The Old Stone Bridge in Fayetteville, TN was at one time an amazing six span, 450' long stone arch bridge built over the Elk River. Legend has it that the bridge was so beautiful that General Sherman himself spared the bridge when him and his army marched over it during the Civil War. Flooding destroyed the bridge in 1969 and today the bridge lies in ruins. Some stones from this bridge are now apart of a "replica" pedestrian bridge about 300 yards to the northeast of this bridge in the Stone Bridge Memorial Park.
