Real Haunted House

Governor’s Bridge

Anne Arundel County, Maryland

Many years ago, a young unmarried teen-aged girl became pregnant. Afraid to tell her parents, the girl took her newborn baby and dropped it over the side of the bridge. Realizing what she had done, the girl jumped from the bridge and fell to her own death. Today, the woman stands in the middle of the bridge, frightening drivers. One truck driver drove into the side of the bridge trying to avoid hitting the woman. When police went to investigate the scene, there was no evidence of anyone having been on the bridge.

Yeah, there’s supposed to be an old satanic church nearby(mostly BS)

There’s another variation of the story,

A family was in a car accident, every member died…. except the crying baby that later died at a local hospital. Supposedly you can still hear the crying. :/

Sooo….she was afraid to let the world know she was pregnant…aaaand yet she managed to give birth unnoticed? Bizarro. I do believe in ghosts, but this one seems a little messed up. Unless she was living on her own…I don’t know. -.-; O.o

I heard about the bridge where the woman dropped her baby in the lake and then felt guilty so she jumped in to kill herself.My parents passed across that bridge to go fishing one day while they were passing across that bridge they were frightened by a woman crying and soaked with water.They stopped to ask her what had happened and why she was wet and crying but she soon vanished into thin air.

In reference to earlier comments, this is different from Cry Baby Bridge. Cry Baby Bridge is in Upper Marlboro, Md, further down Rt. 301. The directions to Governor’s Bridge are: From Washington, D.C., take Rt. 50 East toward Annapolis. Get off on 301 South (Crain Hwy.) and turn left of to Governor Bridge Rd., if you get to Patuxent River Rd., you’ve gone too far.

i’ve heard tones of stories about Govenors bridge, the ghost car, the unmarried pregnat teen. One time my bro and i wen’t fishing down at Govenors bridge like at 5 or 4 in the morning. We were makeing jokes abouts the ghost stories that our parents told us about the bridge and all the suden we hear wispers and crying thats when we packed our stuff up hoped in the car and drove out of there and once we were in the car it was hot out side it like summer time then but when we went into the car it was like below zero and it felt like we weren’t alone.

I’ve lived in Lothian MD years ago and that bridge is off of Central Ave. RT. (214) just pass SIX FLAGS south. On the right is Harwood Rd. and Governer Brdg. Rd. is directly across on the left. My sisters and I use to travel Gvrnr. Brdg. Rd. as a short cut to Ft. Meade back in the day. We had never ever heard about this story. However while coming from the Ft. Meade area one night we traveled this rd. Afar off we saw this lady in white cloths that was glowing briter then the car lights. We slowed down and watched this lady slowly look at us with this lost look. She was soak and wet. Doing as black foke do, we turned that car around so fast and went back down Davidsonville rd. nstead. Once we got home we talked about it and could not phathum if it was real. I’t had to be, because all 3 of us saw the samething. I for one always believed in ghost, but niether of my sibblings did, until that summer night in 1991. Sence that time none of u have traveled that Rd.
More power to the next one.
