Crazy Annie's Bridge, just outside of Henderson, Minnesota.
Legend has it she was a war widow who went mad and drowned her three children before hanging herself.
Do their spirits still linger?https://podbay.fm/p/minnesota-mysteries/e/1569018211

I'm not very sure how to start this story but it's an experience I had last night and I will never forget it.
Background: During WW1 there was a lady named Annie and she had three kids. When her husband died in the war she went insane and drown her three kids in the creek behind her house, she then hung herself from one of the nearby trees.
My friends and I had heard about this from a girl we were talking to and we decided to check it out late at night. As soon as we showed up we were all having very bad vibes it might have been just because we were all a little nervous and didn't know what to expect but all together, bad vibes. When you pull up to this spot you drive down a long dirt road through the woods, I know very cliche but once you drive down this road a little ways there is an old bridge going across the creek so we stopped and parked on the bridge. At first we got out and stood there making jokes about it and stuff because we didn't really expect anything to happen. After a little while we got back in the car and sat there and listened to a station on the radio that is all static thinking a ghost could communicate with us. After a little while of us sitting there and hearing nothing, the radio starting making an extremely high pitched weird noise and we turned it off all a little freaked out. After that we were still sitting in the car with no radio, no lights, no nothing but we had the windows rolled down. We all sat there in dead silence when all of sudden we heard a woman scream bloody in the woods. Now it wasn't a normal scream it was more faint but not in a way where it seemed far away. After this we were all very freaked out but also excited something freaky actually happened. We got out of the car because there had been reports of hand prints on people cars when they go there and sure shit when we got out of the car there were a few hand prints but the freakiest one was on the back left window, three finger streaks all the way across the window. We sat for a little while longer and nothing else happened and we left.
We later asked my friend's dad about it and he said he went there as a kid as well and the house she lived in was still there at the time and you could see a rocking chair in the house moving on its own.
This was a really wild experience for my friends and I, we plan on going back sometime again and see what else happens. If anyone is interested you can look up crazy Annie in Henderson Minnesota on the interweb or maybe you even live nearby and will have the courage to check it out yourself.
