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.

Conceptualized and 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 her parents and so she and he made plans to elope together. They agreed to meet at the Gold Brook Bridge that night but when night fell Emily found herself alone and abandoned by her lover who never came for her.

Heart broken and simmering with rage, sadness and despair she was apparently driven mad as the force of this abandonment coupled with her anger against her parents hit her and hanged herself from one of the beams of the bridge.

Since then villagers dare not cross the bridge as her spirit lives on inflicting pain and damage to those that venture onto it. A lady's voice is said to call out occasionally. Ghostly figures have been sighted on the bridge as have mysterious lights. Cars and horses have been viciously clawed by something invisible during the 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?
