Campbell's Covered Bridge

[Nice picture of Campbell's Covered bridge.]

Cambell's Covered Bridge is the last standing covered bridge in South Carolina. There were three covered bridges still standing about 15 years ago, but Campbell's is the sole survivor. It was built in 1909 over the narrow Beaver Dam Creek in northern Greenville County, near Tigerville and Gowensville. It was built by Charles Irwin Willis and named after Alexander Lafayette Campbell, the owner/operator of a grist mill located near the bridge.


The bridge is 35 feet long and 12 feet wide, so it is a relatively small, compared to some of the covered bridges that I've seen in Indiana. It has been restored twice since it's completion, with the most recent being in 1990. It is a quaint little spot that i like to visit when riding any of my bikes.
