As you can read above, this is the only remaining covered bridge in the state of South Carolina. Covered bridges are not as prevalent in the southeast as in other areas of the country, so I might get a little more excited about them than people that see them all the time. There are several in the state of Alabama that I would like to check out.
This one is special to me as my late Father-in-law took me to it on the fourth of July a few years ago. He was sick at that time and died in 2005. This was the first time I have been back to see it.
Land around the north side of the creek has been cleared and I think they are expanding the park that belongs to Greenville county. That will be a great thing!
There originally was an old grist mill at the location and there was a lot of rock work near the bridge. Some of the rocks had shells included in the grout years ago....would love to see photos of the old grist mill!
The more I research these places, the more places I find I want to visit! This is my third covered bridge in a week and a half!
I enjoy papercrafting, scrapbooking, photography, travel and sewing. My latest hobby is knitting. I have been married for 37 years to my college sweetheart and we have two grown children, two more children (added through marriage...our children's spouses) a granddaughter and two grandsons. I love to create artwork and share with my friends.
