On Shenango Road, just before it meets Ashwood Road, is Summit Cut Bridge (sometimes incorrectly referred to as Summer Cut Bridge). The bridge, locals say, has a ghostly white lady. Legend has it that she fell off the bridge onto the railroad tracks in 1894. Her spirit is said to appear around midnight on rainy nights, walking along the tracks.

  1. Her name was josephine cox married to leroy cox which were my great great grandparents and from darlington Pennsylvania. .she was in horse and buggy and her horse was spooked by the train whistle which threw her from the bridge.

  2. My great-great-uncle George H. Durke returned home after the Civil War and worked for the Pittsburgh, Ft. Wayne & Chicago RR. He kept payroll records for the work crew who widened Summit Cut in the late 1800’s to make room for four tracks. Yes, at one time there were four tracks through the cut. Of course, this was before Josephine Cox fell to her death from the bridge.
