Gadsden Times ‘Haunted’ bridge may have new home in Attalla

"The former Pleasant Hill Road Bridge, believed to be the oldest bridge in the county, may find a new home in Attalla — if the Etowah County Historical Society can find the funds to move it.

The truss bridge was replaced by the Etowah County Commission after it became too expensive to rehabilitate. It was cut in half and now sits in two 80-foot spans on the proposed Black Creek Trail that would begin near Noccalula Falls. Officials had hoped to use the bridge to span a ravine on the trail, but it proved too expensive to move and use.

Etowah Historical Society President Danny Crownover said society members now are seeking to preserve the bridge, also known as the “Haunted Bridge,” by working with the city of Attalla. The bridge was considered “haunted” because of the noises that could be heard as cars went over the wooden planks and various legends that surrounded it."
