Palmer, IL: Witch’s Bridge
Supposedly in the 1800s, a woman was hung off the side of this bridge for being a witch. Since then, it is said that if you stop on the bridge late at night, you will hear footsteps. Also, it is reported that if you look out your review mirror, you see her hanging. If you stay too long, it might take a minute to restart your car. Also, strange lights flicker over the creek below.
Also, it is said that if you walk across it, you have brought bad luck upon yourself, and a girl was hung out there on that bridge. Supposedly, the man who killed his family in Stone Cabin hung himself on the bridge.
According to Haunting the Prairie by Michael Kleen: Mentions a girl or a witch was hung there. Also, about the mysterious lights below the bridge.
Per Dangerous Roads: This truss bridge over Bear Creek is 31.69m (104ft) long. The road over the bridge is paved. It’s called E 990 North Road. Located not too far from Anderson Cemetery, this bridge, which is said to be haunted, was built in 1916. Supposedly in the 1800s, a woman was hung for being a witch. With this information, as spotted by a commenter, Mike, it is impossible to hang a witch from the bridge in the 1800s with the bridge being built in 1916. With this knowledge, could the witch be hung by a tree where the bridge was built and was torn down, or is the tree still there but near the bridge?
