History

The Bayview Bridge, which connects between Mulga and Bayview, Alabama, is haunted by the spirit of a woman in a wedding dress. The reason for her haunting is uncertain; there are three urban legends surrounding her presence at the bridge.

In one version, the young woman fled from her wedding, driving down the Bayview Bridge, where she accidentally drove over the side. In another, the soon-to-be bride was going to pick up her wedding dress, which had been made by a woman in Bayview. On her way home from picking it up, she was attacked and killed by a pack of wild dogs.

The third version suggests that the woman and her baby were knocked into the water below the bridge by a passing truck. The two drowned. Witnesses have reported seeing her pacing back and forth across the bridge in search of her baby.

      There are a lot of haunted bridges that women with babies haven’t had such good of luck on.

    In checking out the story, while it is an intriguing tale, it turns out that the bridge in NOT in Mobile, AL, but in Mulga/Bayview, AL just to the north and east of Birmingham. Sorry, but I do a haunted history tour for Mobile and would have LOVED to have used this story, but I do my best to research the tale when at all possible.
