Old Webb Mill Road Bridge
Posted July 17, 2014, by Penny B. Frazier (pona216 [at] windstream [dot] net)

I grew up(in 50's and 60's) just "down the road a piece" from this bridge and have fond memories of crossing it and of getting fresh ground corn meal from Webb's Mill. The road that used to cross it was Hwy. 64, which went to Raleigh from Eastern part of state thru Rocky Mount. We called that "Old 64"! Then "New 64" was built and later "The Bypass".

I am fascinated by abandoned buildings, amusement parks, and other structures. Thanks for sharing your photos!
