Jamestown is the home of Lydia’s Bridge, where in the 1920s a girl and her date were coming home from a local dance on a night that was purportedly chockfull of fog. Hurrying so as not to pass curfew, Lydia’s date lost control of the automobile, colliding with the Southern Railroad Underpass Bridge. Numerous stories began to surface as people told of giving a ride to a hitchhiker dressed all in white who called herself Lydia, a girl who recites her address and still expresses concern regarding being late for her curfew. Disappearing each time before she is taken to her desired location, Lydia is now called the Phantom Hitchhiker, Lady in White, and the Vanishing Lady.
