Old Shoal Creek Bridge

Map 

Description 

The first railroad through Hartselle (S&NA) was constructed in 1870, and about the time the railroad was absorbed by the L&N in the 1910s, the tracks through Hartselle were realigned to the northeast leaving the old railroad bed to become local streets. A bridge was once located here and today there is some sort of bridge structure at this location.
