Historic Georgia Covered Bridge

Poole's Mill covered bridge is located in Poole's Mill park near Cummings, Georgia. It originally provided access across the creek to a grist mill. The mill has since burned down and the bridge is now a part of the 10 acre park in Forsyth county.

While visiting our daughter and her family in Atlanta, my husband and I took a drive to see the covered bridge. It was a beautiful autumn day and we enjoyed our drive in the country side and the visit to the park. The colors were beautiful on the trees and the still air enabled me to get some good photos of the reflections of the trees and bridge in the creek.

I hope you enjoy my photos of this historic bridge and the autumn scenes.

Poole's Mill - information on bridge

A sign located at the bridge gave some information on the history of the bridge. The current bridge was constructed in 1901 after the original bridge was washed away in 1899. The bridge is constructed in a "town lattice" design.

I found the lattice design to be particularly interesting in taken photographs. You will see below how I used the space between the slats to take some interesting photographs. On other photos I was able to catch the light shining through the slats.

scenic and historic

This bridge is one of Georgia's 16 historic covered bridges. Here you see the interesting way the light shines through the slats.



Read about American Covered Bridges

I have visited over 30 different covered bridges over the years. Each one is a bit different and has a story all of its own. This book will show you in photos and text some of North America's historic covered bridges.

autumn reflections

The lattice type pattern near the top of the bridge gives you the perfect view to look up or down the creek. It was a beautiful autumn day when we visited Poole's Mill and I was able to capture the autumn colors reflected in the creek as I shot my photo through the lattice work slats.

Just below the covered bridge the creek bed makes a turn and the water cascades down over the shoals. This photo shows the cascading water and the autumn foliage.

      Covered bridges are another piece of history we must treasure. Love them as much as the lighthouses...
