Written by Eddie Douthitt

This little bridge is about a tenth of a mile north and west of the Conasauga River Bridge. It crosses Mill Creek near where it joins the Conasauga River. It looks to have been abandoned for a very long time as there are full sized trees grown up through the deck stringers. If anyone knows any history about it, please contact me.
