Real Haunted Houses

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.

Ron says:

March 23, 2006, 10:17 am

Vicki says:

March 25, 2006, 2:28 pm

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.

I live fairly close to the bridge. If it is the same bridge I used to ride over on my motorcycle years ago…it is a one lane bridge (at least it used to be) and very low to the water. I can believe she dumped the baby in and killed it. But if she jumped, she would not have died – not from that height. It was really rural and isolated when I used to ride back there.

There was another more believable story – about two cars hitting headlong on the bridge (to cross – you had to wait if another car was coming thru). Supposedly, some people were hurt and somebody got killed. It would make more sense to research the bridge and see if anybody REALLY died on or near the bridge.

I live near this bridge and have been there many many many times. Most of the time late night with lots of friends. I have also partied in the near by woods. There have been many creepy sounds but I’ve never heard the sounds of the “cry” but I still am hopeful and look for the trouble. There did use to be an old church not far from there all alone in the woods, I have been there it’s on the P.G. county side. That place was creepy felt like I was being watched from downstairs…..But as far as the bridge…I have seen white flashes in the woods but nothing we stayed to see more of…I will still try to hear, you surposed to be there at midnight……….happy haunting

Well, I know a different place, Old Ellicott City. You might have heard of Creepy College or Hell House as I like to call it, but they also have a cry baby bridge, and if you put your car in neutral, something actually lifts it up the hill! Right by both of the “attractions”, is 7 hills. Alot of people die there because they are reckless drivers, but if you go be careful, 7 hills is on college ave in ellicott city hell house and the bridge is right after you get off the road.

Directions from Brooklyn-take 97 to rt 540 east, then follow Eric’s direction above.
I remember years ago joy riding to the bridge late one night because of the ghost stories told. The story I heard was that the teen hung herself from the middle of the span after dropping the baby over.
Well the night we took that ride, we got a flat tire just after we crossed the bridge. It was pouring down rain and the one guy we had with us didn’t want to get out of the car(he was afraid) We all ended up standing next to him while he changed the tire. We were scared to death! But… never really heard or saw anything. The fear was the thrill!!!

Samantha says:

August 18, 2006, 9:00 pm

yeah i have been there too many times…when i was first taken there i was 16 and had recently just got my license…my friend thought it would be funny…so she was giving me directions and then i end up on this one lane bridge…so thats when she tells me to stop and turn my car off and make sure the windows are rolled down..i started to get a little freaked out about my friend…and left but none of us ever saw anything…after that i would always take my friends there you had never heard of it and scare the **** out of them..but nothing would i dont know if i would belive that it is haunted…i think that there might have been a murder/sucide but i really dont think it is haunted…i have now been there tons of times and i can honesty say that i have never seen anything

>>>>>Brianna writes: matt & alyssa u 2 need 2 shutup if u dont blieve this stuff then y u reading it!!! & eric quit lying u no u dont liv by that bridge >>>>

Again…the bridge in question is only a few feet off the river. You won’t die from the jump. I agree with an earlier comment that if this woman (no name given – strange) had a baby (full-term) – then the parents must have known about it. This urban myth has very little if any verifiable data – so it is very difficult to research. No date, no name. You do have a bridge. Brianna, I believe in ghosts. I have actually experienced ghost and EVPs myself. My thought for you is to go back to school – learn how to write and speak – and stop attacking everyone verbally that takes a different view from yourself. People, find a new bridge…this story is lame.

For everyone, Cry baby bridge is real. Ive lived in Glen Burnie for a long time and when I was in high school everyone went to the haunted spots. Theres so many of them half arnt even listed on this web site. There is a satanic church that is painted completely black. These arnt rumors all u have to do is go there and see for your self. Its that simple.

Mandy says:

September 30, 2006, 10:46 pm

Its all a bunch of BS there is so many stupid Cry baby bridges in Maryland its not funny I live on the Eastern Shore and they say there is one down here and yes i went to it and nothing they say there in one in Carroll County and westminster as well i mean come on and give me a break there really can not be this many bridges to one story

Well actually plenty of girls have hidden their pregnancies to full term and delivered w/o anyone knowing and then dumping their babies. They usually been found but this is why they created the law where you can drop your baby off at a church, police department, fire department w/o being prosecuted or arrested. I know it is hard to conceal a pregnancy being I was pregnant and my belly was HUGE but I dont know maybe they starve theirselves, but girl do get away with it.

livingdedgirrll says:

October 20, 2006, 3:32 pm

I live 1 mile from the bridge and drive across it twice a day, never seen anything but it is creepy. we were there at midnight on Halloween, drunk as monkeys on red wine just standing on the bridge but witnessed nothing. I did, however, get 2 flat tires driving across it one day on my way to work.

Amy Marie says:

October 27, 2006, 2:46 pm

There are many cry baby bridges…but if you notice this Bridge always comes up when you are searching for haunted places in Maryland. I lived near the bridge for a very long time and still do. Now, the girl never jumped, too shallow….she had the baby and her parents dis-owned her, she lied and told them she was giving the baby up…but really bundled the baby up and tossed into the water…feeling so guilty she went back to the bridge later that night and choked her self over the side simply by dangling. They found the woman of course as well as the baby..thats how the story came to be….

I believed it but never that it was haunted, untill 3 years ago in the summer time….its kinda funny how people commenting about flat tires above..because i came along at 2:30am just before the bridge with a flat there so long i didnt care about wasnt that far and it was warm. So I got out put my hazards on and started to walk…..I came to the middle of the bridge and heard the sound of someone struggling for air? stopped in fear..i mean completely almost pissed my pants..i couldnt move..literally, I felt the coldest air surround me and behind me almost like someone whispered in my ear when i turned quickly to look a car was coming and i suddenly was able to move aside….

it happened so fast…but it was so scarey and realistic that it seemed like it was never ending…i definately belive that s**t, without a doubt because i experienced it without even believing it was even haunted..untill that crazy *** night.

Do you ever know things before they happon? Be going about your every day routine, to suddenly Feel like I’ve got to get out of here NOW!!! RUN,RUN,GO! Then tell yourself, stop it! nothing is wrong! second guess yourself. (Spend years thinking you have panic attacks) Only to run full speed from what you keep trying to tell yourself is nothing. Then find out your fear was justified, and thank God you left when you did? Ever have a feeling about someone or yourself, pop into your head, real quick to where you won’t even hear it if you choose not to. Only to find out it happoned or the thought plays out the next day. Do you seem to “Feel” the emotions of total strangers? Dispair, Hurt, Physical & emotional? Just want to tell them why they are upset,cause they are confused, and how it is all going to play out, cause you know it will bring them peace. But you cant cause the men in the white coats will be waiting for you?
The reason for my questions: If your answers are yes. Guess What? Your not nuts! You are what is called “Sensitive”. (A, Sensitive). You unconsciously are affected by small changes around you. Such as, environment, emotions or curcumstances of others. You are Sensitive to the world around you. Not everyone is. This is why some see or feel those who died in dispair and can sort of connect with them and then some will never believe cause they will never see. They just don’t have it.
Anyway, Haunted House!!!
A house was built on Quarterfield rd, about 8 years ago. Beautiful home, santa fe style rancher. When A custom home is built like this the people stay. Not in this house. The house took a year to build,and has had 3 different owners. The owners only live in the house on average 1 year. The house sits empty average 1 year, that in itself is strange when you see this beautiful home. A situation required me to go to this house, knock on the door, give the tennent some good news. I rung the door bell and left! I brought my husband back and wanted to see if he felt the sensation, and he’s not sensitive. Well he did! Know one was home and the airconditioner was off but the curtains in one room would open, then it would move the the next room then stop. the sensation was electric. The hair stood up on your arms. you feel “Her” right away. I feel it is a girl, a young girl who was killed, along time ago. I think or feel she is in the court yard of the house, she wants to go home. Give her parents closure. Such saddness. If you ever get to experiance this house. Be careful. and Respectful of the owners property. Again the house is vacant.
If you have any info about the house or “her” submit a comment, mabe give “her” closure

I went to Governor’s Bridge last night, a.k.a cry baby bridge. It’s a rusted old metal bridge deep in the woods that sits over sewage water. I’ve lived in Annapolis for a long damn time, and have heard at least 30 different stories about the bridge. So Halloween night, me and my friend’s decided to go, and of course nothing eerie happened at all. We stood on the bridge for about an hour and a half, because we had nothing better to do. Perhaps I should debunk some myths here. The reason there are so many accidents near governorâ??s bridge is because of the dark, very narrow, and winding construction of the roads. The bridge itself is only wide enough for one car to go over. So I attribute the number of accidents to this, and not some ghost car. Yes, you can see cars in the water below the bridge, but that is because the bridge sits over what use to be a junk yard, and still remains a dump for trash. Lastly, the baby story is true. My grandmother remembers this from 1963. A young girl did indeed toss her baby to the water below; at the time the bridge was nothing more than a rickety wooden footbridge. However, my grandmother states that young girls all around the nation would frequently throw their baby’s off bridges because teenage, and out of wedlock pregnancies were socially unacceptable. Abortion was not accessible, and birth control was new, so it wasn’t widely used. Girls would hide their pregnancies, and dispose of the babies before anyone knew something was a miss. So that is why there are tons of â??cry babyâ? bridges across the nation. Point is, there are no ghost cars that cause you to wreck, no lady that walks the bridge, no crying baby being heard, and nothing paranormal at all. Itâ??s all urban legend.

It’s really funny reading everyone’s version of cry-baby bridge..I will admit at first you think it’s bull*** I went there 3 or 4 different times with different friends…I never heard no baby crying…but…there was a black car that had chased a car full of us one time like it was going to hit us off the road…if your going down towards the bridge and that big barn with all the graffiti is on your right..turn around and make a right on the dirt road..that is the scariest frickin road..cause that’s where this happened at…and the bad thing about it is that it disappeared…I know what we saw, and it’s the truth…the 2nd time we went back to actually hear the so called baby and didn’t hear notta, but we did get pulled over by the police because we were being so obvious…So there might not be no baby crying…but there’s something…On that dirt road…and if you got marbles walk it!!!!!!!

My cousin and I were on our way back to her house one night last summer. She lives in Upper Marlboro…and we do know of this one bridge that neighbors and ourselves have called “cry baby bridge”…its a super low bridge that stands above a very shallow stream. This particular road is ALWAYS foggy…esp. at night, the clouds are low and usually the weather has shifted to be a little bit chillier…anyways…this one particular night we’re driving home and we’re just about to reach the bridge when my cousin starts flipping out like she all of the sudden remembered where we were and she wants to turn around and get the hell out of there cause she never drives over the bridge at night. So since she is freaking out, I start getting scared too, and I tell her she’s just got to drive, and we’ll be over it in a matter of seconds….but she had already stopped in the middle of the road…which to me was worse than just sucking it up and driving over it…yes, so we’re STOPPED on this skinny little dark road, about 25 feet away from the bridge, and we both start yelling she says she “cant go…she wont go” I’m yelling “GO! JUST GO! GO!” so finally she floors it and I’m holding onto my seat with all I’ve got and I close my eyes, and we’re over it. We’re both scared out of our minds, but I am stupid and curious; so I look in the side view mirror just to see if I can see any thing…it could have been my imagination but I’m almost possitive I saw something move across the road in the fog…the fact that the fog was reflecting our car’s breaklights didnt make the situation any better…cause I just remember this image of a figure shown in a hazy red light.

I wont drive over that bridge at night, unless I’m with my parents.

I agree with Shadow that the Governor’s Bridge is not very high and it’s still a one-way bridge the last time I went down it – last year. I didn’t particularly care for going over it as it’s metal and you can see thru it. Now maybe there are several Governor’s Bridges throughout MD, which is possible. I don’t see how anyone would be killed jumping off this bridge besides maybe breaking your ankle or something. You know how it goes, until you do a lil background check on the stories that’s the only way you’re going to find out what’s truth or folklore.

I pass over this bridge frequently as a shortcut to get to Chik-fil-a for breakfast in the morning. The bridge is located on Govenor’s Bridge Rd. Halfway between Davisonville MD and Bowie MD. The Patuxent River passes under th bridge, this is the not only the dividing point for the 2 towns listed above, but also for Prince Georges and Anne Arundel County. I want to urge everyone to use extreme caution, this bridge is on a very windey and dangerous Rd. The bridge itself is a one lane bridge so you must stop before passing to make sure that there is no oncoming traffic. Also another word of warning, drunkards commonly use this backroad to avoid police. Be careful!! I don’t drive the road alone at night and and anytime I go over that road I always say a special prayer of protection. The bridge has it’s fair share of legends and stories associated with it but the surrounding swamp and marsh land are equally as creepy and haunted. There used to a be a little area right before the bridge on the PG side where you could park but just recently Jersey Barriers have been placed to block off the entrance. if you would like more info you can contact me at the following genegroom “at” verizon. net You should leave the spaces out and use the @ for “at” i do this so my email won’t be spammed. I do live fairly close to this location.

The story below about the house on Quarterfield Rd….totally true. I know a friend who lived right down the street. We walked down one night and it just seems so creepy and looks if they just picked up and left. Also…I never thought about the little girl but there are a lot of stuffed animals upstairs. Oh and if you get a chance go in the garage in the back yard…it is like a hanger as people call. I found a lot of blue prints and weird stuff. My friend actually has blue prints from Annapolis mall framed. It is just a creepy place!

I’ve been to this bridge quite a few times with my buddies looking for ghosts. So far all I found out there was a quiet place to drink and an owl which scared the **** out of us. You expect to hear something right? so you’re as quiet as you can be when after about 10 minutes we hear an owl screech. Yeah, sobered me right up. Haven’t seen anything there, and we have gone there a lot. spent some time in my late teens looking for haunted places in Maryland. Found one that I actually saw some things that give me goosebumps to this day 6 years later. Definitely not this bridge though.

This is the bridge that rund between Davidsonville and Bowie. Off of 424 (Davidsonville road), headed towards Crofton, you would make a left onto Governors’ Bridge Road and follow it straight back. Once you cross the bridge, if you keep going, you’ll end up by the Saturn Dealership and Bowie Baysox Stadium parking in Bowie near 301.

I have lived here all my life and this story is true along with the bridge is the story of hell house the old girls college in ellicott city which is no longer there. The story of Black Agie is also true but she was not evil when she was alive she was actually a nurse the eyes glow yes because of the paint that was put on the statue. I believe in this stuff and my father grew up here and has seen plenty. There us another brige but the correct cry baby bridge is in howard county

I also forgot the satanic church is true because i know someone who has expierienced the issue with the church now it is a regular church a lot of the haunted areas have been built around which cuts the historic out of it and isnt worth looking into.

Hey I somehow ended up on the Maryland section on accident and then saw that y’all have a “Cry Baby Bridge ” too. There is one back in Rock Hill SC, (the town next to my hometown), and the story goes that wayyy back in the day ( before cars were owned by everyone , when they were owned by the wealthy only pretty much). A young mother was leaving a friends house where she had just had dinner, and she gets tired carrying the baby so she stops on the bridge to take a lil breather. She lays the baby on the rail, for a second and the baby fell off the railing. When you go to the site of the bridge you can hear the baby crying and, some pretty weird stuff happens there. My father, When he was about 16-17, and his friends went there one night, (his friend had just gotten a brand new car, seriously the day before), so anyways they were on the bridge laughing about the ghost bc they had never seen it. When they decided to leave, still laughing it up, they started the car and hit the gas, and the car wouldnt budge, they said that it felt like someone was holding the car in place. When they got out of the car to check it out, there were what looked like fingernail marks all down the trunk. Needless to say they never made fun of the woman from Cry Baby Bridge again! If y’all are ever in the area check it out! Def. Creepy!

its real funny that this is almost the same story as the Kingsville bridge which is right around the corner from the Jericho Covered bridge in harford county. Honestly I belive in some of this haunted stuff and ghost but; I dont see how every bridge could have had a teenage mother drop their child over the edge and then kill herself. Only difference in he bridges is that the mother at Kingsville bridge was kicked out by her parents and hung herself after killing the baby not jumping to her death.

elizabeth yerby says:

October 8, 2007, 2:41 pm

the real story is the girl hung herself from the bridge after tossing the baby. how – don’t know and nobody ever will. the bridge isn’t bad at all, it’s all the dead walking the road that will get you.

another truly haunted place is beverly beach in mayo. the kalbs, who owned it, were my step fathers parents. real strange people. there were two buildings along the water front that housed rides from the abandoned amusement park, nothing came out the same as it went in. there was also a house just down from the two buildings right on the water. the grandparents lived there for a long time, a summer place for them, i remember being there and seeing people walking the grounds and in the house day and night. one early morning the house went up in flames for no apparent reason. i have not been back since.

Ok this one hits close to home. I live in edge water and my boyfriend, little sister her bf and I were driving down this road one night when we were bored. My bf wanted to scare me and my little sister so when we got on the bridge he turned off the car ( I wouldnt advise anyone else doing this since there is a sharp turn close to the end of the bridge, and you wouldnt want to get hit) well when he turned off the car and rolled down the windows it was pitch black and really quiet.. I mean too quiet for being by the river… I started groping in my purse for my cell phone so that I could shine some light into the car. ( now im a big skeptic when it comes to ghosts, but something about the silence was really scaring me, that and it was so damn dark) SO i couldnt find my cell but i found my camera…so i took a pic of my boyfriend, when it popped up on the screen it was fine, I took a pic of the back seat with my sister and her bf, again the picture popped up a second later and was fine.. than i took a pic of the darkness out the window… my tiny little flash lit up the whole river side.. I didnt see nething, but the pic on my camera wasnt popping up… which was weird cuz again there were fresh batteries and its a new cam… so again i took a pic out the window, this time the pic took 3 seconds instead of the usual 1 and the picture looked like there was a face peering half way into the window… it was really blurred and kinda looked like smoke… the face stayed on the screen for about 4 seconds while everyone in the car who squeezed around the cam screamed… and than my batt light flashed and the cam went dead… well after that we hightailed it out of there… when I got home I put fresh batts in the cam again and started it.. all my pics of that night were on the memory card, except for the four I took in the car… no lie!……. oh if anyone knows of any good places to go could they email them to me with directions.. I live in edgewater… tahnks

Grew up in Bowie and lived in Crofton ever since. I’ve been over this bridge more times than I can count. I’ve been at several roadside parties as well late at night and never seen anything. To be honest I never knew it was supposed to be haunted. I’ve been laughing at all this. I know someone was murdered on the road in his car, shot by some wannabe Bowie gangster in the early 90s.

isabelle says:

October 14, 2007, 4:18 pm

Yeah, I definitely saw the lady. She jumped off the bridge ’cause Black Aggie and Goat Man were chasing her!! They all live in Glenn Dale Hospital now. THATS where you’ll find them.

Britney says:

Where is this? My sister and I want to go here. I am from Anne Arundel County and have heard of seven hills and the creepy college. And they haunted hospital, glen dale i believe? But I would really like to visit this bridge and see for myself. Please give me the diections coming from 95 South or 295 to 495 capital beltway if that highway is necessary.

Cry Baby Bridge in Davidsonville Md crosses over the Patuxent River. As a teen we partied there all the time since I grew up just a few miles from it. We have seen and heard many unusual things there. Once the car we were in just shut off and would not restart for quite some time. Then it just started right up, but not until after a break in the erie fog came. It is true that the KKK used to meet there. As well as some Satanic group. But the spot has always been a good fishing spot. Not many go at night though, and those who have have reported some wild things. I know that at one time while i was in highschool, they captured a bob cat in the area and attributed the crying sounds to it as their cry does in fact sound like a baby. I know in reality the story about the girl throwing her baby over happened. You can research it in the public records for the area. I know also that we freaked out my cousin while she was visiting, we had the driver stop the car in the middle of the bridge and act like it wouldnt start, while it was dark my husband >then boy friendheaded into PG county

concerning the bridge. I’ve been there 5 times now and haven’t seen anything. I go with new people every time. I usually show up there around 10pm to 12am. I haven’t seen a thing. For those of you who have, I was wondering if you could tell me the best time to go and actually see the girl. On the other hand, I have seen the car. It reminded me of an old black camaro. It chased us across the bridge before it disappeared. But other then that, nothing has happened. There’s just a bunch of graffiti on everything. I would appreciate some pointers on when to go and what exactly to look for.

Once, when I was 12, my mom gave me a capgun and I shot it at a bird and the bird died. Creepy huh? Oh yeah, a bridge. I killed some babies and jumped off of it. I did a cannonball. Then I hung myself, but I didn’t die, cuz I hung myself by the torso. If you drive over the bridge between 2:30am and 3:17am, I will jump out and offer you weed….err…my ghost will. I used to be a pregnant teenager, but while I was driving with my family over the bridge, I threw up pea soup on my mom and she spun out (cuz there was a storm) and she crashed the car. We all died, cept for my baby that burst out of my ****** 3 secs before the crash. My baby’s name is Kyle and his favorite color was blue, because he turned blue in the freezing water.

This is BS. I was on this bridge last night. How the hell would you expect police to search a metal bridge for evidence someone had been there. See if she left an aura?

I saw some weird stuff, but it all turned out to be deer when I pointed the flashlight, the weird car turned out to be some guys driving around smoking weed, and all the moving objects were shadows from a flashlight as I moved it.

January 13, 2008, 3:24 pm

i’ve been over this bridge a lot. i have heard the story about the teenage girl dropping her baby in the water and jumping in after. i’ve seen the girl a few times. and if you stop on the bridge and turn your car off, sometimes it wont start again.

I live in crofton, md. this past summer my friend and i were driving around on some back roads off of patuxent road. (if you’re on 424 and and go straight across route 3. go straight for a while, when you get to the stop sign, most people turn right. go left or straight) at the end of one of those roads, i dont remember which one, there was a church. i dont remember the name, or ever hearing anything about it. the roads themselves were terrifying, just driving with the windows down freaked us out. it was the middle of summer but it felt like it was 40 degrees out. anyways, we parked in the church parking lot thinking we could catch our breath. bad idea. the church was pitch black. we got an weird, freaked out feeling and all the sudden a red glow turned on inside the church and we saw a shadow pass by a window. there were no other cars in the parking lot.

so we turned around and went back to where we started and went down the other not so popular road. call us whimps but it was terrifying. we couldnt even make it all the way down. the pavement stopped and it was gravel. the trees just seemed to encompass you on the road like there was no way out. when we’re feeling brave we’re going back, we want to see if something for real actually happens.

Dj says:

February 2, 2008, 8:47 pm

The true haunting of Governor’s Bridge is the local lore of it’s own story. The idea of something haunting this area is the true nature of it’s own tale. Actual events of this young lady who did away with her baby, then herself certainley seems to be the fuel of the story. Then you add in all the years of spinning story around story. With someone adding in a wee bit here, and a lil bit there, you will end up with a believable story that gathers as it goes. I am a 35 year old man and I personaly have spent many, many nights there fishing. The scariest thing I have yet to see during those times was some of the Carp I pulled from the river itself. I have arrived when it was still lite outside, built fires and stayed till it was once again lite outside. Not a single time have I witnessed something strange or paranromal even. I am in no way, shape, or form a skeptic. I do my own investigations and I live for the standing hairs and wavy chills that pass thru my body when I am in the presence of the paranormal. But I do not believe there is anything “haunting” about this bridge or it’s area. As long as there are people to continue the story, it will stay around and maybe even grow some more. Maybe someday someone will allow an investigation at the farm house near by. I know for a fact that this paticular place is haunted. Have seen it with my own two eyes. It’s an old farm house, still lived in, in the Davidsonville. Still has the slave quarters on the property.

Sara says:

February 20, 2008, 5:07 pm

This is NOT true, Governors Bridge is NOT haunted. Ive been over and on the bridge a MILLION times. Ive seen nothing, my friends have seen nothing. I mean a lot of teenagers go there at midnight like it says to do and nothing EVER happens. This is NOT the real Cry Baby bridge.

Kay says:

February 24, 2008, 10:59 am

I used to work right off of Governor’s Bridge Road, and used it to get to D.C. every day (and frequently in the evening) – crossing the bridge – and never saw anything there. My boyfriend at the time lived locally, and I know that he and friends had driven to the bridge (as had others they knew) “ghost hunting” with absolutely no success. I would not recommend a long trip there to be dissapointed. It is a little creepy/off the beaten track, and is mainly used by locals and fisherman. So seeing someone on the side of the bridge or in the water is very commonplace and not at all spooky unless you are determined to make it so with your imagination! Sorry!

Emily says:

March 8, 2008, 3:37 pm

For all the people who say this place is not haunted and went there and nothing happened , let me ask you. How many times have you went here? People just guess that if they go to a place ONE time and nothing paranormal happen’s then its not haunted. Do some research on investigating before you come on here and say a place is not haunted.

I’ve read reports of the Goatman being on this bridge throwing rocks at those who drive by. One night my friends went there and when they took pictures, at least 40 orbs showed up in the pictures. There’s no doubt that this bridge is haunted

I lived in Davisdonville for about 8 years, which is next to the Bridge. I have camped there many many times, canoed down the river drop point being the bridge in the middle of the night with no flash lights, and Hiked up and down the river at ALL HOURS without a flash light.
Just keeping the spirits alive and fun.
Many may think it’s mean but, My associates and I have never Physically harmed anyone. Let me just tell you Haunting a place makes for the best camp fire stories

I worked on gov bridge road for over 7 years and i have crossed that bridge probably hundreds of times. probably about 95% of those times in daylight…and i have never seen or felt anything out of the ordinary. Granted, rarely crossed it at night and never stopped ON the bridge. im curious to go check it out late tonight for ***** and giggles though!

on a side note….

i know exactly what roads you are talking about! i used to frequently drive down patuxent road as a teenager…
i have ALWAYS thought those 2 roads were creepy. even in broad daylight. i also am familiar with that church that is mentioned…i have used that parking lot a couple of times to turn around (never stopped)…while the roads are creepy, i have personally never experienced anything i would classify as paranormal.

but knowing im not the only person that those roads creep out is pretty cool :)

Thus, she set the trend for young mothers all over Baltimore area to dump their babies after birth. Except now, that nasty city has garbage filled alleys, festering dumpsters, and rats the size of humans to carry these babies away. It’s a sick, sick world we live in. These women deserve the death penalty……..why do they only get 5-10 yrs? It’s unjust!

JC says:

June 11, 2008, 3:16 pm

OK, so the girl was afraid her parents found out she was pregnant, so she just kept her huge belly hidden for 9 months ? And the truck driver couldn’t prove the girl was on that bridge that night ? And the police couldn’t find any evidences of the girl’s presence either ? WOW, THAT’S SOOO SCARY… Driver = drunk. Police = Stupid. Girl = fake.

I went the other night with a friend of mine, and We tried a few of the things that are found in all the cry baby bridge stories to see if we could stir something up. We got our map quest directions for a house that was for sale on Gov. Bridge Road, and off we set. From Baltimore County down to AA county. We got onto Gov Bridge Rd and kept going till we came upon the bridge. The one lane blue toned metal bridge was eerie looking, as we pulled up, but of course thats not enough. With everything you read you expect it to be eerie, hope it is at least. We park the car after we drive across the bridge on a dirt patch so if any cars were to come we wouldnt get hit, and we got out and walked up onto the bridge. It was about 2am when we arrived, and it was pitch black. The height of the bridge was not anything to be amazed by, so I would assume the girl hung herself, and the baby was thrown over. But anyway; we turned out the 1 flashlight we had, and yelled, “crybaby crybaby” as loud as we could. But didnt hear nor see anything. we walked back and forth across the bridge.. looking out over it, but nothing really that couldnt be explained. just shadows that upon a closer examine with the light were objects along the water and rocks in the water. We got in the car and turned the lights on, shining on the bridge, then walked back up to the bridge. and we could see what looked like a white rope or thick string hanging from the bridge, but when we walked up to it, there was nothing there. We figured maybe it was a spider web, but it looked a lot thicker, like a shoe string type thickness. We looked at each other, and brushed it off as possible just the light hitting something. we walked back to the car, and pulled onto the bridge itself, rolled the windows down, turned out the lights, and the car off. Sat for a few minutes. We didnt bring a camera because I had just gotten off work, and was pretty unprepared. But either way, nothing happened from that point, and we left to head to NotchCliff Road another so-called ghaunted road closer to home in Baltimore County.

I’m going back tonite, to Gov Bridge Road, with a few friends, a camera and some better equipment, I will post on what happens when I return.

I grew up near the bridge and the story is completely an urban legend. There is a wildlife refuge right before you get to the bridge that has various animals, including a tiger. What noises that are heard are probably from these animals. The so-called satanic church is down Conway Road in Odenton, which is not near the bridge.

October 10, 2008, 5:13 pm

Several years ago my friends and I would go there frequently. We never heard a baby cry, but we did hear lots of wierd noises coming from the woods. One night we walked down and saw hundreds of glow worms (the only way to describe them) and one of the guys took off running in the woods and we could hear him yelling. After about 15 minutes he finally came back all scratched up and talking incoherently. He never said what he saw or how he got so deeply scratched, but, you can bet he never went back with us again.

October 24, 2008, 7:27 pm

I have lived in Annapolis my whole life and have gone over this bridge millions of times…first off, the bridge is only like 10 feet from the water, so if someone jumped off they would definitely NOT die, probably not even break a leg. I have gotten out at the bridge and there is a car upside down in the water right under the bridge. Probably just an old piece of junk. But it is creepy down there…

Shannon says:

October 28, 2008, 11:07 am

I’ve heard of this place and it’s tale, so Friday night (Oct 24th) a few friends and I decided to go check it out. It was late about 12:30 and we parked and got out. We walked across the bridge and didn’t see or hear anything out of the ordinary. It was definately an eerie feeling but anywhere you go at night in the woods is going to be eerie. As we were crossing back over the bridge my girlfriend and I saw a white light/flash in the woods to the right of the bridge if you were coming from the AACO side. I google mapped the area and found no road close enough to have seen car headlights. Not sure what it was but in previous posts some have seen this light/flash as well. Gonna check it out again soon!

My friends and I used to go out to the bridge quite a bit (we lived in Annapolis) and had heard a different reason for the haunting. We had heard that kids had been playing chicken (it was a one way bridge)and had an accident, killling all involved. If you looked to either side of the bridge you could still see (i don’t know if they have removed them) wrecked cars. We also heard that there was a satanic cult that worshiped just past the bridge on the PG county side. The area certainly had a “bad” feeling to it.

Umm.. I was there 2nite but I never see anything. usually my friends and i shut off all the lights and drive slowly through & nothing. But right now there is a Barbie Doll head hanging from the top. Thats about it.

one of my best friends said that she went down that road after a party one night with a friend of hers. they had the radio on full blast and when they got to that area of the road the radio turned off and they heard a baby crying. she said it was so loud it sounded like it was in the back seat. i think the story of the prego teen is the real story but im really not sure.

Patrick Foley says:

The stories are quite interesting. Is there a place I could give a story?

Governors Bridge is in Davidsonville, MD, Governors Bridge Rd. it is a one lane bridge so there is no way a trucker flew off it the road is way to small for a semi. But i have been there a bunch of times and it is pretty scary standing on the bridge at night.

tommy says:

April 11, 2009, 8:25 pm

i have been on this bridge millions of times. i live ten mintues from it. i have stood on it at twelve midnight on a full moon and have never heard the baby or anything. its all b.s. trust me.

To each his or her own when it comes to the so called paranormal. I have been to the bridge several times, and the Natural Resources park downstream; yesterday as a matter of fact. I find, personally, that I am not interested in events that need midnight, a full moon, mist, rain, or isolation; Iâ??ve grown weary and leery of events with all the â??bangs and whistlesâ?. I like my events under a bright sun, subtle, very subtle, and sometimes barely perceivable as odd until much later. For example, if I had encountered a young girl yesterday down by the canoe launch on the Patuxent; perfectly normal, except perhaps her clothes would seem â??datedâ? 1950â??s. She would ask me, oddly for a stranger, if I had any children. Maybe the air would seem cooler; perhaps it would be the breeze across the brown flowing water, nothing more. Perhaps she would be attractive yet something about her would make me, a grown man, more afraid than attracted to her. She would walk away muttering something I couldnâ??t exactly make out. Only later would I realize that she had said â??President Eisenhower.â?
I would walk back toward the parking area, looking for her.
I would never see her again: broad perfect daylight; a slippage in time and reality; that would be my taste in a haunting. Was she a ghost or a mentally disturbed teenager?
Itâ??s the subtle little doubts that make paranormal events exiting to me. I don’t have to chase ghosts; they find me.

I went to Governer’s Bridge or Crybaby bridge, whatever you want to call it, tonight April 27, 2009 by myself in my ’85 Corvette. The engine in my car is loud enough to wake the dead so I figured it might stir up any ghosts if the legend(s) of this supposedly haunted bridge are true to any degree.

Unfortnately ladies and gentleman I am afraid to report that the bridge being haunted or frequented by paranormal beings and/or activities is a lie. I don’t scare easily and I saw nothing out of the ordinary for a one lane bridge deep in a wooded area. I also saw nothing to be afraid of or to give anyone an eerie feeling. Quite the reverse actually, there is a lot of resturaunts and a big Ourisman Honda car dealership on the left on the way to the bridge off Route 301 South. The bridge is located at Governer Bridge Rd and Route 301 South near Bowie, MD. For the curious people I am going back on Monday morning and I’ll take some pictures of the bridge and entire wooded area sorrounding the bridge including the underside of the bridge for anyone who is curious to see this “haunted” bridge during the day. Just check the link I gave for my website. Hopefully the weather will cooperate with me and it’ll be a dry hot day like it was on Sunday. Wish me luck.

Johnny Rockets says:

April 28, 2009, 6:44 am

As I mentioned in my post, I believe, I take the John Keel (Mothman Prophesies) approach to psychic phenomenon. So called encounters with the unknown realm do not last in one area forever, and obviously the Governorâ??s bridge did not collapse like the Silver Bridge over the Ohio, though there was a fatal accident in the relatively recent past. I also frequent the area often and the most dangerous entities I have encountered are tics. The most bothersome have been living humans who believe that their dog is too noble for a leash. I have no idea what people were encountering there in the past. Do I believe that itâ??s gone now? Yes, I think it is possible. Although I have learned that you cannot be specific about time when you are dealing with beings that ignore it.

Deano says:

April 28, 2009, 7:54 am

I’ve never been to this bridge before but want to visit it soon. Trust me….if I visit ANY paranormal site, nothing EVER happens. Maybe it’s me or my karma. And I want to believe. Been to Gettysburg so many times to so many “haunted” areas only to see nothing.


Johnny Rockets says:

April 28, 2009, 8:37 am

I would suggest John Keelâ??s book, or if you donâ??t have the interest, whatever its merits or lack thereof, the movie The Mothman Prophesies can give you a rough feeling for certain things. We may need to finally admit that we are dealing with phenomena that when it occurs may depend of location, time, and the individual person. I have come after many years of study and thought, to believe that we may have no need to build spacecraft to find aliens, or wait for a visit. Entities might exist or even physical beings, that have their origin on our own Earth, but do not now, nor have they ever, inhabited our â??realityâ?. Hidden; they are masters of illusion and camouflage, to a degree that even our 21st Century technology avails us not. I know it feels like finger nails on chalkboard to say that psychic phenomena may not be â??democraticâ? in the selection of who gets to experience it, but that may well be the case. Also, the motives of these entities might be so far removed from what the human mind calls reason, that any attempt at understanding is futile.

FreeTime Tards says:

May 2, 2009, 2:48 pm

Okay, me & my friends call ourselves “The FreeTime Tards.” We do stupid stuff all the time and film it and blah blah blah. We’ve started to do ghost stuff as part of our videos now. This is one of the many places we decided to test out first. We went to this bridge 4 times (once including Halloween) and we haven’t seen anything. We stood up there for nearly a half hour filming each time and nothing was seen. We yelled “I Killed Your Baby,” like some people have said to do to get her to appear, and nothing was spotted. The only thing we felt was freezing cold temperatures and that’s because we were over water. We declared the stories of this bridge fake. No car was spotted either that was supposed to disappear as it seemed to hit you head on. However, we do agree that this can be a really creepy and eerie place at nightfall with fog and silence surrounding you.

Johnny Rockets says:

May 4, 2009, 6:50 am

Ah, the innocence and energy of youth! I fear the phenomenon may not operate by scientific method in this universe, nor is it as predictable as the crossing of Venus. If it were, we would all be summoning spirits to go scare the hell out of those who malign us and there would be a M.C.U. (Magical Crimes Unit) in every major police force in the country. The trigger for these events may well lie in the sub-conscious, whose capabilities far and beyond the egoâ??s might be better suited at handling them.

skott says:

May 26, 2009, 7:18 pm

To be honest I’ve been on this bridge and the road itself many times and it is never the same twice and it never feels the same and it is also an astral battleground which is why you can see many many strange things along the entire road like abut a month before yesterday I was on it and one of the fences was a nice looking white picket fence and i went on the road yesterday and it was a brown picket fence that would go up and down in height and no this was not a trick of the eye i drove it twice last night and then a little farther down the road it had a single segment of the white picket fence that I had seen the month before but on the other side of the road as well as I have seen strange things on the road which I refuse to go into as well as the fact that for some reason (and yes this will sound very strange) but the curves in the road move and change every time you drive it my personal advise is try to avoid that road unless your looking for trouble if you want more info on haunted places in the Annapolis Bowie area send me a message on myspace or something and id love to tell you some very very strange ones

Johnny Rockets says:

May 27, 2009, 6:26 am

Take a look at an ADC map. Look at who is just a half mile upstream of the bridge: U.S. Air Force Transmitter Stationâ?¦HELLO! As far I am concerned, all bets are off now. I know, I know, from my personal experience as a child growing up on a farm next to Harry Diamond U.S. Army labs on Cherry Hill Road near Adelphi MD, itâ??s a chicken or egg thingâ?¦does the military cause these events or, do they build facilities close to zones with temporal anomalies? Bottom line is this: who knows what Air Force signals can do to some minds? Make you see the road curve change? Oh, yeah!

ash says:

August 11, 2009, 3:47 pm

i live in piney orchard where the road is and it is all true.. we call it the cry baby bridge w.e te name is it is the is definatly haunted weve seen the same woman and there is a church right before you reach it..i wish people would shutup if they didnt know wut they were talking about..theres a rumor about the baby that if u stop yur car and turn everythng off ur windows will gfog and u can hear the baby cryng and foot prints appear on your windows, that has never happened but i have definatly seen something out there

Patrick Foley says:

mystic says:

October 7, 2009, 11:43 pm

Crybaby Bridge is on 214, headed toward Upper Marlboro, but still in Davidsonville, farthest side, toward UP MARL. Gov Bridge has more than one story, the white lady, the car crash, the abandoned gal waitin for her boyfriend to come back with gas. Grew up there, and ya hear it all. Wouldnt catch ME out there alone, too friggin creepy for this gal. Yea, that bridge was major low to the water, one lane. Sandy

I agree Jexxi, its creepy, but I never got the haunted sense. Other than by people throwin trash and cigarette butts, partiers. Mystic

December 16, 2009, 2:26 pm

Lived here my whole life. This was one of the first scary stories I heard of when I was like 6.Never been there and dont know anyone personally who has and has heard anything. Interesting though to hear stories. Then came Goatmans Bridge whic is located on Gardner Road between Accokeek, MD and Waldorf, MD. It used to be a one lane bridge, where you had to watch for oncoming traffic and see if it was safe to drive over. Now it is two lanes. I have not been out there at night and I have not seen anything during the day. Anyone got any info on this?

AjaX says:

December 27, 2009, 12:16 pm

I went to Meade High School so it was close by..Road is creepy and never saw anything or heard anything. Couldn’t find the devil/satanic church. However isn’t it true some kids from Meade wrecked on that road and supposedly you can see watches imprinted on a tree, etc.

Julia Catlett says:

January 30, 2010, 12:55 pm

I was born and raised here in Maryland and have grown up knowing that cry baby bridge is in Ellicott City, Howard County. Atleast that is where I was always told and shown it was.

Chris says:

February 15, 2010, 10:25 pm

I actually live a few miles from this bridge. If you check through the capital you’ll see that throughout the years that quite a number of deaths have happened in and around the area. If people are interested, I would hold a trip to the bridge and show you the area in and around it.

lee says:

April 8, 2010, 7:00 pm

I live close to the bridge and i go down that road alot at dark and if seend and hurd alot of stuff when i go over this bridge its creepy especaly at night i have seen stuff on the enternet also about a car that went off the bridge and now u can hear crys and screams also u can see cars hangin off the bridge and they say if your lucky ul see a old blck car behind u and gets close so it looks like its goin to ramm u so wach out!!!!

Jacki says:

May 5, 2010, 8:22 pm

Cathy–that’s not the same bridge, although I’ve heard stories about one of the bridges near Piney Orchard (down Conway Rd.)

Cajj says:

May 22, 2010, 4:49 pm

OmG, that is so wierd. We have a very haunted area in my home town of Bowling Green Ky, at a place called Middle Bridge Road, very well known. People have also seen a girl, soaking wet and crying. Now that is wierd. Okay, what is it with old bridges being haunted? The story is she was attacked and murdered. I’ve also heard she just drowned. Who knows what really happened, but the wierdest thing is what the other poster described. One woman’s exhusband saw the ghost late at night walking the road in a terrible storm, soaking wet, and crying. He didn’t stop (how terrible!), because he knew it was the ghost and he was freaked out by her appearance. Honestly, I don’t truly believe in ghosts, I think they are demonic spirits just trying to fool people into thinking they are these images of ghosts of people. The similarities between the two tales are strange, that kind of validates my theory on what the true nature of these types of things are.

Cajj says:

May 22, 2010, 5:15 pm

Oh, and additionally, it’s the same type of thing, people will go down there, or used to, because now there’s a no trespassing sign. Anyway, a lot of times, people’s cars have stalled, wouldn’t start up. They’ve seen an glowing image of a girl come down the hill down towards the bridge. Also, there is a small, old cemetary nearby. Just seems kind of strange, the similarities. Guess these kind of spirits like water, old cemetaries, and old bridges. Middle Bridge Road goes over Drakes Creek here. There are lots of stories and sightings here. IT’s mentioned in a couple books as well.

i use to live near mayo. me and a friend of i mine had gone to the walmart near the bridge. she had not told me of the story of that bridge. on the way to the walmart i had thought i saw something strange on the bridge but we had been drivin to fast, so on r way back we had been talkin and my friend had slammed on her breaks. her face had gone white n i had asked her wat was wrong. she had pointed to the rd n there was a wet girlstandin in the rd. later when we had got home i asked her what we seen n thats when she told me of “cry baby bridge”. i’ve heard many stories but never belived them till that night. from that point on i will never go near that bridge!!!!!!

heather says:

June 11, 2010, 3:09 am

well its a true story… me and my bf in 2003 we went over the bridge and well he had a 2002 satern coope and it just started making noises like a clanky noise. and it got all foggy out and we were there for hours that night, i heard noises while sitting in the car while he checks his car out

Matt says:

July 28, 2010, 3:21 pm

I have been there, numerous times with several people. At no point did I experience anything supernatural, but two out of 10 times a sudden cold fog rolls in around the bridge and makes it nearly impossible to see.

Christian says:

August 2, 2010, 4:43 pm

I heard that a man was returning from war or something. He told his wife and she was so excited that she took her baby and walked down the road to meet up with him. The man was driving fast and couldn’t really see. He hit his wife and the baby fell into the river… Its a really sad story. I heard this in a book about Maryland. I dont know if it is true or not.

Leigh says:

August 10, 2010, 8:48 pm

I heard that the story was a young couple had a baby and the girl couldn’t face her parents. The couple decided that they would run away. Going over the bridge, the tire on the truck popped. While the man was fixing the tire, the women got out of the car and put the baby (in a car seat) on the bridge. The water was really high and a wave swept over the bridge and took the baby with it. The girl, panicked, tried to grab the baby and she got her foot stuck and fell off and drowned. The man panicked and drove off leaving his tire iron there. He was never seen again.
The story is that if you go to the bridge and park your car there and turn it off you can see the women running down the bank looking for her baby. you can also hear the cry of the baby that died. Another thing is that if you taunt the spirits, the man will kill you with his tire iron.

I saw this zombie ghost type shadow figure thing and he walked off the band camp with my trumpet and I chased after that creature try to get my instrument back however he disappeared along with my trumpet. Now, I am filing a law suit on the band camp for not telling us of creature stealing trumpets for no reason.

kathy c says:

October 14, 2010, 7:08 pm

wow they are two different bridges two different stories I’m almost 40 years old and we use to go to cry baby bridge wich was located on lottesferd rd now it has been turned into a two lane bridge but yes it was a one lane road and i think and believe it was very haunted .my friends and I would go up every weekend and party on that road very quiet but you could always hear a baby crying and sometimes you would see the woman in white and the fog was always thick (thats why we were there ) but sorry to tell everyone it is now gone

Skip Stover says:

I have lived right off Gov. Bridge Road my entire life. I can get to the bridge thru the woods behind my house. My brother, many friends and i have gone four wheeling in those woods and over that bridge a million times, at all different hours. We have never seen or heard anything. We all heard the stories growing up. We have all called it “Cry Baby Bridge” but only bc growing up thats what every one called it. But again, NEVER actually seen or heard anything. And trust me we’ve looked and listened!!!!

My husband and I drove up to the “Crybaby Bridge” on govn. Bridge rd. I am not gonna lie, it was creepy as hell and smelled horrible. And yes I know the stories. I really could have
Lived without is realizing we parked over a shredded deer carcus -.-‘which was very odd because on our first trip across the bridge we didn’t see it. Then you get all the stupid drunk fucktards that are annoying as all he’ll, following you around and being nosey and watching you like a lost child. Anyway, we didnt really get to see much due to those ” oh so cool” drunk *****. My hubby and I plan to go back on another night and check it out again.’we
Will walk around the bridge and scope underneath it. That is if we can get passed that rotting smell.

yea, um crybaby bridge was not actually from a teenage mother blah blah. its the bridge that the kkk used to throw black babies off of, they also used to have meetings in the huge train tunnel. Ive been over the bridge and the tunnel. I found a noose and i went halfway through the tunnel just felt like it was never going to end. it was cold and at points we saw our breath. idkk, see for yourself.

Nicole says:

June 29, 2011, 11:25 pm

I have driven over this bridge many times and quite often at night it is a one way bridge and when the river rises is often flooded but never have I driven across it at night and seen a women standing on the bridge or heard a crying baby. My ex husbands grandparents along with several friends of ours live off this road. While it makes for a good ghost story its not true.

Sue Schmitt says:

July 10, 2011, 11:21 pm

Sounds like another woman in white type of story. They’re all over the place. They generally occur when a mother does away with her children for whatever reason then in terrible gilt and grief they do away with themselves. I’m a born and raised Marylander. I heard this story off and on throughout the years and one night a couple of friends and I got together to see if we would experience anything. Nothing happened to us out there that night but it was creepy. I think part of the creepy feelings at these sites comes from expectation of something happening not necessarily from something paranormal. I’ve long been a student of the paranormal. I term myself as a skeptical believer. I’ve experienced too many things personally to discount it but on the other hand, I really need something convincing to happen to me personally before I’ll agree a place is haunted. Too much stuff can be faked any more.

Cody says:

August 17, 2011, 2:33 am

So me and my friends went there about 30 minutes ago. On the way home we started feeling watched and one of my friends freaked out, and started getting sick. We stopped at a BP gas station and looked on my roof, there were hand prints and a spot were something looked dragged, along with scratches that weren’t there before.

Chazz says:

October 14, 2011, 6:30 pm

I heard there was this girl who had a baby and put it under the bridge and left. The baby was possessed and is half boy half goat and you can still hear the baby crying at night.

Miracle says:

December 8, 2011, 5:22 pm

The story is very true ! the girl stabbed herself before falling off. Many things happen on that bridge. A old civil war guy drinking on the side of the brindge. seeing the girl jump off , throwing the baby over, standing in the middle of the lanes or in the middle of the river standing. Globs of light in the woods.

Ernie says:

February 6, 2012, 8:40 am

This bridge is the one they call “Crybaby Bridge” it is in Odenton, right past Piney Orchard, it’s a long, dark winding road (which I love to drive in the day and at night). Never seen anything but then again that doesn’t mean that it’s not without spirits…

Well, the spooky lady must have gotten beyond her anguish. I live in the immediate area, have been there for 14 years, cross the bridge all of the time, and I have yet to encounter the chick. If she knows what’s good for her, she’ll stay gone.

June 19, 2013, 4:07 pm

I spent alot of time here as a young adult and many unexplainable things occured. One time it looked as though a car had drivin through the barrier blocking the entrance onto the bridge during construction. We all ran scared and when we looked back a woman dressed in white in the middle of the bridge. Didn’t stay to investigate we were petrified but came back the next day and confirmed that no car could have been on the bridge. Def haunted!

Sierra says:

A. S. says:

September 4, 2013, 9:40 pm

I live in the neighborhood next to the bridge. To be honest, I never thought the bridge could be haunted until it got closed down and I walked down there one day. Since I never really walked on the bridge before, I took my time examining and something immediately caught my eye. I looked up near one side of the bridge, and there seemed to be some sort of rope that was cut off and hanging from there. I am NOT joking. I’ll send a URL of a pic if I get one.

November 28, 2013, 1:39 am

I’ve lived under the bridge for five years now. I’m a serial killer by profession. My last victim graciously let me borrow her laptop. Haha. Anyway, never heard any baby cry. Just the cries of my victims. You people are nuts! Cry baby bridge……that’s rich!! Lol. It keeps me busy though, so for that I thank you…….curious teens. I hear a couple approaching now. Hahaha. Back to work. See ya soon.

Tim Lumber says:

I’m one of the better experts on this bridge. Its reffered to as Crybaby bridge. Its a few blocks away from Bowie Baysox stadium. Just follow governors bridge road. Crybaby bridge is very deep in the woods. I usually get out and take photos. I consider this a top 5 haunted location

I don’t know what to tell the skeptics,but this place had something really going on and its creepy,I went there today after a movie at Bowie town center out of curiosity.I took a 4 min video while I was driving over the bridge a few times,I stopped got out and recorded more close-up.I saw and heard nothing while I was recording,but when I pulled over to reveiw my boring footage I noticed something or someone growling at me once I stepped out of the car,note I heard nothing it was dead silent when I got out of the car to record,but art that point in the video there was clearly something growling at me as soon as I stepped foot out of my vehicle,just knowing that something might have been there with me when I was outside the car growling at me scared the living grap out of me,I WILL NOT BE GOING BACK TO THAT PLACE…..I called several people after that and they tried to make sense of it but couldn’t,I kept trying to explain to them that I didn’t hear a thing while I was recording outside of my car but when I played it back you can clearly hear growls,someone tell me how the hell that is possible..Maybe I’m crazy but I know what I heard on my video and I’m pretty dumb sure that place is has some kind of activity going on…Just my take,thanks for letting me tell my story..

My cousin and I live in Baltimore. We tried to find the bridge last night and couldn’t find it. We want to try again but we are trying to find an exact location.

We call it ‘Cry Baby Bridge’. It’s said you can still hear the baby crying.

There is also a cave somewhere close to this bridge that is the home of the legendary “Goatman”.

My cousin was shot dead on Governors Bridge Rd just before the bridge.
