Real Haunted House

Crybaby Bridge

Newton Falls, Ohio

This covered bridge with a covered pedestrian walkway was built in the 1800s and is the oldest of its kind. Legend has it that a woman decided to murder her baby and thus threw him off the side of the bridge where he plummeted to his death. Since then, many have reported hearing a baby’s cry coming from beneath the bridge.

Your all worong, that is not even how the story goes, this is the real one, a phyco women was walking with her nonstop cying baby. The women was tired of it cying , and the only way it would stop was if she tied a rope around its neck, so she did this and hung it on a branch, then the branch broke and the baby fell into the water. It is said that you go to the bridge on a friday night at midnight, and you hear the babycrying, and a branch brake….. I get you all non belivers and everything, ya it could be made up, but it could be true!….Peace Out*…Lafunda

The crybaby bridge in newton falls has definately been an attraction. This has made many people travel from near and far to listen for the murdered baby. If you know your way around the place you will find an old farm on the other side of the bridge that has been there for years. This farm has a bird called a picock! The noises you hear are not from a baby they are from a bird!!!!!
