Vermont Halloween Events & Attractions

Emily's bridge, haunted stowe, vt covered bridgeEMILY’S BRIDGE
Stowe,  VT
Come meet Emily …if you dare! Vermont’s only haunted covered bridge is home to Emily, a disgruntled poltergeist and Vermont’s most famous spirit. It is reported that Emily gets angrier and angrier with each passing year. This is no commercial Halloween tour, folks – it’s the real deal! Locals will tell you to be careful when crossing the bridge, and many will flat-out refuse to go near it after dark. For the last 150 years, events at the bridge tell of shaking cars, humans and livestock slashed by invisible claws to the point of drawn blood, and cameras consistently failing to operate correctly.
