M Street Bridge

Visitors to the bridge should keep a lookout for two ghosts. One is a phantom stagecoach, which locals saw from the early 19th century to the early 20th century; the other is a drummer boy who had been knocked off-balance by a strong breeze and drowned. Witnesses say they have heard his soft drumming, which got louder as they neared the center of the bridge and disappeared when they got to the place where the boy drowned.
