Avon Haunted Bridge

You are here Home  > Bridges >  Avon Haunted Bridge

The Avon Haunted Bridge is a railroad bridge that was built in 1906, and legend has it that it’s haunted. So the story goes, a mother was walking with her baby on the tracks when they fell to their deaths. Locals would say every time you drove under the bridge you had to honk to drown out the sound of the ghost of the mother’s wails. Some locals still honk today.

    1. Just a word to the wise. It is against federal law to trespass upon the railroad ballast and tracks. Additionally, if you are up there, trains are unable to stop in time and you will be killed, or incredibly maimed if struck.

      My sister and I had some time to kill in Indianapolis, we Googled near by haunted location and found this gem. I can’t say if the bridge haunted or not, but the scenery is beautiful.

    3. I have finally been there. The area is not as big as pictures and videos make it seem. Be aware though if you go at night and hear screams or crying, there is a neighborhood that is about 100 yards south of the bridge and people can mess with you. The access points on both sides are relatively easy to get to. I was there about 20 minutes until and train came and I realized it was time to go.
