Howdy Scott! You might want to increase the font size of the story part. It's a little small. I saw your picture on G+. Looks like a cool spot. (You can delete this comment)

Automatic translation thanks to:
The best place to park is at the end of Old Lansford Rd. By the dirt mound. Cross over the dirt mound and walk. It might be an 1/8 mile from there.

The portion of Old Lansford Road between S.C. 9 business and Memorial Park Road is nothing more than an overgrown and under-used eyesore now.

But 100 years ago, the deserted stretch was one of the county’s busiest and most vibrant thoroughfares.

Although it’s now abandoned, the one-lane trestle that crosses Cane Creek has become affectionately known in local folklore as “Green Hand Bridge.

Two Lancaster County men, who wished to remain anonymous, shared this version of “The Legend of Green Hand Bridge” with The Lancaster News in October 1988.

Here’s their story:

“One night, me and some of my friends were coming across here (Old Landsford Road) and we saw him walking on the bank over there,” the man said, as he motioned to an area on the left side of the creek.

“Right there’s where I saw it,” the other man said, pointing to the water below the bridge.

“It was green and coming out of the water. Nothing but the hand.”

Local storytellers say the creek that flows beneath the bridge was once the sight of a fierce American Revolution skirmish. During the course of the struggle, a British soldier’s hand was ripped from his arm by a saber and fell into the murky waters below the bridge.

And sometimes on nights of good visibility, his wandering spirit can be seen combing the edge of the stream in search of his missing appendage and his sword.

A picture of you on the bridge is all that's required. Enjoy the site.

## ** FTF! Enjoyed a drive in the country in search of mostly OCNA ftfs. Had a nice walk here, and went beyond this bridge to look around the railroad building, tracks, and bridge some. ** ##



### **Thanks, sseegars, for setting this up!** ###
