said he was “heartbroken” that Eunice had been killed

    The story that I grew up with is that the woman was dragging ass after the raid of old Deerfield and the cut her head off and left her.
    I think this story has been hyped for glamor.
    From Colrain.
