History

A fun historical bridge in the middle of nowhere. Architecture that is still in place. The drive alone was great.

This bridge had my husband and I driving up and down Callahan Mountain Road. It is NOT easy to find. Your GPS will stop working because you're in the woods. And we couldn't find it on the old-school map. Nonetheless, we persevered and are glad we did. You'll know you're there when you see a metal fence along the side... More

This is a tranquil place. My husband and I have been several times. Never crowded just a beautiful place to sit and enjoy nature. We love to play with our dogs in the stream and put our feet in after a hike. It is awesome for pics as well.

Been coming here since I was a kid. Very photogenic bridge. Some improvements have been made over the past few years. There is a geocache there as well. You can follow the trail beyond the bridge for a nice hike. Great during the fall leaf change!

We stopped here for a quick peek while in Greenville. What a beautiful place to stop. I would loved to have spent more time here and had a picnic lunch. Perfect place for a photo shoot and exploring. It's worth going a few minutes out of your way to see this bridge.

My boyfriend and I made the 40 minute drive from where we were staying in NC to see this interesting, old bridge. It had a really creepy feel to it from the very second we parked the car, and crossed the street to the bridge. We were only there for less than 10 mins, as my boyfriend was not feeling... More

Definitely recommend this place to visit. A bit of history in a beautiful private setting. It's off the beaten track, but worth the drive.

The bridge is so well built that is has withstood over 200 years of use and the elements. Hopefully the state will renovate it so that it is standing for another 200.

Just a wonderful little short getaway right outside of Greenville. Peaceful, historic and just so much worth the visit more than once. Maybe next time we will pack a picnic lunch and stay a bit longer. If you've never been here you owe yourself a visit.

This is a very nice historical place to visit. It is great for backdrops for photos as well. It is over a hill so wear appropriate shoes.
