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.

Seeking Info On Two Possible Ohio Crybaby Bridges

5

Not sure why (and I’m certainly not complaining), but the Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project has been getting a lot of traffic lately. Lots of people sharing their personal experiences, too, which is fantastic and will really help us build up not only the individual stories, but the timelines associated with each bridge…once I get all the stories up, that is.

Greely Chapel Road Added To Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project

0

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

2

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.

Crystal Springs Added To Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project

With a name as tranquil sounding as Crystal Springs, you might be surprised to learn that there are some dark, twisted tales associated with this bridge. But then again, we are talking about Ohio, right? Man, do we love our strange and spooky stuff!

Here’s all the updates you might have missed this past week:

Chillicothe’s Crybaby Tunnel page added

Crying Bridge page added

Interface Death – Forgotten Spirits II: Legends of Ross County documentary added to the Additional Information section of Crybaby Tunnel

Chillicothe’s Crybaby Tunnel Joins The List!

0


We have a new entry in the Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project: Chillicothe’s own Crybaby Tunnel.

This is a rather unique entry for several reasons. First off, it is one of the longest-standing ghost stories from Chillicothe. Perhaps more importantly, it represents a slight departure from the standard Crybaby Bridge legend in that here we are dealing with a tunnel as opposed to a bridge.

Oh yeah, and there’s also a dark and twisted non-Crybaby ghost story associated with the tunnel. So what are you waiting for? Click here to jump directly to Chillicothe’s Crybaby Tunnel.

Partial List Of Ohio Crybaby Bridges Released

OK, so I know everyone is impatiently waiting for me to launch the Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project here. And it’s coming, I promise. But as I’ve started compiling the data, I’ve discovered something; nothing is right about these places! Directions are wrong, street names are wrong, and even the type of bridge is sometimes wrong (railroad trestle as opposed to a covered bridge, for example).

Now I know that since I’m dealing with urban legends and the Internet, I really shouldn’t be surprised that so much information is wrong, but I am!

Still, what I have so far is nothing short of amazing and soon, very soon, you will be able to visit this site and not only see a list of Ohio’s Crybaby Bridges, but also read the legend behind each one. Lots of pictures and even directions…although I’m wondering if it’s too early to start the obligatory “don’t trespass onto private property” messages yet. Perhaps I’ll wait.

Anyway, to thank you for your patience, I thought I would tease you just a little bit more by releasing a partial list of the Ohio Crybaby Bridges that will be part of the project. I’ve encountered more than a couple of bridges that were either gone or else the story was completely bogus. The following, however, will most certainly appear in the final version:

Abbeyville Road (Medina)
Alliance Crybaby Bridge (Stark)
Brubaker Road Covered Bridge (Preble)
Cable Train Trestle (Champaign)
Cleveland-Massillon Road (Summit)
Crybaby Bridge (Highland)
Crybaby Bridge (Shelby)
Crybaby Hill/Harris Jones Cemetery (Henry)
Crybaby Lane / Euler Road (Wood)
Crying Bridge (Richland)
Crying Bridge (Miami)
Crystal Springs Crybaby Bridge (Stark)
Egypt Road (Columbiana)
Fudge Road (Preble)
Ghormley Road (Highland)
Gore Orphanage Road (Lorain)
Greely Chapel Road (Allen)
Helltown (Summit)
Hyde Road (Greene)
LeFevre Road (Miami)
Mary Jane’s Bridge (Richland)
Myrtle Hill Road (Medina)
Newton Falls Covered Bridge (Trumbull)
Palmer Road (Mercer)
Pfeiffer Crybaby Bridge (Hardin)
Philo Crybaby Bridge (Muskingum)
Rogue’s Hollow (Wayne)
Screaming Bridge (Butler)
Schrader Road Crybaby Tunnel (Ross)
Stover Road (Thompson Road) Crybaby Bridge (Union)
Tindall Bridge (Sandusky)
Wisner Road (Lake)
 
So what do you think of the list so far? Have you been to any of these bridges in search of ghosts? Better yet, been to a bridge that’s not on this list? If the answer to either of those questions (or both of them) is “yes”, drop me a line at jim@strangeandspooky.com because I want to hear your story. Who knows? Your story might make it into the Ohio Crybaby Bridge Project, making you the envy of your family and friends!
