Located a short drive from Stowe on the Gold Brook Road, the bridge is known locally as Emily's Bridge, being Vermont's only haunted bridge, by a ghost named Emily. There are stories of Emily. One is that she was to elope with a lover who was meeting her at the bridge, and when he didn't show, she hung herself from the rafters. Another version is that Emily met a man and the couple planned to marry. Emily went to the church but the groom never arrived, Emily took a horse and cart and rode away at a fast pace but as she approached the bridge too fast she failed to turn right and drove onto the rocks below. Strange noises and happenings have apparently taken place on or near to the bridge ever since. A climb down either side of the bridge, either on the right from Stowe and on the left to Stowe, to see the brook running beneath is worthwhile for additional photographs.
