Yesterday, on way to a party in Virginia Beach, my husband and I stopped in York County at the reputedly haunted Crawford Road Bridge, for my new nonfition ghost book I am working on right now. I took plenty of pictures, front of it, back , and even while standing inside. This was Sunday morning of September 6th. I hope to come back at night, take few more pictures.
The road is a lot of woods on each side and a calm country one. The kind you like to drive down. Hardly any other vehicles.
As for the bridge, it looked like the one picture I got of it from off the Internet. Lots of graffiti all over it, on the outside and inside, on the walls. There were KKK and Nazi symbols, along with the normal graffiti you would see. There were a couple of creepy words on the back side, up at the top. Looked like someone wanted to write witch and below it, the word, dark. As for the hauntings? Good question.
I felt something while there. I did use my recorder. if got any evps, it will be in my book, so I can not mention them here. Nothing out of the ordinary in ay of my pictures. Maybe when do the night time version, I will get some then. We shall see.
On the ghostly legends about this bridge (this is from my book, Haunted Virginia: Legends, Myths and True Tales)http://is.gd/2ZZTx:
"There’s a bridge on a section of road where
They say that an African-American woman in a white dress is seen standing on the bridge at the edge and then falls from it to dissipate just before hitting the pavement.
But the strangest stories that are told about this area that vehicles seem to stop running as they approach the bridge. Then the same vehicles start up again when they are pushed past the “haunted” spot. Not all cars need to be pushed though. Some say that their car shifts into neutral and will roll uphill some distance. Afterwards, they would check out their cars later and find hand prints all over it."I know that the story of vehicles put in neutral and suddenly will roll forward, with even hand prints on the paint afterwards, is in many other such legends all over the world.I have another such story about a witch in the witch chapter of Haunted Virginia: Legends, Myths and True Tales, set in another part of Virginia. Fellow author and good friend, Theresa Bane has another tale like mine in her ghost book, Haunted Historic Greensboro. And I am sure there are many others in other books or that people heard of.
If you know of one where you live, do share about in in the comments, so others can read about them. And do tell us where this place is.
