I heard a story about the bridge downtown being haunted by a little girl who supposedly got ran over by a school bus. I think it was sometime in the 60s. I haven't seen it personally, but someone else has. There was also another ghost of a girl that died in a wreck out on 43 going towards East Springfield. It happened in the 70s, and my mom and a friend of hers were coming home and got caught up in traffic for awhile. From what I heard you can see her during
rainy nights, but I'm not sure of the validity of that story.|

Comment by William: I found out a little more about both stories from my mom. The little girl was 12 when she died. She was hit by a car supposedly by an elderly person who shouldn't have been driving. This was in 1962. Someone supposedly saw her apparition on the bridge downtown. The other girl was someone my mom knew. She was from the Steubenville area. It was raining pretty heavily that night, and my mom was out with a friend looking for a dress. When they were on the way back home there was a bunch of cars. The girl had hydroplaned, and she died in the accident. She was a year older than my mom. This was in 1979.

Bergholz 4 miles away: John Gregg Elementary School. I felt a feeling of such evil I never felt before. The ceiling fan came on by itself and turned off by itself. Other people I know have seen and experienced things here....
