What a gem!

What a historic gem outside of Greenville SC on the old route to Asheville NC. About 18 miles outside of town built in 1820.

While I have visited many times during the day and enjoyed this local beauty, I do NOT recommend going near dusk/after dark. Very haunted. May have trouble starting car, feel creepy vibes, etc. During the daytime, it is a popular place to take photos (peak times for this are weekends and school holidays), so you may need to wait a...

The only negative to this is I'm not sure this is in Greenville. We visited on a day we were in Landrum, which is also where my phone said where we were. Besides that, this is a great find if you are into history and nature- very pretty! And I think everyone that was there while we were there was... More

Wonderful old stone bridge set in the woods. A great picture spot. Lot of trees, some short trails and access to a small creek that runs through the arch in the bridge.

As a family we love to go here and walk the trails as well as view the beautiful Bridge. It is said to be haunted however we have never seen anything except beauty all around. If you have never been and love history it is definitely worth the drive.

I will drive miles for a historical site and it doesn't get much older than this. Beautiful gothic arch set in a massive stone bridge that use to be on the route to Asheville.

Careful, or you will drive right past it! The architecture was fascinating, almost Roman. Hard to imagine that it was on a road that went to Greenville.

I know you see pictures for this bridge but you must come see in person. It really is amazing. If you want to go down to the river level, some areas are steep so be careful. A lot of people were taking pictures there. Very photogenic spot.

Nice drive from Greenville. Wasn't sure what to expect, but so happy we drove out! Interesting bridge and nice place to take some pictures! We were the only people there for a while and it was very peaceful and relaxing.
