Built in 1912 over the dry Arroyo Seco River bed, by 1932 this beautiful bridge was called, “Suicide Bridge” because over 100 people have plunged 150 feet to their death from here onto the rocky ground below.
Along with the suicides, of course, came the ghosts. Several spirits haunt the bridge, including a man with wire rimmed glasses and a vanishing woman in a long flowing robe. She is often seen standing atop one of the parapets, vanishing as she throws herself off. Even below the bridge, ghosts are said to walk the river bed. Strange sounds and cries echo throughout the dark nights. Misty forms have been reported and animals act strange in the area. Homeless campers under the bridge have regularly reported seeing ghostly figures and hearing mysterious noises.
