    This bridge is twelve feet wide and 250 feet long over Crooked Creek. It is one of the longest bridges in the old S9uth. Originally built in 1904, repaired in 1923 and restored in 1976. The bridge is listed on the National Register of Historical Places. An old mill with waterwheel is located in the adjacent picnic area.

    Now get out there and get it.

    thats a good one. Just down the road and I have tomorrow off. :clap

    no dawn raid this time but you will have to get up early to beat me. Your only saving grace is this damn dialup we have out here. It will take me two and a half hours to get it all uploaded.

    TAG

    That place has been around for years. Was a grocery store when I first saw it. Dont have the slightest what Houtson's is/was. The propelers turn when it is running right.

    I do know where that is, and if I hadn't had my wisdom teeth removed 4 hours ago I'd go get it.

    I know where that is too. I can't believe so many folks know this location.
