Neglected Landmark: Coheelee Creek Covered Bridge, Hilton (GA)

Coheelee Creek Covered Bridge, Hilton, GA

Constructed in 1891 by the Early County Commissioners, this relic of by-gone days is the southernmost covered bridge in the United States.  The bridge consists of two spans, measuring 96 feet in length.  Of the queen-post truss modified design, it stretches across Coheelee Creek with its picturesque waterfalls.  The Fannie Askew Williams Park, a county maintained picnic area, is adjacent to the bridge.  

 Tragically, poor supervision of the site has resulted in prolific graffiti on the entire structure.
