Campbell's Covered Bridge








 Campbell's Covered Bridge, South Carolina

"This bridge, built in 1909, is the last extant covered bridge in South Carolina. Built by Charles Irwin (1878-1966), it was named for Alexander Lafayette Campbell (1836-1920), who owned and operated a grist mill here for many years. Measuring 35 feet long and 12 feet wide, it is an excellent example of a four-span Howe truss, featuring diagonal timbers and vertical iron rods."

Wow, what a beauty. SO GORGEOUS!! Great fall colors. Taken October 2021. We love finding covered bridges, always so fun. I don't think I've ever seen one I didn't enjoy. Always fun to learn the history. On a sign right there beside this beauty ...had to share with ya. Thank you for stopping by today. Hope you are well. Take Care. Beth ( ;
