DeCoursey Bridge/Greenbriar Swamp - Legend of Big Lizz - Real Cambridge Haunted Place

  • Cambridge, MD
The Decoursey Bridge was constructed over the Greenbriar Swamp, which is where "Big Lizz" went with her master to help bury money. Once she helped him bury the money, he decapitated her and left her alone, never to be found. Her spirit is said to haunt the bridge, holding her head in one hand and calling out to onlookers to follow her to the spot where her master's money is buried. Local legend says if you follow her, you won't return! If you're brave enough to try and get a glimpse of Big Lizz, park your car on the bridge at midnight and flash your headlights twice before turning the car off. Good luck and happy hunting!

  • Used to go crabbing off bridge as a child

    My grandfather told me this story as a child. He was born in 1912 in Dorchester county, MD. I never saw her myself, but my grandfather claimed he caught a glimpse of someone. I thought he was pulling my leg because he liked to joke but there is no way he could have faked the fear on his face. Definitely looked like he saw a ghost.
