The Old Bridge above the Tunnel in Asheville

I've heard vague stories about ghost sightings on the old wooden bridge above Tunnel Road in Asheville. I've also heard stories about the Mansion at the top of the mountain. Has anybody got the real story of these places.
I'd worked on an audit of the Timeshare company that was using the mansion a few years ago. I was descending a staircase about 7 one evening and thought I saw an aparition. I was totally creeped out and left immediately.

The bridge you are refering to is Helen's Bridge. Helen's Bridge is located on Beaucatcher Mountain.  The legend goes that a woman, inconsolable after the death of her
daughter in a fire, hung herself from the bridge.  There has been much paranormal activity associated with the bridge, apparitions, orbs, etc.  Helen is supposed to wander the mountain in a long gown, asking those she meets if they have seen her daughter. One of
the most unusual occurrences are the reports of car trouble at the bridge.  I have spoken to people who have experienced car trouble at the bridge or soon afterwards.  My own car's battery was dead the morning after I visited Helen's Bridge.

about 11 yrs ago me and a friend met some guys up there and the guys thought it would be funny to strip off there clothes and make fun of Helen after we left  my friend lost control of the car we were in and we ended up off the side of the mountain.luckily a small tree caught the car and we were able to get out but that was the scariest thing that ever happened to me.

i remember hearing eerie footsteps coming from all around the woods at that bridge and it was on a late evening back in january 1996, and there was hardly any cars  coming and going around the highway during that time, which was my very first visit. i have also taken many many photos of mists and orbs over the years, so yes i believe strongly that bridge is DEFINITELY HAUNTED by that woman who hung herself!
