The Gold Brook Bridge | Emily’s Bridge Information:

The Gold Brook Bridge was built by John W. Smith in 1844. It carries Covered Bridge Road over Gold Brook in Stowe Hollow.

Locals claim that a young woman fell in love with a man and the two decided to elope. She had been raised in an abusive family and she yearned to get away from her parents. Her lover told her to meet him at the nearby covered bridge. So she went to the bridge and waited there patiently. But he didn’t come. When he didn’t show up, the woman unraveled the rope tying up her belongings and decided to use it to hang herself rather than return to her parents. Her lover showed up the next morning and found her lifeless body hanging from the bridge. In fear, he buried her nearby. This is why the Gold Brook Bridge (also known as Emily’s Bridge) is considered haunted.

Emily’s Bridge is located 1.8 miles south of junction VT108 on VT100, then 1.3 miles left on Gold Brook Road and just left on Covered Bridge Road.
