EMILY'S BRIDGE, STOWE

The town of Stowe is best known for its mountain resort and for the Trapp Family Lodge where one of the Von Trapp children (from The Sound of Music) settled after escaping Europe. However, it is neither of these things that attracts fans of the paranormal. These types of visitors are more interested in Gold Brook Bridge, or Emily’s Bridge as it is more commonly known. It is said to be one of the most haunted places in Vermont, haunted by the spirit of a broken hearted woman named Emily. There is no concrete record of the exact circumstances surrounding how Emily died, but the most common theories are that she drove off of the bring in her carriage or hanged herself from it. Whatever the cause of her death was, it is said that visitors to the bridge get scratches on their cars, and even report being grabbed or scratched themselves. The spirit seems to be particularly hostile to males crossing the bridge which many say is due to the fact that Emily killed herself after being jilted by her true love.
