Avon Bridge - Danville IN Real Haunted Place
This bridge is half a mile south of U.S. Highway 36 on CR 625 and is believed to be haunted by a ghost (or a few) that are said to moan or cry tears onto the bridge. Legends say the ghost is that of Henry Johnson, a construction worker who drank a lot, slipped while the bridge was undergoing construction and died with his face stuck in the wet cement. Other stories say that the ghost is that of an African-American or Irish construction worker who fell inside the framework of a bridge support while it was being worked on, with his arm hanging out. The easiest thing for workers to do was seal him in the cement, cutting off the dangling arm. A third story says a young woman was walking while carrying her baby, when her foot was caught in a railroad tie. She was able to free herself right before the train came, jumping off the bridge. She lived, but her baby died. The mother died shortly after of grief.
