Despite the tacky-looking streetlamps leading up to and added to the bridge (I guess the town had money budgeted that needed to be spent to include so many lights!) this piece of history will live on thanks to the town of Wytheville. There is also the historic (National Register) Stones or Reed Mill just upstream, although this mill property is in private hands.
