In the rural community of Clymer out in the midst of a vast wood there is a lonely dirt road that cuts its way through dense foliage and swamp called “Pond Road.” Pond Road is nothing more than a dirt path, which is little traveled and forgotten by the local community. However over the years and infamous legend has cropped up regarding this lonely stretch of road and swamp. The legend is that of George.
George’s roots are disputed between two popular accounts but the most prevalent is that of the accidental death of children at his hands. Sometime in the past, we can only assume at least twenty plus years, there was a bus accident within the town of Clymer. George was the unfortunate soul driving the bus and in turn blamed himself for the death of the children that were under is care. Distraught he made his way to the third bridge on Pond Road and hung himself from the railing.
The legend goes that if you should drive out to the bridges, there are three that cross across the swamp that is on either side of the dirt road; you can experience a strange phenomenon. The story goes that late at night you can drive to the first bridge and say “George, George, George” when you get out of your car, drive to the second bridge and repeat the chant, then drive to the third. Getting out of your car and leaving the keys to your car on your hood you say “George, George, George” for the third and final time. Upon the completion of your chant your car will start and underneath the bridge you can hear thrashing in the water. Supposedly the death throes of the tortured soul of George unable to rest for the guilt of what he had done keeps his soul bound to the earth.
