Lula Covered Bridge
I saw this covered bridge but it was on private property and the owners had signs up everywhere making their desires known that they did not want visitors. There was no room to park a car on the roadside so Sharon dropped me off, drove down the road, gave me a few minutes, then came back to pick me up. This was the best I could do without trespassing.
At 34 feet long in length, this bridge has the distinction of being the smallest covered bridge in Georgia and one of the smallest in the United States. This bridge can be seen from Antioch Road. Located on private property, a visit is not recommended.
It was built with Kingpost truss. It is over Grove Creek. This bridge was built in 1915 by W. M. Thomas. It was in service until 1969 when a nearby concrete bridge was built on the road's present alignment. In 1975 the bridge was taken apart and completely rebuilt on the banks before being lifted by a crane and placed back on its original foundations.
