South Harpeth River TN 100 Bridge
Posted July 8, 2009, by Betty Greer Kurmes (kurmeswm [at] sbcglobal [dot] net)

I grew up at that bridge, long before the new Hwy 96 came thru Hwy 100. As children we (all cousins) swam everyday during the summer from day light to dark. Back then it was deep and you were not scared to swim in it. Thanks for the memories. Betty
