Inktober #7 - “The Lady in White of Jamestown, NC”
“The Lady in White,” or the also known, “Hitchhiking Ghost” is a common urban legend not only to the US but to the world over. If a place has cars, there is bound to be a story of a hitchhiker trying to thumb a ride, getting picked up, only to then disappear from the backseat of the car once the driver gets to the destination. The common theme among these stories is the hitchhiker is always in white. Head to toe white.
The local one for me right now is in the next town over, Jamestown. There’s a ghost of a flapper who appears from time to time near an overpass on Main St.. (Yes, actual “Main Street.” It’s a small town.) She is so well known for popping up in that area that the bridge is nicknamed, “Lydia’s Bridge,” after her.
I’ve never seen her but I can never pass a good urban legend involving a ghost.
