Georgia State Parks, getting outside, nature art, nature photography, photography, rural georgia landscapes, Watson Mill Bridge
Left for work and hour early the other day so I could visit this place….Watson Mill Bridge is a Georgia State Park located in Madison County. The water was calm and thus made beautiful reflections.
“One of the most picturesque state parks in Georgia, Watson Mill Bridge contains the longest covered bridge in the state, spanning 229 feet across the South Fork River. Built in 1885 by Washington (W.W.) King, son of freed slave and famous covered-bridge builder Horace King, the bridge is supported by a town lattice truss system held firmly together with wooden pins. At one time, Georgia had more than 200 covered bridges; today, less than 20 remain.”
