The Banwell (Terror) Bridge in Fort Dodge is one of Iowa's most haunted bridges. It has been around since the 1800s and there are tons of eerie tales surrounding it. One of the stories surrounding the bridge include a woman who brought her children there to watch the trains pass below. She threw them over the bridge railings, watching as they were struck and killed by the train. She then jumped in front of the train herself. Rumor has it if you drive onto the bridge and stop your car without locking the doors and windows, the woman's spirit may try to throw you off. Those who are brave enough to get out of their cars have reported seeing strange orbs of light, hearing voices in the woods, or the sound of a woman moaning under the bridge. Some have even reported handprints on their car windows.
