Red Oak Creek Covered Bridge


This covered bridge is still a functional bridge for traffic.  It was built in 1840's by a freed slave and bridge builder Horace King (1807-1885) and it is the oldest and longest wooden bridge in the state of Georgia.  We drove through it and it was sturdy even though there was grass growing within the rails and some large nails were loose in several wooden planks.  It is located in Meriwether County, Georgia.
