Maud Hughes Road has a haunted bridge known to locals as the Screaming Bridge. Locals say it has been the site of at least 36 deaths through accidents and suicides. Witnesses have reported apparitions, mists, hooded figures, strange lights, and a phantom train on the tracks below. There are many, many legends about the place. One tells of a man and woman whose car stalled on the bridge. The man got out to look at it and when he came back, the girl had been hanged from the bridge. The man then was killed as well, and both their screams are heard here. Another legend says a baby was thrown off the bridge and its mother hanged herself her afterward. Yet another tale is that a school bus driver lost control and all the children on the bus were killed.

  1. Um, you think that if an entire school bus of children died here that it wouldn’t be “a tale”? And that it would be a fairly easy thing to verify??

  2. yea and specters don’t usually appear in open areas. Not that it isn’t possible, but definitely not in this quantity.
    there is just no way.

  3. I was on this road at 7 years old with my cousin and his girlfriend me and my cousin got out the car heard this strange and even seen The Apparition of a woman hanging underneath the bridge

  4. My family (the halls – yes same ones as the little store) owned the land right there and my dad and his sisters grew up there and so did i. Was probably us and our family the people heard at the bridge all those years. They tore the house and barn down split the land up and sold it about 15 years ago. Bad ass place to explore. Remnants of super old train tracks random wooden cabins around back there (not sure if they went through and tore those down too) my favorite place i ever been or lived my grandparents had hand built that house most amazing place ever i remember when i was 6 yrs old (almost 28 now) my dad drove some cars he stole down the tracks there on Thanksgiving lmao we would enter through the blocked over grown driveway down the street and walk a good distance through the woods to where we would camp
