Trestle Bridge has a legend with a ghost. So the story goes, a farmhouse once stood nearby, and it burned down late one night. The owner went to the barn to try to save the horses, and the wife and son went to the train tracks under Trestle Bridge to try to flag down a train. Tragically, they were too close to the tracks and were killed by the train while the man was dying in the barn. Now, folks say the man’s spirit inhabits the area.

  1. Been here many many times over the years (20+ years) never heard or seen anything spooky or creepy, just an old outdated bridge in the middle of no place

  2. I went there last night because i wanted to see if anything spooky would happen and I hear a child scream, it was very loud and clear. I got back in my car and took off! Shit scary af

  3. Who owns the property now where the house and barn sat back in the day and will they let ppl walk around and look. Also, was this site on the south or north side of tracks?

  4. This is a photo that my friends and I took at the trestle. I didn’t notice the figure to the right of the photo until I lightened it up on my computer, and no, it’s not one of my friends standing there either.
