About Main Street Bridge

Location:

Located just west of Van Buren Street. A good view can be had from the parking lot near the bridge.

History:

In the 1880's apparently people reported that they had seen a "Lady in White", wearing long flowing clothes who walked into the middle of the Main Street Bridge and then vanished. They thought the woman had jumped from the bridge and the reports were actually published in a local newspaper. A second sighting occurred a week later. Then, shortly after that, the White Lady was again seen in a carriage driving wildly until she reached the middle of the bridge where she again disappeared. The final sighting of the alleged White Lady was even more fascinating. The police were keeping watch and spotted the White Lady giving chase. When they had nearly caught up to her, they threw a blanket over her. But, the blanket fell to the ground. Again, she had disappeared.

Local legends regarding the Lady in White have been circulating ever since these newspaper accounts in the late 1800's.

Haunting:

Reports of a white lady who walks over the bridge and then disappears.
