This is the older of two rare brick arch bridges.
The other bridge is
just north of this one. There are two major areas of significance for both
bridges. First, brick arch bridges are extremely rare nationwide. Second, in
Georgia, very few surviving bridges date to before 1800, and these bridges are
particularly significant as bridges pre-dating the Civil War.
This bridge is handsomely designed with a number of
architectural embellishments that enhance its appearance. Although the bridge is
abandoned, it appears to retain good historic and structural integrity.
