Pitcher Man - Goose River Bridge

You are here Home  > Bridges >  Pitcher Man - Goose River Bridge

Legend has it that William Richardson threw a 1783 party to celebrate the end of the Revolutionary War. He drunk more than his fill and made sure everyone else did too, carrying pitchers around and making sure mugs were always full. He is said to have wandered off from the party and eventually was struck on the head by British sympathizers and left to die on the bridge. He is now said to be Pitcher Man, who haunts the Goose River Bridge, offering startled his pitcher to startled passersby. If you are driving, he may thrust his ghostly pitcher of ale through your car window.
