About Cry Baby Bridge | Crybaby Bridge

South Carolina

South Carolina was one of the original 13 colonies that later became the United States. The proprietary colony of Carolina was first settled at Charles Town (Charleston) in 1670.

South Carolina was also the first state to declare secession at the beginning of the Civil War.

Union, South Carolina:

Union is located in Union County, South Carolina. Union has a population of about 9,000 residents.

Both Union and Union County were named after the old Union Church that stood a short distance from the Monarch Hill. When it was first founded, Union was known as Unionville; later it was shortened to Union.

Union was one of the first towns settled in the area and was untouched during the Civil War because the Broad River flooded and turned Sherman’s troops away from the town.

Cry Baby Bridge in Union, South Carolina:

Cry Baby Bridge is located near Rose Hill Plantation on 2677 Sardis Road in Union, South Carolina.

As with many Crybaby Bridges throughout South Carolina, and the United States, locals claim that a young mother threw her baby off of the bridge into the river below. In some Cry Baby Bridge stories, the mother is forced to throw her child into the river. In others, someone else besides the mother actually drowns the child, the mother, however, still haunts the location.

Ghosts and the Paranormal at Cry Baby Bridge in Union, South Carolina:
