Covered Bridges in Georgia

On our drive back to NC, we decided to take a 20 minute or so detour to explore one of the many covered bridges still standing in Georgia. To see a full map of these covered bridges, check out this blog by James Walsh

Elder’s Mill Bridge on Rose Creek

This one is located about 15 minutes outside the town of Watkinsville and we were easily able to find it using google maps.

A brief description of what makes this covered bridge unique is that this 1897 bridge is also known as Rose Creek Bridge was originally spanning Calls Creek. In 1924, the bridge was moved by wagon to its present location over Rose Creek. It is the one of a few bridges in Georgia that still carries traffic without the assistance of any underlying steel beams.  To find out more about this bridge click here
