Old Little Crooked Creek Bridge
Posted August 30, 2019, by Deborah Perry (mysecndwnd [at] hotmail [dot] com)

Google GPS had this listed wrong. It is actually on Crooked Creek Road, not Little Crooked Creek Road. This is my private drive, but I would love to see it listed with the historical society. I currently maintain the bridge by replacing boards as needed. It was built in 1903. It is 80 feet long and 12 feet wide.

This is a 1941 map that includes the bridge when it was still in use (as part of a public road.

It's on the western side of Anderson County near the Anderson/Spencer/Shelby border, just below "WAYSIDE."
