Alliance, OH Has a Cry Baby Bridge

 THIS STORY COMES FROM MIKE, MY FORMER HUSBAND, WHO LIVED IN THE ALLIANCE AREA MOST OF HIS LIFE. YOU CAN ALSO FIND IT ON THE STARK COUNTY OHIO EXPLORATION SOCIETY PAGE.
I spent the day in Alliance, Ohio yesterday and had a great time there! 
This bridge is on Webb Avenue, but I do not know yet what little river it is spanning.  The waters look deep and muddy. 
 The story Mike told me was that a young girl threw her baby off the side of the bridge when she didn't want it anymore.  You now can hear the cries of the infant coming from under the bridge if you stand on it at midnight.  I am sure there is more detail to this story, so if you have any information or know a different story, please let me know!  ghosting12@yahoo.com

Not the real bridge. The original was back by the Jewish cemetery and is no long standing.
