THE BLOODY BUCKET BRIDGE DEBUNKED
The Bloody bucket Bridge is a bridge located in Wauchula, Florida, that demonstrates how urban legends and can quite rapidly evolve. According to the book Weird Florida, a freed black slave took up midwifery after the Civil War. But she killed dozens of the babies she delivered, and somehow no one noticed right away.
Eventually she went mad from guilt of killing all those babies (of course she must not have been playing with a full deck to begin with. Der hey.), and started to think her mop bucket filled with blood. She would dump the bucket out on a bridge, only to have it fill back up with blood again. (Urban) Legend says if you go to the bridge on the night of the full moon, you can see the river below turn to blood! Muhahahaha!
Bloody Bucket Bridge must date
back to at least Civil War times, if the legend is true. So what does
this old, scary bridge look like? It looks like this:
Now you're probably thinking, "Wait the bridge doesn't look like it dates back to the Civil War." That's because it doesn't. It was built in 1970! I've heard there was a bridge before that built in 1950, but even so a freed slave would still have been around their 90s back when that bridge was built.
Now for the
real truth: The bridge is actually called Griffin Road Bridge, and it
wasn't built until the 20th .
Prior to that, there was no bridge! In the 1940's, before Hardee County
became a dry county, there existed a bar on Griffin Road (located at a
curve before it runs into Miller Road) called “The Big Apple”. It was a
rough and tumble kind of place, where you'd go to get a drink of rot
gut and try not to get in a knife fight. It was a real place, and I've
talked to several old timers who went to the bar in their younger,
rowdier days. Because of the fights that often occurred in
the place, it was nicked named “The Bloody Bucket”, and the name
is nicknamed “Bloody Bucket Road” and the bridge on Griffith Road over
the Peace River became known as “Bloody Bucket Bridge” solely for that
reason, and that reason alone!
I knew a local historian who told me how his great-grandfather's
brother had been killed by an Indian, and then later avenged his death.
He spotted the Indian one day crossing a creek, started fighting him,
and finally killed the Indian by stabbing him to death with his pocket
knife. That's the kind of people they were...they were tough, because
they had to be to in the
19th century frontiers
