Campbell's Covered Bridge

Photos and article by FastFred Ruddock, July 27, 2007

Cambell's Covered Bridge is loacted near the Cherokee Foothills Scenic Highway SC-11. I stop for a short visit at Campbell's Bridge enroute to the Pickens County ABATE Dice Run. Cambell's Bridge was constructed in 1909 and restored in 1964 and again in 1990. While the bridge is now closed to traffic you can still see tire tracks on the wood. The older stone Poinsett Bridge located within a few miles of Campbell Bridge.

The historical marker reads: 23 25 Cambell's Covered Bridge. This bridge, built in 1909 is the last extant covered bridge in S.C. Built by Charles Irwin Willis (1878-1966). it was named for Alexander Lafayette Campbell (1836-1920), who owned and operated a grist mill here for many years. Measuring 35 feet long and 12 feet wide. is an excellent example of a four-span Howe truss, featuring diagonal timebers and vertical iron rods.
