30 years ago there was a small satanic cult meeting on a bridge on amherst road. Myself and a friend witnessed one of these meetings.

I heard that as well, but I'm kind of confused. Didn't the city of Paris blow that bridge up and build a new one?
So you saw the actual meeting?

I've never heard that story... But either way, I was trying to tell a friend the story about Amherst the other day and I couldn't remember all the details.

Believe the hype. Myself, with a few friends, went down Amherst back in the day (early 80's)think'in we'd talk smack to the Satanic Cult. As we approached the bridge spoke of earlier, we were able to see a large circle of lights through the trees. As we crossed the bridge, fire flashed from beneath the hood of our car. We all crapped our pants, made a quick U-turn, and I've never been back since. Man those were the days. Unless you have a very strong faith in the almighty, I'd suggest staying away. That place is as scary as hell!!!

Thanks for the stories, but does anyone remember any stories that were told to them? Such as sacrifice, and an old house down there with satanic markings?

Some teenagers in 1989 set fire to the bridge and it made the PARIS NEWS. One of them got a year's probation for arson. Their "attack" on the bridge was because they had heard the rumors of the Satanic meetings there.

I believe the blue light boy lived on the corner of 14th or 15th SW and Kaufman street.

Are you sure it was 1989 that the bridge burned? I had pics of my son on the old bridge and I would swear that he was older than that in that picture.

Do you have proof it was teenagers? I was told (by the person that burned it) they did it. This person was no teenager.

I have no idea who burned it. All I know was that it was a rustic kind of bridge that you could take good pics on any time of the year. I hated to see it gone.

We had a nice little picnic spot not far from that bridge.
