The Ghost of Bellamy Bridge
One of Florida's best known legends centers around this old iron-frame bridge spanning the Chipola River a few miles north of Marianna.
It is the centerpiece of Jackson County's tale of the Ghost of Bellamy Bridge. The story revolves around the 19th century marriage of Samuel and Elizabeth Jane Bellamy and her supposed death by fire at her own wedding.
I'm often asked about this story and have received a number of inquiries following the ghost hunt over the weekend at the Russ House in Marianna by a group of "paranormal investigators." So, I've started a new series on our sister blog, Two Egg, Florida. If you would like to know the true story behind this fascinating legend, just click here to check out the series!
