Not Wirth the Consequences
Among other things, Brookfield is known for its wonderful parks and public spaces. Franklin Wirth Park is no exception, with a public acquatic center, baseball diamonds and tennis courts, and trailheads for the Dousman and Beverly Hills Trails. There is a bridge in Wirth Park along these trails which carries a tragic history. Details vary, but the most common version of the story says a teenage girl became pregnant, and rather than face the wrath of her deeply religious family, she hid the pregnancy. Not knowing where to turn or who to trust, she instead threw the baby into Underwood Creek. Overcome with grief and guilt, she killed herself near the same bridge a few weeks later. She still walks along the haunted trails and shallow banks, looking for her only child.
