Van Sant Covered Bridge

The Van Sant Covered Bridge, also known as the Beaver Dam Bridge, is located in Solebury Township, near New Hope in Bucks County, Pennsylvania. This wooden covered bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. Built in 1875, the 86 foot span crosses the Pidcock Creek near Washington Crossing State Park. Local legends say that the bridge is haunted, with claims that one can hear a baby crying near the bridge at nighttime. Another legend says that figures can be seen hanging from the rafters, as this was a spot where horse thieves were hanged in the past. Stopping your car in the bridge for a few minutes is a hobby among local teenagers. Sounds, hand prints, and illusions have all been experienced. Hellish illusions could occur unexpectedly replacing timid neighbors excited yearnings.
