The Legend of Stuckey's Bridge
by Lori Crane
In 1901, the Virginia Bridge & Iron Company began re-building a fifty-year-old Mississippi bridge and discovered bodies buried on the banks of the river.
In earlier days, flatboats witnessed him on the bridge at night, waving a lantern, offering travelers a hot meal and a soft bed.
Not much else is known about the man locals refer to as Old Man Stuckey...until now.
