Spook Bridge

Cate Short

Spook Bridge, located on the county line between Brooks County and Lowndes County in the U.S. state of Georgia, is an abandoned open spandrel arch bridge crossing the Withlacoochee River on a closed section of Old Quitman Highway (also known as Blue Springs Road, formerly U.S. Route 84). It is considered Lowndes County's most famous relic and is decaying, becoming a dangerous site, due to its abandonment. For decades, it has served as the center of legends and small town curiosity in the nearby cities of Quitman and Valdosta. The bridge has developed a reputation for being a popular "hangout" for teenagers and is rumored to be haunted due to its isolated and overgrown environment. There is presently a Feature Film being produced by RKDS Entertainment & Media, LLC which includes stories dating back from the 1870s to present day 2016. Production began on June 18, 2016. The film will include scenes from the inside of Brooks County Courthouse, Kingfisher Plantation, The Old County Jail, Neely Service Center, Royal Cafe, The Quitman Free Press, Downtown Quitman, Brooks County and at the Old abandoned bridge itself, SPOOK BRIDGE, as the star of the film. The movie is scheduled for release in 2017.
