The story of Gold Brook Bridge.
Gold Brook Bridge is
now known as Emily's Bridge because that is what it is and whom it
truly belongs to.
built by John Smith in the year 1844 in Stow, Vermont this bridge
was meant to convenience people needing to cross a brook when
wanting to get around the three villages of Stowe, Vermont.
Now it is abandoned
(though still beautifully preserved) by the people who live around
it as it is said to be haunted by a severely violent ghost, Emily.
According to the legend, over a hundred and
fifty years ago, a girl named Emily lived in the village of Stowe.
It has been said that she had been forbidden to marry her lover by

day as well as night. Perhaps the villager’s decision to always keep
the bridge clean and beautiful is more of an appeasement to bitter
Emily than anything else. After all, who can blame them?
