Interesting Facts about Cry Baby Bridge:

Troy was a city that was impacted by severe flooding during the Great Dayton Flood of 1913. The Great Dayton Flood was the greatest natural disaster in the history of Ohio. It was caused by a series of three winter storms that hit the state in March of 1913. A number of cities in Ohio were affected by flooding but the ones that were hit hardest were Dayton, Piqua, Hamilton, and Troy along the Great Miami River.

The Ohio National Guard was not able to reach Dayton for several days as a result of the flooding throughout Ohio. Refugee camps were constructed for people who were suddenly homeless as a result of the high water. Over 360 people died in the Great Dayton Flood of 1913.

According to some stories by Troy locals, the Cry Baby Bridge is haunted because a couple in the 1930’s had a car accident and their tiny baby was thrown from the vehicle. Governor’s Bridge in Annapolis, Maryland has a similar story about a car accident and the death of a baby at the bridge. Indeed, there are several bridges in the United States with similar stories about a baby that dies in a car accident:

Ghosts at Cry Baby Bridge:
