Pfeiffer Crybaby Bridge Added To Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project

0

One of the reasons I decided to start the Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project was to catalogue and chronicle all of the alleged locations in Ohio. This meant not only focusing on the more well-known ones, but also the ones that are really obscure or, in the case of the latest addition, the Pfeiffer Crybaby Bridge , ones that are pretty lean when it comes to specifics.

Indeed, it would appear that the Pfeiffer Crybaby Bridge tale originated from a single online source and spread across the Internet, picking up no additional specifics as it spread. Somewhat frustrating when trying to research, but definitely a testament as to how the Internet has given ghost stories and urban legends a way to spread further faster.

OK, enough rambling: Go have a look at the Pfeiffer Crybaby Bridge  entry in the database. And if you’ve got a story to share, please do so as you could potentially save this tale from being banished to urban legend obscurity!

As always, if this is your first visit to the Project, a good starting point for you will be the Project’s Home Page.

Palmer Road Added To Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project

0

Disembodied cries in the night. A ghostly figure darting across the road. Even the devil himself making an appearance. Must be time for another addition to the Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project!

As you’ll soon find out, while the Palmer Road Crybaby Bridge might be short on specifics, it more than makes up for it by somehow working Satan into the spooky tale. And while he hasn’t been spotted since he snatched up an entire family, there’s no telling just what still might be lurking out here in the shadows, waiting for someone foolish enough to venture out after dark!

So what are you waiting for? Have a look at the Palmer Road Crybaby Bridge’s entry in the database.  And as always, if this is your first visit to the Project, a good starting point for you will be the Project’s Home Page.

Newton Falls Covered Bridge Added To Crybaby Bridge Project

0

I can think of no stranger or spookier way to get this ol’ blog up and running again than by adding another location to the Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project.

The Newton Falls Covered Bridge holds a special place in my ghostly heart, too. The main reason for that is because its history is made up of that unique combination of historical facts and urban legends that I’ve come to know and love. So what this bridge lacks in facts regarding its ghost story, it more than makes up for with its rich history. Heck, not even a tornado could take this bridge down!

So go take a peek at this bridge’s entry in the Crybaby Bridge Project. And as always, if this is your first visit to the Project, a good starting point for you will be the Project’s Home Page.

Lefevre Road Added To Crybaby Bridge Project

0

It is with great fanfare that I present to you the Lefevre Road Crybaby Bridge: Officially, the 20th Crybaby Bridge on the list!

Although, to be honest, Lefevre Road pales in comparison to most of the other bridges on the list. There’s really not much in the way of backstory or first-person accounts to really make this particular legend shine. But hey, it ended up being #20 when I put all the bridges in alphabetical order, so there you go! Anyway, the extreme lack of specifics means that it’s up to you guys to help fill in the details. So if you know anything about this bridge, let me know!

Helltown Added To Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project

Come now, you really didn’t think we could compile a list of Ohio Crybaby Bridges and NOT include Helltown, did you?

If you’re unfamiliar with the legends of Helltown, give that link a little click and get yourself caught up. Suffice to say, the legends associated with Helltown have become so engrained in Ohio ghostlore that dare I say they’d rank near the top of any list of Ohio’s spookiest locations.

Greely Chapel Road Added To Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project

Long before my personal addiction to Kewpee hamburgers, my love affair with Lima, Ohio, began with the bridge on Greely Chapel Road. During my first trip out there around 2001, it was just another Crybaby Bridge. Of course, the more I dug, the stranger the stories surrounding this bridge got.

Several years later, I got involved with the annual Lima Lantern Tours and that’s when the stories really took off! Seems like everyone I spoke with during the Lantern Tours had a weird story to tell me about the bridge on Greely Chapel Bridge. There were so many stories that when the idea to create a database of all reported Crybaby Bridges in Ohio popped into my head, Greely Chapel Road was the first bridge I wrote down on my list of “must-haves”.

OK, enough reminiscing! Click here and enjoy a virtual visit to the latest edition to the Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project: Greely Chapel Road Crybaby Bridge.

If this is the first time you’ve stumbled upon my little Crybaby Project, swing on over to the Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project home page first to get caught up on what this whole thing’s about!

Gore Orphanage Road Added To Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project

0

Ask anyone to compile a list of the most popular “haunted” locations in Ohio and Gore Orphanage will almost certainly appear near the top of that list. Not only is the legend of Gore Orphanage a popular one, but the stories associated with the location have continually changed over the years, making it incredibly hard to separate fact from fiction. So of course, it was only a matter of time before a Crybaby Bridge legend became associated with Gore Orphanage, right?

But where did the legend originate and can it be verified? Are there really ghostly children running amuck on this bridge? Well, what are you waiting for? Click here and check out the legend of Gore Orphanage Road’s Crybaby Bridge!

Of course, if you need to catch up on all the other Crybaby Bridges currently on file, or this is your first time here, you might want to visit the Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project home page first.

Fudge Road Added To Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project

Ghostly reminders of a drug deal gone bad. Bloodthirsty monsters creeping closer to your car. Murderous midgets.

All this, and we haven’t even gotten to the bridge yet!

Fudge Road has long been rumored to be haunted, so it should come to no surprise that the road has its very own Crybaby Bridge, too. What is surprising, though, is that the bridge was one of the last things on Fudge Road to gain its haunted reputation.

So how did the legend get started? Is it really haunted? And what of the story that someone was recently murdered on the bridge?

All of those questions (and more) will be answered when you read about the latest edition to the Project: the Fudge Road Crybaby Bridge. Just give a click here and off you go!

Of course, if you need to catch up on all the other Crybaby Bridges currently on file, or this is your first time here, you might want to visit the Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project home page first.

Egypt Road Joins The Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project

0

What better way to celebrate Friday the 13th than by adding a Crybaby Bridge that’s also supposed to be cursed? That would be the case with the infamous bridge in Salem, Ohio.

What’s more, this bridge is one of the few Crybaby Bridges where the stories of murder taking place here just might be true! OK, they are a bit exaggerated, but believe it or not, the body of a murdered woman was recovered right next to the bridge!

So give a click and read all about the latest edition to the Project: the Egypt Road Crybaby Bridge.

Ever Been To A Crybaby Bridge In Ohio?

Photo I took for Weird Ohio of the alleged Rogues Hollow Crybaby Bridge, circa 2004

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!
