Salem-Shotwell Covered Bridge
The Salem-Shotwell Covered Bridge, also known as the Pea Ridge Covered Bridge, is a locally owned wooden covered bridge that spans Rocky Brook in Lee County, Alabama, United States. It is located halfway down Park Road at Opelika Municipal Park, which is off North 5th Street in the city of Opelika.
During its time over Wacoochee Creek, the Salem-Shotwell Covered bridge is said to be haunted by children that were killing in a car accident. The original bridge was the site of the tragedy when a woman and her two children were crossing it in a car and the bridge collapsed. All three people were killed.
Urban legend has it that if you put candy on the edge of it at night, by the light of your car headlights you will see the ghost children come to collect it.
Many of the locals say this story never happened. However, there was a girl that was strangled on the bridge, confirmed by police officers that worked the scene.
