New England is known for its lovely covered bridges, but some are more likely to elicit dread rather than delight. Take Emily’s Bridge in Stowe, for example, a 50-foot-long bridge that is said to be the site of a young woman’s suicide in the mid-1800s. According to legend, the woman (Emily) was supposed to meet her lover at the bridge to elope, but ended up hanging herself from the rafters when he never showed up. Today, Emily’s ghost is said to maliciously haunt the site, clawing at passing cars and even scratching the backs of pedestrians until they bleed. There are slightly less menacing spooks as well, like images of a white apparition and strange voices and footsteps coming from the tunnel.
