One of those stories that just generate in small towns, a cautionary tale if you will. This bridge is reportedly haunted by the ghost of a young woman who was raped and murdered and thrown off the bridge, her body never recovered. Although no evidence of such a case exists, it makes such a compelling story, that’s almost irrelevant. Not to mention the bridge is only about 3 feet off the ground and the water is hardly a rushing torrent.
