It's Sunday morning, which seems as good a time as any to tell a ghost story...
Local legend has it that the Kissing Bridge of West Montrose is haunted.
|West Montrose, Ontario|
West Montrose is a sleepy town, surrounded in acres of farmland and solitude. The town was largely settled by Old Order Mennonites. Many of the town's descendents continue to live and practice traditional Mennonite customs, including the use of horse and buggy.
The bridge was built by two brothers in 1880.
Many young couples would meet under the bridge, out of sight of any prying eyes.
Until one night...
A young couple agreed to meet at the bridge, under the cover of dark. But the ill-fated couple did not meet that night, and instead the young girl's life was tragically cut short when she trampled by a horse and buggy, passing beneath the bridge.
To this day, she has been known to roam the bridge at night, looking for her sweetheart.
Residents hear the clatter of horse-hooves when the bridge is empty.
100 years later, and no one will walk alone on the Kissing Bridge.
