Hangman's Bridge in Anson
As this urban legend goes, authorities hung a man off the Clear Fork Bridge. He was accused of raping Mrs. Presley, a Jones County resident, then hiding her body under the bridge.
Days later the Sheriff and two Deputies found a man 'they believed' to be the rapist and hung him off the bridge. It's that mans spirit that today roams the 'Presley Bridge' as the locals call it now, looking to exact his revenge on the Sheriff and his Deputies for hanging an innocent man.
Strange USA.com has the location of the old 'Presley Bridge' on CR-429. The bridge is all metal and made lots of noise when driven over. However the bridge is off limits to vehicles today. I've been told by the locals that the wind can be heard blowing on one side of the bridge, while the other side is calm.
The one strange abnormality that I personally experienced while researching this story and photographing the bridge is that, underneath one side of the bridge was hot and breezy while the other side was calm and "very" cool. BTW, I took the photo in July. I say, there's something strange going on there. I got out of there as fast as I could.
I then contacted Jones County Attorney Investigator Mike Middleton who said "I've heard the stories but the old all steel bridge was replaced with a new bridge many years ago." The old bridge remains in tact about fifty feet from the county road. Maybe that's why the urban legend has died down some.
No word if Investigator Middleton or the Jones County Sheriff have ever been on the Presley Bridge late at night.
