This bridge is haunted by a man holding out a pitcher of beer to passers-by. The ghost is said to be that of William Richardson, who was murdered by three loyalist soldiers on the bridge in 1783. The whole town was celebrating the colonial victory over England, and he offered them a pitcher of beer in celebration of the signing of the Treaty of Paris.

This is not the original bridge. This bridge replaced the original bridge in the 1920's. Apparently replacing the bridge is what set him off, because that is when the sightings of his ghost started.

he is always reported as a ghostly figure, holding out something in front of him.

The last sighting of him in as a spirit and offering beer was back in 1979. To my knowledge he only appears as an orb since his last sighting.

I live about 5 mile's from Goose River bridge so I am planning to investigate this more and I am no Paranormal investigator just someone very intreeged by him.

I went to the bridge 2 week's ago April 2006.I first wen't at dusk and found many orb's but it didn't mean it was him. I went back the following afternoon to take photo's I walked all over his favorite place's including lovers lane. Then I decided to take a walk to the old bridge where he was killed. I found nothing, I then had a strange feeling to look up which is under the new bridge. My first photo was a medium in size green orb. Then after I saw the Orb a ray of beautiful pinkish purple colored thing appeared, it was amazing so I started talking to it. I asked if it was indeed the Pitcher Man to please show him self again. Sure enough he showed him self. Every time I asked for it to show it self it came right back at least 7 time's then it must have gotten tired of me or just tired and stopped showing up. I started a mission to find him again so walked around finding him no where and again I ended up back under the bridge. I asked if he was still there, and yes he was,again I got the same colors you can view my pictures at:
















I am going back today with different weather condition's to see if I can find this again. It is a damp drizzly day and if it come's back I will know I have found something for sure and will update you further.

I returned back today and found nothing he, either was walking about his favorite trails Or the constant rain had him feeling lazy and he wished not to be seen.:).

I will keep this topic updated as I continue to search more for Fredrick William Richardson the Pitcher Man.
