Emily's Bridge

The Gold Brook Bridge, Stowe Vermont

In the nineteenth century a beautiful young woman named Emily grew up in the town of Stowe. She came from an abusive and overprotective family.

The family was so overprotective that they would not allow Emily to be courted by any of the young men in town. However, one day a handsome young man came across Emily's path while she was doing chores. He instantly captured her heart.

Madly in love Emily introduced the young man to her parents. Her parents, deciding the young man was too poor and uncivilized, forbid Emily to ever see him again. Emily's parents had the young man dragged from their home while Emily watched in despair.

The young man could not be dissuaded. He met Emily while she was away from the house doing chores. Their love deepened and the young man asked Emily to elope. Emily's heart overflowed with joy. Not only would she be marrying the man of her dreams, but he would be taking her away from this oppressive life. They rushed off planning to meet at The Gold Brook Bridge the following night.

Unfortunately, Emily's parents discovered her plans. On the night that Emily was to elope they sent a couple of local thugs to find the young man and beat him unconscious so he would not make the rendezvous. They hoped Emily would believe that the young man had gotten cold feet and abandoned her. They received their wish.

Emily made her way to the bridge and waited. The night grew cold and her lover never came to claim her. Emily collapsed and began to sob, the thought of returning to her abusive parents entered her head and she became angered. She began to pound the sides of the wooden bridge until her hands were bloodied. Unwilling to return to her living nightmare Emily untied the rope that she used to bundle her belongings. She tied one end of the rope to a rafter of the bridge, the other end she tied around her neck.

She hung herself in the cold night. In the morning her lover finally arrived. Horrified, her lover cut her down and buried her near the bridge.

Today, locals know The Gold Brook Bridge as Emily's Bridge because Emily's angry spirit haunts it. Many people have experienced a disturbing phenomenon that has resulted in large scratch marks appearing on their cars. Others that have walked through the bridge have been clawed by Emily. They described it as if a pair of long nailed hands digging their way into their back and scratch down. Upon exiting the bridge they have bloody scratch marks traveling the length of their back, yet their shirt is not torn.

Some have reported hearing the sound of something dragging across the roof of their vehicle as they drive across. Upon investigation they see nothing. It's assumed this is the sound of Emily's feet dragging across the roof.

Others have reported seeing a white apparition inside and around the area of Emily's Bridge. Typically, the apparition is seen at night. Along with the apparition people have heard sounds of Emily sobbing; others have heard a helpless voice crying 'Help!’

i went to the bridge last night and i dident see anything but i fell bad for emily and i would like to lift her soul so these things dont happen to people anymore and also like to be her friend

Well, I've visited the site for many years now. Its all a waiting game, sometimes nothing happens at all, other times some major stuff goes down.

Last night I finally got some major scares. I brought some friends up who were visiting the area. It seems that it usually happens only to girls who come to the bridge but it has always been described as a burning sensation on both the arms and the back. Once you leave the bridge it slowly goes away but upon closer inspection you will see scratch marks. Not huge bloody marks, but VERY distinct scratches like hands.....

I have felt trembling, heard things, even have handprints appear on the car windows but never anything like this until last night. I made sure to take a bunch of pictures as well to document this.

Most comments and people say rediculous things, so far out it's easy to write it off as fake and BS. But in all honesty, in this case, I do respect and admire that bridge.

If you ever visit, check it out anytime from midnight until 2am as those are the times when things go down. Although there are multiple versions of the stories, it boils down to three presences. Emily, a child who was lynched there, and something else.

Check it out just for the experience, but don't be surprised if nothing happens. You have to keep visiting..... Took two years for the scratching to finally happen.

About 35 years ago, 3 friends and I visited the bridge - to make a long story short, she's real, and she attacked us. Someday I'm going to write down what happened - it's a night I'll NEVER forget.

I just went two nights ago with my boyfriend and some of our close friends. There was nothing...but i thought there was too much noise and talking w/ everyone so i decided perhaps she'd only respond to females? (just an idea) so i went in with my friends cousin...we're about the same age early twenty's...We walked in and our other friends were taking pictures the whole time. We both felt something just a feeling in our guts, in the far right corner of the bridge...something bad. Something telling us not to go there. i felt really itchy too...soon after she did as well. It felt like the floor was shaking a bit...could have just been from the water who knows..but we both felt it. Then something just told me to get out! just GO! so i took off like a bat out of hell lol. But the next day we looked at the pictures....In that very same corner we were scared of there were VERY obvious orbs. I was shocked and like everyone else i have major respect for the bridge. Scary and fascinating at the same time.

well i havent been there yet but i plan too it sounds like a hoot cant wait to to meet emily gonna spend the night there see what comes up

I went to emilys bridge with a bunch of friends and we were talking and asking emily questions and none of us really beleieved anything would happen. My friend decided to get out her cellphone and just start recording. After listening to the recording we heard a voice that we did not hear while on the bridge. It was a mans voice talking to us and answering our questions. we put it onto the computer and you can clearly see the spikes in audio when the ghost voice talks. It was the scariest thing that has ever happened to any of us. I now beleive in an afterlife. If you do go to emilys bride record yourself talking and asking questions. You wont beleive what you hear in response.

Oct 17, 2008 1:53pm [ 13 ]

I conducted my morning show live on the air from the bridge two years ago and a few things happened that I still today talk about on the air. Once again this year, I will be returning to the bridge at 4am to go live on the air via cell phone from inside the bridge in the dark. Tune in Friday Oct 31st (Halloween) for live happenings once again this year. You can listen online at www.froggy1009.com

Jan 6, 2009 2:33pm [ 17 ]

ok so i was visiting my cousin in vermont and he told me this crazy story. He and his friends like drove onto the bridge and stopped for a minute. Then when he tried to leave the car wouldn't move. he had his foot on the gas pedal, pushing it, but it wouldnt move like something was holding it. Finally she let go and a bout a mile up, he stiopped the car to see if it was a deicncy and there were white handprints on the back of the car. When he went to get something to wipe it off they were gone. I was there once in the day time, and in one spot i felt like a tingling in my stomach. Then when my cousin took me there at night, as soon as i saw the bridge i freaked out. I dont know why. somethin just said no. We had to drive through it, but thankfully nothing happened. I was like freaking for some reason. It was so weird.

I went tonight and we didn't see anything much. The only thing that happened was the radio was off and turned on by itself and then the lights wouldn't turn on. Nothing else. But I was scared!

I went last weekend with a couple of my friends maybe around 12. I was sooo excited to get there but as soon as we got there I totally started freaking out. I would not get out of the car cuz I was so scared. Nothing really happened. We parked right outside of the bridge. But my friend decided to go on the bridge so as soon as he got on it, it broke down. It was so scary. My friend told me how he went last time and the car broke down and started shaking and then he had scratches on his arm. I was like "great thing to tell me when we are here." Lol. It was really scary but I want to go again this summer with my boyfriend and a couple other people. Im gonna take pictures this time and stuff. I hope I dont get too freaked out.

Feb 3, 2009 9:38pm [ 24 ]

i went to emilys bridge last night on februery 2nd. I have dinner there off to the side on the dirt road and waited for the sun to set. At about 9:00 i was getting board so i put one of my ear bud head phones into my ear and started watching a movie on my iPod. So i turned my HD sony on in night vision and started to film. Shortly after i was devisted to see that my camera was filming at a strang angle because some kind of piece fell losse inside of the camera so i could only have adio. I waited for somthing to happen but nothing did and it was about 10:00. About 10 minutes later i saw a blue light shine on the hood of my car and i started to freak out, but of corse it was nothing exept for some guy comeing to tell me "you gotta turn them truck lights off to she the girl" i lafed off the creep comment and said thank you and good night then he walked back across the bridge to go home, contact me at slother34@yahoo.com so i can tell you what happened after that because nobody will belive me if i wrote it on the board.

Feb 6, 2009 2:03pm [ 25 ]

ummm i am going to email "mike" today. hopefully u can answer quickly because I am going up at the end of february. i hope you have pics. if u live in vermont which you probably do, it would be great to the video. thanks for the help.

my husband and i went to that bridge every weekend about three years ago and we would sit on it for hours at night and just listen in our car. we would bring our 2 friends with us and not every time something would happen but just about every time. we got scratches on the car you could here her tapping on the glass on the roof and sometimes even a little rocking of the car. around 130 am almost every time we went out we could here her scream or moan. at first i was scared but then i got used to it and was excited by it. we also had a car engine temp gauge that we would bring and we would watch the temp drop at least 20 degrees at a time on the bridge i have so many stories that i can tell but dont want to take up to much room in here but for the people that nothing has happened yet just keep going cuz when it does it is so worth it !!! we would like to go again but now we have three children and it is hard to find a babysitter for that many if anyone knows what i mean lol. but emily is definitely real!!!

Feb 27, 2009 12:53am [ 27 ]

About 20 days ago i left a comment talking about Emily's Bridge. I finished my mini documentery about the bridge and it is about 3 minutes long. Sadly the only actual edvidece of somthing happening was only in adio because my crap camera's lense or somthing was displace some how. And to answer a question i was asked, yes i do live in Vermont. I live in Williston Vermont and ever once and a while i go to stowe. OH and of corse nobody is really going to belive me but i actually did have strange minor dents and scratches on the sides and hood of my car. the scratches look to be from maby a rock or a nail or somthing.

---If you plan on going there for the first time please email me and talk with me because it is not a very good idea to go there. I will show you edvidence of the scratches, Pictures, and chilling HIGH QUALITY adio. Maby i can travel there with you next time you go, I now hove several spot lights, a helmet cam, 3 HD camcorders, 2 low quality camcorders, and like 10 tape recorders( to set up all over the bridge and around it).

----I would suggest to go there during the day light because siriously once you hear moaning and an incredibly loud pitch scream come from under the bridge like some one has latched themselfes to the bottem of the bridge, then trust me- you will never want to be any were near the bridge in the dark.

---Some people say that emily is not violent, But TRUST me there is somthing that lerks around that area that screatches and scratches you car. so im sirious BE CAREFUL. And what ever you do dont scream because some people say that it makes emily besurke when an intruder is mocking her and messing with her place of death.

Wow just typing this is freaking me out, there is no way i will be able to sleep tonight.

Feb 27, 2009 1:50pm [ 28 ]

i just got back from vermont, i never made it to the bridge, i was too busy working with other haunt spots. I truly am set on helping emily pass on. I would love to see the pictures, audio etc. I should be back in vermont this summer. I do not fear ghosts so going at night is not a problem. Please contact me at kmusicr@aol.com with any informtaion thank you.

Just don't go there. Seriously, There's no reason. I didn't believe in this kind of stuff but I figured I'd check it out. Dangerous and evil things that I can't explain and just want to forget about. Honestly people, there's no reason to go here, its a dangerous and evil place. Avoid it like the plague.

Mar 4, 2009 5:16pm [ 32 ]

Hey, I have not been there yet but from what everyone is saying....it sounds scary as hell and I really can't wait to go. I am going this weekend with a bunch of friends and I hope to get scared haha. I don't know if I believe in spirits or not but something tells me that I will know for sure after this weekend :-P thanks.

I used to live out in Stowe with my mother. I've lived in Vermont for 18 years now, and I have definitely been to Emily's Bridge.

Emily is no joke. She is a troubled ghost and I have experienced the cuts, scratches, voices, and other random things that happen there. It is true, the later you go the more you would probably see.

Don't get your hopes up though. You may or may not.

You'd be lucky if you did. Don't disrespect her. Don't torment.

Unless you want something bad to happen.

Appreciate the place.

Thank youuu.

Mar 14, 2009 6:08pm [ 35 ]

i went there with my moms at the time boyfriend and one of his kids and we got a picture with a ghostly lookin face and now me and my older brother r gonna go sometime soon so im hopin to see or here much more

Mar 17, 2009 7:55pm [ 37 ]

My boyfriends mother has pictures from Emilys bridge and it was at nighttime. And when you look at the picture you can see like a big ball of white cloud. I can not explain it. I have never see a ghost before so I dont know but what i do know is there is defently something up with those pictures, what could it be? Is it her? I guess we will never find out.

Mar 25, 2009 11:15am [ 38 ]

I have been to Emily's Bridge and it was pretty scary! one night that i went i came out with a scratch on my face. everytime i talk to my friends about it they look at me like i'm crazy!! so some night really soon i am going to bring my friend Carolyne. hopefully something will happen so that she doesn't think that i'm crazy too!!! lol!

Mar 26, 2009 10:01am [ 39 ]

I am soon to be going to Emily's Bridge with my best friend Shannon like she said right up top lol. It does sound interesting. But I'd hate for her to claw my face though... ahaha!!... I hope to be close friends with Emily, I wouldn't blame her for doing what she did.... Shannon and I will be bringing a whole bunch of guy friends with us and hope to have a bunch of fun!

Apr 7, 2009 1:32am [ 40 ]

look, id love to go to emilys but after reading all the posts i know whats happened. emily herself is not evil but if u check out websites it states that kids have been using the ouiji board which open the door for evil spirits. just leave her alone yall. shes not a freak show. thats more than likely why shes attacking yall. please, trust me

Well, I stopped at the bridge in Jan 09 coming back from Burlington Golden Gloves. I had my sister, step-brother, and my boyfriend was driving. We actually pulled all the way through the bridge and parked in the little parking lot on the right side of the bridge. The brook was way too loud at about midnight. My boyfriend does not believe in anything paranormal or supernatural so he just started to yell profanities out of the drivers side window, insulting The ghost of Emily. Next time we go there, I wont bring him but that would have been interesting if the name calling actually provoked her!!

Apr 26, 2009 11:33am [ 45 ]

my cousin, dad, and i went there about two years ago during the day time. we took some pics asked some questions, the usuall. but nothing happend. which was to be ecpected cause well it was day time. anyways a few days later we got the pictures back and out of all 20 or so of them only two had something in them. one had a white shoe lace thing across the pic that was facing towards the roof. it was not my fingure, and the camera didnt have to string attached thing. and the second im am not sure if it was just the markings in the wood, which is mosty likely. but there is a face hoovering over my dad. and a note to all the orbs that people see. the bridge is in the open, were there is dirt and bugs. when u take a picture and little white "orb" appear it is a 99% chance that it is just bugs and or the dust from walking around.. but yeah after reading all ur stories i really want to go again, but every one in my family is such chickens to go at night time. T-T sad times.

Apr 29, 2009 12:51pm [ 46 ]

Alright I grew up in stowe no further than a few miles away from Emily's bridge. My best friend Joe and I hunt in the woods right near the bridge and use to walk threw the woods to it. There is definitley wierd stuff that happens in there like a women crying and feet dragging but there was the first time joe and I took my dog there and as soon as we got near the bridge my dog freaked out after like 2 or 3 minutes of trying to come my dog jasper down he sat right next to me so his body was touching my leg and growled and whined. I do think Emily is in there but is Haunting really what she's doing or is she reminding us of how bad things can be or is she watching over who go's in that bridge, Joe and I believe she is still waiting, waiting for her love to come find her so they can run away together.

i went to the bridge last night with my buddys at midnight, and we heard stuff whistle buy, i heard footsteps, and we all saw alot of orbs in person, and we got alot in pictures, there was all the sudden like 70 orbs in the bridge or more, surrounding us, so we all freaked out and got out.

May 25, 2009 10:12pm [ 48 ]

Gah why does things always happen when i am not there. my friends and i went there the 23rd at midnight and saw nothing. but of course they were all chickens and i didnt get to stay no more then 10 mins. i need people to go with who are not scared of there own shadows, or the wind. (-.-)

Jun 14, 2009 7:07pm [ 49 ]

we went to Emily's bridge last night. We heard her moaning 5 or 6 times, we also heard her foot steps inside the bridge. A few of us actually saw her figure standing inside the bridge. when we left one car had a scratch on the side of it and our car had hand prints on the window... I will def. go back. i was SO freaky!

Okay.. I'll be sure not to call her a dumb whore.. Anyway, I'm going there tonight with a few friends and I'm hoping at least a little something will happen, just to prove that these stories are real!

Jun 21, 2009 7:56pm [ 52 ]

I got pictures from Emily's bridge last weekend...go to my link and notice the last 2 pictures...there is a figure hanging from the rafters inside the bridge.... We had TONS of experiences there, from screams, foot steps, scratches on hand prints on cars to orbs seen with the visible eye and the best was this picture taken...check it out! I had to brighten the picture because it was so dark...thats why it is not very clear...but you can totally see her and when i zoomed right in on it at home i can her her nose and lips perfectly...


Jun 22, 2009 10:01am [ 53 ]

I just returned from Vermont, and a visit to Emily's Bridge a/k/a Goldbrook Bridge. First of all, this bridge is not marked or numbered like many historical bridges in New Hampshire. We did find it though, and one of the locals made a comment to "watch out" that it was "haunted". I did not witness anything whatsoever, nor did we hear any noises at the time. My camera, however, has capability to video, and it did malfunction continuously at one spot every time I aimed at the area. I had just replaced batteries and had taken other footage, all without any problems. I still have the footage but have not downloaded to the computer yet. I will be interested to listen to the footage for any sounds or things that weren't picked up on the camera!

Jul 21, 2009 7:47pm [ 57 ]

My niece and I had our first experience with Emily. I made her out to be a sad yet kind spirit. I had a feeling we did over stay our welcome when she moved the car our girls were sitting in . My niece had a hand go down her thigh and it was cold for three hours after . Is this normal ? I felt the cold spots and had orbs around me . I have a question for yas. ..... On route 100 we were heading back toward the Cabot store in Waterbury ,, there was a fog and our girls and my niece witnessed a figure of a man floating across the road in the fog ... anyone else see this ever ???? We had been to the bridge and we were heading home and this happened ......I missed out on that one cause i was looking at the pics that had Emily in it ...

Jul 21, 2009 8:04pm [ 58 ]

I was just reading some of the posts on here and i really do not see her as an evil one ... we intoduced ourselves and told her our stories of love and brought her a gift as well ......here is my email we got a pic of as well ....... sugpunk2001@yahoo

I just got back from that bridge about a half hour ago. I didnt really see much but i definetly saw arms grabbing out torwards my friends and every once in a while it would get so cold that you could see your breath but only one person at a time. One of my friends actually got her on camera and have gotten scratch marks on his car. I have no doubts that that bridge is extremely haunted.

I was just at the bridge tonight, even though my friends and I have heard the bridge was haunted we had never heard of the things that actually happened. I never really believed in "ghosts" and still dont know if i do, but the things that happened at the bridge defiantly was freaky and scared me. We saw/heard almost everything that others have reported there but i never would have believe it if i had not been there for myself tonight.

my friends and i went to emily's bridge one night last december. We were driving around looking for the bridge when we got extremely lost. For some reason we decided to turn around, and we picked a random road to turn around in. As we backed up and prepared to drive away, the bridge all of a sudden was RIGHT in front of us. We got our of the car to take pictures, the flash being the only light in the night. All the pictures had little orbs.

Oct 22, 2009 3:45pm [ 65 ]

Me and my friends Sarah and Erin are going to go to the bridge this Halloween. Erin says she's going to cry she's so scared.

Oct 23, 2009 6:13pm [ 66 ]

I went to the bridge yrs ago . I felt something touch my back, No marks were left but did feel something. I was all alone at the time no one else was inside the bridge. A few friends and I are going back this month cant wait.

Oct 24, 2009 10:04pm [ 67 ]

Went there today as we traveled from New York to Vermont for the first time to see the attractions. I think it was like 2pm and we went across and then got out and walked around on it and nothing. I guess it happens mainly at night, I would visit again whenever in Vermont again.

We went last night with a bunch of our friends and at first we didnt see anything creepy going on but we did take alot of pictures. We saw this one picture online of her hanging in the corner of the bridge and when we went to take a picture there one of our friends heard a strange soft nice right behind her ear. It was deffinately a weird night for sure. On our way out we noticed that her name Emily was on the side of the bridge written out of straw yet when we first got there it was not there at all. I dont know but we are going back on Halloween so we will see if anything changes. Yet in our pictures we see faces in strange parts. We really think this place is haunted and its amazing.

Nov 1, 2009 6:03pm [ 69 ]

Me and my boyfriends family went last night, and we didnt have anything happen, but when i got home we added the pictures we took on the computer and there were orbs in 2 of the pictures. i am planning on going back soon.

Nov 1, 2009 8:19pm [ 70 ]

Okayy. So I went to visit Emily the night before Halloween this year..two nights ago. Nothing extremely happened while we were there. But when we left..everything appeared. Out of all the photos I took, one came out with probably 50 orbs around about five of us standing on the bridge. Some of the other pictures had one or two orbs. I have one picture of the side of the bridge I don't remember taking, and it looks like blood dripping down the side. My friends brand new camera..really good one too.....did not work at the bridge, not near it, not in it, nothing. It worked perfectly fine when we left though. After we got out of Stowe, and back into Morsville we stopped at McDonalds, and we noticed something strange on the back window. It was a hand print, on the inside of the car. All the windows had just been cleaned..so the hand print was not there before. When we took pictures of the hand print, they came out looking like an angel down on it's knees with her hands folded in front of her. Later on the next day, I uploaded everything onto my computer from my camera. My computer said that everything downloaded fine. I went back to look at the videos..because I didn't look at them yet. They're nowhere to be found! I usually never delete anything off my camera. I don't know what made me do it that night, but I did...so Emily really had something to hide that was captured on those videos..I don't kno what...but I know something happened..and she didn't want it exposed. We're planning on going back..not sure when, but we are. We're going for the videos again.

Our paranormal research and investigation crew is heading out to Emily's Bridge this Saturday night. Any suggestions?? I'll let everyone know if we find anything.

Nov 24, 2009 8:10pm [ 73 ]

My fiance' and I went to Emily's Bridge at night. We brought a camera with us. We drove thru, we parked beside the bridge at both ends, and we even stopped and shut off the engine and lights inside. Nothing happened. We were very scarred and in hopes of something to happen. We are not disbelievers, though. We will keep trying. We know she is there!

Dec 22, 2009 2:40pm [ 74 ]

i'm gonna go to this bridge and i mean might spend a few hours on it..... and to the people on here that believe that they can talk to her and all that bull ur pulling ur own leg i mean honestly ...... i have experience in this field like crazy .... when i was at school in vergennes vermont there were more active places even at the school i was at ..... it was a insane asylum before and i never ever got something like talking to a sipirt and stuff but yeah it was crazy and i did get some feed back when we were doing a circle down there in the basement and stuff but still no stupid stuff like some of u quote to have done.....

Jan 19, 2010 7:51pm [ 79 ]

Hey i'm a co-founder of a paranormal investigating team out of Rutland Vermont and i've heard about Emily's Bridge. It does sound interesting and my team and i would love to do an investigation there and see if we can debunk the things that people are experiencing or if we cant debunk it and collect some real evidence, we'll know its definitely haunted.

Feb 4, 2010 11:10am [ 80 ]

I'm freaked out because I'm 11 and I see ghosts! I went to Emil's Bridge and spoke to Emily in her after-life! She told me that she can never rest in peace until she has a proper funeral and grave stone! Then she started crying and she scratched me and I started to bleed! it was a site to see and not in a good way!

Feb 4, 2010 11:11am [ 81 ]

I'm really wondering if its really hunted Im 11 too can somebody tell me if its true of not? thanks:) and bubbles whats up! please tell us!

I made a comment here on 7/23/2008 - for those asking if it's real, the answer is YES. The stuff that happened to us was unbelievable, but true. Scared the crap out of us. BTW, provoking her is not a good idea...we did it and she got pissed. I mean, really, royally, pissed.

Mar 22, 2010 9:10pm [ 84 ]

I have known about Emily's bridge for many years and I have always wanted to visit and see for myself what goes on there...well i finally went up there this weekend with my boyfriend while we were in the area. Let me tell you I have never been so afraid. When we approached the bridge I immediatly felt a stronf sense of fear. We drove up around sundown and we crossed the bridge in my Subaru and parked on the dirt road. I got out and walked the bridge alone and I felt dizzy as soon as i set foot onto it and my ears started ringing. I ran off quickly to get my boyfriend to come on with me because i have heard she does not like lovers. He initially could not step foot onto it because he felt dizzy also and his ears also began to ring( i never told him then that i felt the same thing), and then his left ear went deaf. Other than that nothing was happening, we only had a strong sense of angry energy around us. Before we decided we needed to leave i was determined to get a reaction of some sort so i began saying her name loud and stomping my feet and baging the walls of the bridge hard. Nothing happened so we turned around to go back to the car and sure as hell we got a few feet from the end of the bridge and we heard a loud scratching noise on the wall, and then we heard loud thuds come from what sounded like the bottom of the bridge coming toward us fast and some kind of high pitch ring. We ran away so fast we didnt even look before we crossed the road. I drove so fast because i couldnt even belive it was real, last but not least we realized that my boyfriends bracelt was gone!!!!! He most certainly had it on before we got on the bridge too. I took alot of pics but nothing came out on them. I most deffinitely will never forget what happened that day. I feel like i would go back someday, but most certainly not at night. I would not try and make her mad or provoke her, this is an extreamly scary place.

Apr 8, 2010 10:31pm [ 85 ]

May 3, 2010 4:38am [ 91 ]

Me my mother, my two sisters, a molder sisters boyfriend went to the bridge. Only 10 miles away all of my sisters got big headaches, I was feeling lightheaded. We went on the bridge and heard a scratchin sound. We decided to sit on the bridge for about 5 minutes and heard a loud thump from towards the bottem of the car. I thought it was my sister just thumping her foot but realized she was sitting still holding her head. Then we heard a scratching sund from near my door and turned around, my mother couldnt handle the stress. When we got home and walked outside the next morning there were claw marks on the bottem of our van like someone was trying to pull themselfs out from under it. Then there were scratches going up the door to the handle. Im planning on returning with my friends to see it again and see if i can actually find a way to talk with her. This happened in 2010. I thought it was a mith till this happened... I dont even know what to say about the feeling.

May 12, 2010 4:57pm [ 92 ]

i've never been there, but planning on going. i heard it's really sketchy, so i'm looking forward to it!

I believe in ghosts 100%....I have never been to emily's bridge....I wish i could but can't because i live in Cottonwood and i don't even know where Vermont is....That and my mom would not want to go all the way to Vermont to see a bridge that is haunted.....But even though i believe in ghost if i ever saw one i would get the hell out of there....Cuz don't get me wrong i think that ghosts are VERY interesting.....I love going onto the internet and looking up ghosts and trying to figure out how they died....

Can I have your permission to use these quotes for a final project paper in my English class at River Valley Community College in Claremont, NH

Aug 15, 2010 1:58pm [ 98 ]

I've been to this bridge dozens of times and used to drink there as a teenager. The only thing I have ever heard was the river below, and the closest thing I have ever seen to strange lights was the blue strobe of the police telling us to leave

Aug 16, 2010 5:50pm [ 99 ]

me, my boyfriend, and Dylan went to emily's bridge last night and some really sketchy stuff happened. im a big believer in ghost and i do get scared easily and i will tell you the second you walk or go through the bridge you can feel as if something is there. my friend stopped his car in the middle of the bridge, rolled his window down and blasted the music. at first nothing happened so we parked the car on the pull off and we got out. i had my dog with me and she acted ok but her heart was pounding. at first my friend dylan went on the bridge while we took pictures with his phone and it appeared to be a white figure under his arm while he was leaning on the bridge. shortly after me, my boyfriend and my dog went on the bridge and stood there so dylan could take a pic. i was so scared, it felt as though something was softly running their fingers down my arm. in the pic it looks like a figure next to me. when we finally decided to leave we stopped in the bridge, turned the car off and said emily, get in the front seat. I of course was hiding under the blanket but my boyfriend took a picture of the front seat and it looked like the side of a human skull in the front seat of my friends car. i screamed to get out. we also heard whisper sounds while we were there. Whats really scary is while at my boyfriends house later that night it sounded like scratching noises coming from the side of the porch while we were outside. when we went back out to the other porch we heard whispering. HOPEFULLY it was just our minds screwin with us and not emily following us.

Aug 16, 2010 5:54pm [ 100 ]

I am Emily! I died in the 19th century. but my spirit hasn't moved on and it wont! you people can do and say all you want but if you come to my bridge i will mess with you. i love seeing people's fear! I hung my self from the rafter's so i wouldn't have to go home to my abusive family who made me believe the love of my life had blown me off. The scratches you guys feel are the lengths of my fingernails for i wish you all to feel the pain that i had. I WILL GET YOU!!!!

Aug 26, 2010 1:22pm [ 101 ]

my first time going to emilys bridge tonight. i have heard storys from friends and want to find out for myself if they are true. one of my friends went to the bridge one night and felt a push from behind by the rocks. she fell and skinned her arm all the way up. another one of her friends went there and left with marks going down the side of the car. this happend as they were leaving. maybe its just a bunch of made up crap but who knows. i will find out tonight.

Aug 30, 2010 3:23am [ 102 ]

I have never been to Emily's bridge, it sounds scary but now i am very curious im 13 and i plan on going there soon and hopefully.

Sep 3, 2010 11:34am [ 103 ]

sorry for my miss spelling...i live by the bridge and have had many incounters but almost none of urs have made any sence i think that most of thes are missing some facters for how did know emily reacted to a red rose......... shes not in any story sapost to.

Oct 4, 2010 8:39pm [ 106 ]

I heard about "Emily's Bridge" from a friend. I am really interested in the Paranormal and want to go there with my Boyfriend. I have been told that Emily is extremely violent especially towards couples, is this true? And If anyone has any photos I would LOVE to see them, send me a link..Thanks!

Oct 5, 2010 7:59pm [ 107 ]

I heard about "Emily's Bridge" when I picked up a copy of Vermont Ghost Stories by Joseph Citro. I laughed when I read that he has been to the bridge many times and hasn't ever experienced anything. I would be dishonest if I told you all that I wasn't highly skeptical, so I called up a friend who is a Ghost Hunting enthusiast. The 2 of us went there together and spent a weekend in Stowe, at precisely 1:48am we were parked on the bridge and we were feeling creeped out. So much like Taps and other paranormal investigators we pulled out a Tape Recorder and asked many questions, all why calling Emily by name. This is what we discovered... it will blow your minds.

We got 6 questions of white noise answers, and what we found out is that the voice is a "Male Voice" and the reason is because there is no Emily. The name of the spirit is Emile... and apparently he was the gay lover of another man. The rest of the story seems pretty consistent, he planned on running away with his lover Kent from a much poorer family, they were supposed to meet on the bridge. However when the family of Emile found out about Kentm, they prevented Kent from getting to the bridge that night and Emile's own parents hung him on the Bridge... they never wanted anyone back then to discover that their son was gay.

Emile attacks all women and couples because he never got to run away with Kent, his spirit doesn't seem to manifest for men who travel the bridge alone, why would it? Emile's issue is with women and happy couples not men that he may be attracted to.

Oct 22, 2010 9:14pm [ 108 ]

I went to the bridge at 10pm and stood there for a while. I then went back the next night even later. I had not seen anything paranormal. I also kicked the bridge, walked over it, and yelled at what was thought to be a ghost, no luck. I intend to return again and try to find or have a paranormal experience.

Oct 27, 2010 10:35am [ 109 ]

Ok i use to do ghost hunting a few years ago, and i heard about emilys bridge... oh and i live in vermont. I went to the bridge and my arms got scratched and stated to bleed. Then we saw a white figure hanging from the middle of the bridge, it screamed and ever since i havent been ghost hunting. Should i start ghost hunting again???

Oct 28, 2010 11:57am [ 110 ]

So i have heard about this bridge, and all of my friends want me to go, but i get really creeped out about stuff like that. I feel bad for Emily. And now I hope her parents feel really bad about what they did. I hope they never forgive them selfs for what they did to them selfts. They were probably mad cause there daughter was finally happy for once, and they just had to ruin that for her.

Nov 1, 2010 6:16pm [ 111 ]

went there are had a few things happen. 1) heard a creaking sound like old wood makes when it is put under pressure...he hanging from, the rafter probably. 2) my friend said "hi emily" and on a recording we listened to the next day, you can hear something say hi. 3) We asked her to whistle for us..nothing happened at the time but later we all heard a high-pitched whistle/screeching sound 4) right before this whistling, i saw a random blinking light like a blackberry makes...nobody had and electronics out at all.

Dec 18, 2010 11:14am [ 112 ]

I went there 4 a science class thing and i brought my friends along and my sister we were there 4 like 2 hours we took pictures and whats really weird is that my friend started 2 get sad and then angry it was really epic. We took pictures with me in it and some of my friends and we had 2 say we believed in ghosts and as soon as they took the pic white orbs covered me on the picture when i walked in the middle of the bridge it was cold like 20 degrees colder i think that's where she hung herself. When we left i looked out my window at the bridge and saw a women standing in the middle watching us leave and then she disapeered.

lol justus i didnt know u looked at this stuff

We at SVPI (Strange Vermont Paranormal Investigations) Actively investigate and monitor this bridge for paranormal activity. We have what we elieve is a picture of "Emily". It was a digital photograph taken inside the bridge. We have many interesting photographs of this area. Visit our site: http://www.strangevpi.yolasite.com or check us out on Facebook strange vpi

Mar 20, 2011 10:59am [ 118 ]

I went to Emily's bridge on March 12, 2011 with my sister and some friends. I got pushed, pictured could not be developed, the car was shaken. One of my friends took audio asking Emily to communicate with him Emily's response was "Help me" we ended that visit around 11pm that night. My sister and a few friends went back on March 19, 2011 and one of the guys got pushed half way across the bridge. the gas gauge went down to E fast. I feel that at this point Emily has become angry with all of us and I fear that if we go back she she hurt one of us. Adam again communicated with Emily and her response was unclear..

Mar 30, 2011 1:17pm [ 119 ]

Been driving over that bridge for the last 20 years at all hours of the day and night. Never noticed a single thing out of the ordinary. Guess she likes me.

I'm going to visit the bridge on my 13th birthday. I'm looking forward to seeing the ghost of emily. But ... i can't help but feel bad for her because of what her parents did. R.I.P Emily

Apr 2, 2011 11:01am [ 123 ]

And yes, there is a ghost there. you can tell just by looking at the photo's/video's. ans since she can actually hurt you... she's more like a polterguist but not fully. the differance between polterguist and ghost are... ghost: 1.) can't harm you 2.) can only make weird noises and aperances. 3.) they can't break/damage your property.

polterguist: 1.) can deffinatly harm u 2.) can damage your property 3.) they can possess you.

(demons are a whole differant story.) and i know you all probly think that this message is a load a crap but... this what i beleiven so please don't critisize this message. for example :::: let's say you beleiven goddesses instead of god, i wouldn't critisize you for what you beleiven... anyway... please don't critisize. R.I.P Emily

Apr 16, 2011 4:49pm [ 125 ]

When I went to Emily's Bridge I took a picture and saw a strange misty figure running away from the bridge and I could see the ghost wearing the old fashion clothing with the dress and bonnet on her head. On the lower right of the picture I saw another figure sitting on a rock down in the river. I saw a couple REAL claw marks not fake ones that some teenagers carved into the wall. If you have any strange photos or experiences at the bridge PLEASE do email me at whowho621@gmail.com Thank You!!

A few of us went to the bridge last night at about 1:50am, we stayed there for about an hour tried just about every trick we could think of and didn't see or hear anything. We drove through several times with the lights on, the lights off, and we parked on the bridge with the car off, nothing. We walked over the bridge stood on the bridge, stood on the bridge for extended periods of time with all our flash lights off. We even tried to provoke the spirit by various methods of yelling and name calling. No matter what we did we still saw nothing we took pictures, video taped ourselves and did a few recordings, we found nothing. I had chills when we first got there mostly from what my mind was creating and making me think but all in all we found nothing out of the ordinary our car never had problems nor our equipment. It was raining and lightning out so maybe we didn't hear anything because of it, who knows. Planning on making a second trip maybe with only one person and trying to find more results as of right now it seems a little less than haunted. Enjoy still a fun trip!

we went to the bridge last night at 1 am, tried to piss her off as much as we could. as soon as we got on the bridge the windows in my car fogged up big time. we thought nothing happened so we left, but when we got to a gas station there were scratches on our car. that bitch, its my new lexus.

I went to Emily's bridge last weekend! It wasn't that scary. At first when she started scratching my car I was a little scared, but she told me that was just because she didn't have a decent nail file.

It's freaky, guys. I definitely recommend it.

I heard emily doesnt like couples going to her bridge... so of course im gonna bring my girlfriend. I've been there before with a few of my buddies and nothing happened, so i thought if i brought my girl, we might piss emily off a little more. Well, enough to have her show herself in some pictures of something. I took a few flash pictures, i caught these wierd white dots behind us? Almost looked like a flash light pointing at us, but there was nothing. I was deffenitly wierd, i suggest going. If something happens then its a good experiance, just make sure to go at midnight.

I went to Emily's Bridge and never experienced anything... Full moon and late at night. What are people talking about??

Sep 13, 2011 10:59am [ 135 ]

I was trying to do a little research online and I couldn't find any death records or anything. All I found was her name: Emilay Bewch... If that is even her full name. Does anyone know more about her and her history?? It's strange that people say it's haunted but there isn't any records about her at all... Is it even her haunting? It's quite interesting... The thought has crossed my mind that there wasn't any records because it was in the 1800's but still... Planning on going up there and experiencing what people have been talking about in their blogs... We'll see what happens.

This bridge was retarded. We said some summoning Spell, and nothing happened. So then we figured we'd spice it up, and started singing Don't Stop Believing by Journey. Nothing. We got back in the cars, parked on the bridge, and rolled up while blasting Suicidal Thoughts by Biggie, trying to aggravate her. Nothing. So we got pissed, threw caution tape all over it and left.

My friends and I went to Emily's Bridge the other night. Two of us being males, and the other two being female. We thought we might might get a better reaction out of Emily. After hearing the stories of how Emily doesn't like men. An we went there with was a tape recorder and a flash light. We questioned weather anything was really going to happen or not. After a few mins of being there we still had not heard or seen anything. But after about 20 mins to half an hour of being there. We decided to give the tape recorder to the girls and see if they would have better luck. Wondering it Emily would rather talk to an other women, instead of a man.

My girlfriends then started to ask Emily questions on how she died and why she killed herself. An why her ghost still haunted the bridge. At the time we didn't hear anything, but when listening back to our tape recorder we happened to come across voices that weren't ours. Saying " I just want my daughter", " She was just a kid", " I'm here please help", "come here". We weren't sure what to really believe, an what we had just heard or not. But we all of us had been quiet at the time. Some of the voices had came in while behind one of our voices while talking. My friend an myself got scratch and pinch. while the girls go their hair played with. "weird we know". But none of us could explain it.

Not only that while asking a question "how did you died". We came across words that had been carved in the side of the bridge that read " Fell In". That had not been there before. Also when asking "why are you still here", the ghost spoke out saying " I just want my daughter". An soon after you here " She was just a kid" in a painful some what angry voice. An right before all this one of my girlfriends had ask Emily a question. My friend asked Emily are you there. If so flick the flash light or touch our one of our shoulders. An at that time my friend felt something on her right wrist. She just thought it might be her arm getting tired. So she switch hands with the tape recorder. Again she asked Emily was that you? ? If so can you do it again, an again on her left hand she felt something. An looking back on the tape recorder. We found when she had asked the questions. We heard "I'm right here" when she felt her right wrist touched. An then "come here" when she had asked the question again on her left wrist.

We also happened to find hand prints of pollen all over on my friend's car. A deep scratch mark on his car in the back on the drive side that wasn't there before. We heard someone scream, we saw a light on the other side of the bridge. An then on leaving, we asked asked Emily if she would like us to leave. An if so to give us a sign, an my friend's car begin to shack and our flash light went out. After that we left. And been looking over the recordings we took while on the bridge. So far we have found more voice and some unsolved mystery on what was there with us that night.

I went there a couplenof weeks ago with my friends. At first nothing seemed to be happening.... But i snapped a few pictures and there is this one that i just cant explain! Its a picture of my friend and what was supposed to be her boyfriend. But it wasnt! It was a pale woman with short black hair and even looked a little cubby. And another thing is that her boyfriend had a hat on. It was forward the whole time we were there and in the picture its backwards.... Could this be emily possessing someone in my picture?
