The Legend Of Ohio’s Screaming Bridge Will Make Your Hair Stand On End
Few people realize just how many haunted bridges there are hiding in the Buckeye State. (Be sure to check out this list.) Long-forgotten structures of the past with roads that are no longer drivable, they’re often the center of Ohio’s creepiest legends. One such bridge is the infamous “Cry Baby Bridge” in Salem, Ohio. While the details of the legend are unclear, the screams of a baby late into the night aren’t.
During these uncertain times, please keep safety in mind and consider adding destinations to your bucket list to visit at a later date.
To see closer images of the bridge and the surrounding area, watch the short video below:
