Haralson Mill Covered Wooden Bridge
- Admission Fee: $0.00
Built in 1997, the covered wooden bridge replaces a historic ford, which crossed Haralson Mill Road, formerly an unimproved dirt road in North Rockdale County. This bridge is the first of its kind to be built in Georgia since the 1890s. The bridge is immediately north of the Haralson Mill Historic District. The setting is comprised of the Haralson Mill House, a general store, the old mill site, and a blacksmith shop.
In selecting the type of bridge, Rockdale County considered the importance of historic preservation of the area, as well as cost. The wooden bridge was chosen instead of the conventional concrete and steel structures commonly seen throughout the state because of its historical significance. To retain the required attributes of the area, bridge designs from the early 1800s were considered.
