Miller Bridge
Posted March 21, 2010, by Charles Stuart, Cleburne County Historical Society (cchist [at] ipa [dot] net)

The photos shown here are almost certainly of the Edgemont Bridge, not Miller. Edgemont is a few miles upstream from Miller on the Little Red River. The road turning left at the far end, the sun shadow angles and the background are consistent with the Edgemont location and not Miller. There are no known photos of the original Miller Bridge. It was replaced about 1935 with another suspension bridge then flooded by Greers Ferry Lake in 1962.

Do you have other pictures, especially of Higden, AR before Greers Ferry Dam was built? I am trying to locate pictures of the old town of Higden just before the dam was built. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you, JoAnn
