My husband and I bought the piece of property from which one of the pictures was taken. We love the bridge and hope that Cherokee County will not put a pipe in and pave over. The Dowda Grist Mill use to be just north of the bridge, but is no longer there. The mill was actually on the property we now own. I would love ANY information that anyone may have. Keep the bridge!!!!
Those guard rails must be a recent addition, as I didn't remember seeing those (only the older rails you see on the sides were there) last time I went across (a couple of years ago). There used to be another very similar bridge a small distance away, but it was replaced with one of those large pipes and just paved over like a normal road. I'm surprised they didn't do that with this bridge.
