GSWR - Oconee River Bridge
Posted December 5, 2016, by Zebulan Rogers (Zeb2089 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Hey, there is some other old bridges that are in Montgomery county, and Toombs county area. If someone is willing,

I would gladly show someone around to take pictures of them. Just for some updates of the web site.
