Ever Been To A Crybaby Bridge In Ohio?

You have? Then I want to talk to you!

I am currently in the process of compiling data for my Crybaby Bridge project, which will launch this summer on this very site. Basically, it will be a somewhat comprehensive list of all known Crybaby Bridges in the state of Ohio, including the legends attached to each bridge and what, if any, specific ritual you need to do in order to be able to hear the ghostly baby cry.

I will also be including photos of all of the bridges as I’m making it a point to personally visit each and every one, just to see if I can experience anything myself. And that’s where you can help! I want to know what happened when you went to the Crybaby Bridge. Did you hear the baby cry? Anything else weird happen? Or is the story just BS and absolutely nothing happened? Either way, I want to know!

Lick Road–a Crybaby Bridge in the making

Drop me a line at jim@strangeandspooky.com and tell me all about it. I’ll even include your story on this site because, after all, I’m a big fan of giving credit where credit is due. You don’t even have to use your real name if you don’t want to.

Right now, I have compiled information on 32 alleged Crybaby Bridges in Ohio, so chances are, the one you’ve visited is on my list. If that’s the case, I’ll have information that I can share with you about the bridge, too. See how that works? Everybody wins!

So come on and write me that e-mail!

    1. I don’t currently have the Ridge Avenue Bridge in the Crybaby database because, while it’s a great story, it doesn’t really qualify as a Crybaby Bridge.

      Put another way, there’s no baby involved with the Ridge Avenue story and no one has reported hearing a baby crying at the bridge. Unless, of course, you’ve heard a version that includes a baby and/or crying. In which case, please share!!!

      1. Well, the baby was in utero but I thought there were reports of people hearing a baby crying. I checked a few sites but didn’t see it. I’ll check some more and let you know if I do find anything.
