It is said, Spirits walk among us in this world. As the Urban Legend, of the Governor's Bridge in Bowie, MD has it, a young girl lived in Bowie in the 70's. When 17 years old she had a baby out of wedlock. She kept the secret from her parents by going to Atlanta to live with her aunt, and have the baby. While there, her mother passed away. Shortly after, she returned home with her infant daughter. Since her father was a minister, it was taboo in the town where his Church had many nearby residents. After a heated argument with her father, she ran to her room, picked up the baby, and wrapped her in a blanket. She fled her home and walked to the Governor's Bridge on that cold and chilly night. While standing on the bridge, she felt the pain of her mother's passing and the thought of being alone and cold. It is said she dropped the baby over the railing into the icy waters below, and then realizing what she had done, jumped in to try and save her. They both perished and on a cool October, foggy, evening it is reported you can still see her standing on the bridge, crying and holding the baby in her arms. Now it's the year 2000 and a new family has moved into the same house she had lived in. They have a daughter, Sarah, also 17. One stormy night, while staring out of her bedroom window, Sarah thinks she sees a young woman on the bridge, holding something in her arms. The next day, she tells her friend Alice about it, who in turn reveals to Sarah the story of the urban legend, The Ghost of Governor's Bridge.
The Ghost of Governor's Bridge was picked, by Marcus Smith, award winning photographer, to have a trailer filmed and will be completed late summer of 2009.
