Moore’s Crossing Bridge is considered by many as one of the most haunted places in Austin, Texas. Witnesses say ghostly apparitions have been spotted on and around the bridge. Legend states that a white man was hung, by a mob, from one of the cross beams because of a forbidden love affair with a black woman.

Witnesses say after midnight you can see the man hanging from the crossbeam swaying in a slight breeze. Below, a shadow of a female figure is seen looking up in the direction of the swinging body. Many witnesses over the years have reported seeing people walking across the bridge dressed in out-of-date clothing. A couple, while crossing the old narrow bridge by car in the 80’s, speak of a man on foot waving to them as they pass him. They backed up to see the strangely dressed man but found that he had vanished.
Moore’s Crossing can be accessed through Richard Moya Park during day time hour of operation. You can access the bridge by a dirt back road at night. Just head east past the entrance of the park, take a right at the first light, and take a right onto the dirt road by the gas station that looks like it’s straight out of Texas Chainsaw Massacre. Inviting, isn’t it?
I have filmed two paranormal investigation videos at Moore’s Crossing Bridge. The first video is one of the first paranormal investigations I ever shot! Check out “Real Paranormal Video: Ghosts of Moore’s Crossing”. Even better, I went back years later with more experience and completed a more comprehensive and thorough paranormal investigation of the haunted bridge.
