This was my second time visiting this bridge. The craftsmanship is amazing. I believe it was built in 1840. Such a lovely piece of history.

This bridge is so amazing! Standing inside and looking at the pegs and the great workmanship, I could just imagine what it might have been like so many years ago. This is a must visit for those people who enjoy Georgia history!
