Reference to a bridge on Butler's Creek which may or may not be this bridge. If it is, the date of the document may be important.

Given the date, it was probably built by the Georgia Railroad.

But that's just a guess.

I was contacted by Shirley Waldera who is seeking information about this bridge and its history. She has an 1854 date listed for the bridge. If anyone has any additional information on this bridge please update this page or post a forum comment. Thanks!
