Stay Away From Delaware’s Most Haunted Road After Dark Or You May Be Sorry

Seaford or Woodland residents know all about Delaware’s most haunted road – a short bridge on Route that’s known locally as Maggie’s Bridge. According to local legend, a young woman named Maggie Bloxom was decapitated in an accident on this bridge in the late 19th century. To convince you further, a local cemetery has Maggie Bloxom’s grave, and she did die young. Maggie, pregnant at the time of her death, continues to linger at the spot, searching for her lost baby – and perhaps her head. When you get to the bridge, you’re supposed to get out of your car and yell into the night “Maggie, I have your baby!”
