Every state has stories that are told throughout generations. Some of these are spooky, while others are uplifting. Either way, they tend to be fascinating and worth hearing. Mississippi is certainly no exception. In fact, located down a dirt road in Clarke County sits an old bridge with a sordid past. The story of the hanging bridge in Mississippi will forever remain a part of a small town’s history. Spanning the Chickasawhay River in Shubuta, the now infamous bridge was the site of at least six hangings, earning it the nickname “Hanging Bridge.”
Even though this abandoned bridge hasn’t been used in years, its sinister reputation continues to haunt the small town of Shubuta. Are you familiar with the story behind this infamous bridge? Have you ever visited the hanging bridge? If so, we’d love to hear your thoughts.
