Bellamy Bridge - Marianna, Florida

This is perhaps one of the best-known “haunted” places in Florida. Bellamy Bridge is an old metal bridge dating from 1914, but it is supposedly haunted by Elizabeth Bellamy, who is said to have died nearby nearly 80 years before that. The legend says it was her wedding day, and her dress caught fire – she ran through the house in a panic, setting most of the place alight, and then jumped into the river in an attempt to quash the flames. She survived only a few more days, and died an agonizing death.

That’s the quick version… there’s much, much more information available elsewhere if you want to get into the nitty-gritty of the legend.

Anyway, people swear they see Elizabeth’s ghost – sometimes bright white and on fire – on or near this rusty old bridge.

You can’t drive here – you have to take the Bellamy Bridge Heritage Trail by foot, and its only open during the summer months when the water levels are low enough. Check the trail’s website for maps and parking information.
