Alabama Oddities: Haunted Bridges

Amanda Herman


Bridges harbor so much legend and lore, and Alabama holds some of the most eerie tales of paranormal passageways. Here, I am sharing the history and folk stories of the cursed Mary Daniel Bridge of Crenshaw County, The tragic haunting of Bayview Bridge in Birmingham, the Wild Woman of Pea River who died trying to reunite with her abducted child, the paranormal portal of Hell's Gate Bridge in Oxford, and the tale of lovers torn apart at Cry Baby Bridge in Saraland. To read more about Cry Baby Bridge, check out Sean's blog here. Cross over into the first Alabama Oddities Podcast Collection, written and read by Amanda Herman.
