The piers are the remains of the former East Tennessee and Georgia Railway bridge. This bridge was replaced by the current bridge in 1912.
There's a "street view" from the creek at these bridges.
The bridge piers are the remnants of the original East Tennessee and Georgia bridge. It was replaced in 1912 by the current bridge. The East Tennessee bridge was constructed entirely of stone and was not attacked during the Civil War. It was the site of a fatal derailment in 1866 when a train derailed due to the approach to the bridge being washed out during a flood.
I looked for a listing for a bridge that the piers in the creek were for but couldn't find it.Anybody know?
