Interesting to see a piece of SC history. Lovely, serene setting. We stopped here on our way to Greenville. While it was nice, I wouldn't recommend going out of the way to see it.

This is great to see if you like historical things. Haunted? I don't know but I've heard strange stories. I've been by it at night and fortunately or unfortunately however you look at it I saw no spooks.

This free attraction is worth the drive from Greenville. The bridge is amazing and holds so much history. It was use as the travel wagon road from Greenville, SC to Asheville, NC. The site is peaceful and serene. Spear time for this attraction to take in the scenery. It'll be worth it.

Note it is located fairly far from stores and facility. No restroom available. The bridge is an easy walk from it's parking lot across the street. The bridge is right next to the road.

Located just a short drive from Greenville/Travelers Rest, is this lovely old stonework bridge. The site is natural but not hard to access. It's a very short but steep walk from the parking area. I used a hiking pole and was fine. The stream is great for wading which my grandson greatly enjoyed. You can go for half and hour or take folding chairs and picnic by the stream. No facilities. Bring bug spray. It's shady so you may not need sunblock. Plan also to stop at roadside stands for local vegetables and fruits.

South Carolina's oldest bridge, named for the statesman Poinsett, also known for introducing the "poinsettia" plant to the US. It's a great little trip, the kids enjoyed the creek and the bridge, walking along the trails a bit.
