Located in the Oak Grove area, Burnt Bridge Road intersects with Highway 589. The bridge is located right where this intersection occurs.

The story goes that a young woman on either her prom or wedding day was killed here. Her ghost is said to jump on to the hood of a car crossing the bridge at midnight. Some say the headlights must be off in order to see the specter, but opinions vary.
