People have claimed many places in Michigan are haunted from cemeteries and houses to theaters, but one of the stranger places is the train bridge that crosses a dirt road in southern Michigan. South of Adrian in a rural farming area where the tracks cross over Bailey Highway is an old bridge covered in graffiti. They say at night you can hear the sound of a woman screaming. As the story goes, in the late 1800s a nearby barn caught fire in the middle of the night. The farmer ran into the barn to save his horses. His wife who was carrying their infant child ran to the railroad tracks to flag down a passing train. She tripped and fell and both were killed by the passing locomotive. Her husband was killed in the fire while trying to rescue the horses. They say you can still hear the woman screaming. Others have said they have seen the spirit of the farmer on the tracks, presumably looking for his wife.
I am not sure if there is any truth to the story but it is one of those urban legends that has grown with the advent of the internet.
