    Description

    The Euharlee Covered Bridge, also known as the Euharlee Creek Covered Bridge or rarely the Lowry Bridge, is a wooden Town lattice covered bridge crossing Euharlee Creek in Euharlee, Georgia, United States, a small town west of Cartersville. The bridge was built after the raging creek swept away an old Show more... bridge on the property of Daniel Lowry. The collapse of the bridge killed one man. A new bridge was built using some materials provided by Lowry.
    The bridge was built in 1886 by Horace King's son Washington King and Johnathan H. Burke. The bridge spans 138 feet. The lattice trusses consist of planks crisscrossing at 45- to 60-degree angles and are fastened with wooden pegs, or trunnels, at each intersection. Traffic finally stopped across the bridge in 1980 when a new two-lane bridge was built.
    The bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and is open to the public seven days a week.

    Beautiful old bridge. Fairly well maintained and closed to vehicular traffic so you can take your time inspecting and photographing this relic from the past.
