On the road - Campbell's Bridge

Campbell's Bridge, Greenville, SC 
I've had such a lovely weekend. I made a beeline out of town Friday afternoon heading upstate to Greenville and we made the most of our time. More to follow but this scene was one of our last stops this morning as we detoured on our way back.

Constructed in 1909 Campbell’s Covered Bridge is the only remaining covered bridge in the State of South Carolina. The 38 foot long, 12 foot wide pine structure that spans Beaverdam Creek was built by Charles Irwin Willis. Locals believe that the bridge was named for Lafayette Campbell, who at the time of the bridge’s construction owned 194 acres in the immediate area. The bridge and surrounding acreage is presently owned by Greenville County and has been transformed into a passive park where visitors can picnic, explore the foundations of the old grist mill and home site, wet their feet on a hot summer day in Beaverdam Creek, and learn about the area through interpretive signage.

When I was growing up there were a good half dozen covered bridges in the NW South Carolina counties.I think about all were lost to firebug vandals.

Please let us know your other stops, as I've got older I sometime forget whats right under my nose!
