Bridge: The Hanger/Bridge

Location: Douglass, Kansas, USA
Built: Unknown
Status: Open

History

About a mile west of the city of Douglass, Kansas out in the woods, there is a small, old bridge that goes over  a creek. Near to it is an equally old tree on the northern side of the bridge. During the 19th century, the tree was used for hanging African-Americans in the Douglass-Rose Hill area, particularly those who disobeyed their masters.

The Douglass Historical Museum has information on the history of the tree, and they have an image of a lynching with three people hanging from it. In 2004, the tree collapsed, but it crosses the creek.

If you visit the bridge late at night, odd happenings will occur. Apparitions, strange noises, and orbs are just some of the activities that happen here.
