BRIDGE: THE HANGER/BRIDGE

No Image

Location: Douglass, Kansas, USA
Built: Unknown
Status: Open

History

About a mile west of the city of Douglass, Kansas out in the woods, there is a small, old bridge that goes over  a creek. Near to it is an equally old tree on the northern side of the bridge. During the 19th century, the tree was used for hanging African-Americans in the Douglass-Rose Hill area, particularly those who disobeyed their masters.

The Douglass Historical Museum has information on the history of the tree, and they have an image of a lynching with three people hanging from it. In 2004, the tree collapsed, but it crosses the creek.

If you visit the bridge late at night, odd happenings will occur. Apparitions, strange noises, and orbs are just some of the activities that happen here.

BRIDGE: MATT’S BRIDGE

No Image

Location: Viola, Iowa, USA
Built: Unknown
Status: Open

History

It is believed that if you drive onto Matt’s Bridge and you park it/shut it off in the middle of the bridge, you will be pushed by the ghosts of those who have died on the bridge or near it. Those who have experienced this have reported seeing things and hearing things outside of the car. Once you leave the road, you will notice that there are handprints are all over your car (some of them may be yours).

It is also believed that coming on the bridge and doing this too many times will result in angering the spirits to the point where they either break your windows or try to push you off the bridge (this has been known to happen even on your first attempt if they had a bad night). If your windows are rolled down, strange noises can be heard from the woods, including voices.

A similar phenomena was on an episode of SyFy Channel’s Fact or Faked: Paranormal Files that took place in San Antonio, Texas. The “pushing” turned out to be just a downhill road. Since people reported seeing handprints in baby powder (they put it on their car after the car had been “pushed”), it was proven that the powder simply picked up the oils from the owner’s hands, as they did not appear when the car was washed first.
