There are not a lot of covered bridges left anymore, but one remains and it has been sitting over Nickajack Creek since 1872. It is a one lane bridge and it the most traveled covered bridge in Georgia (it is on quite a busy road). You have to take turns going through it (one side goes, then the other side). I like that it has been left and still remains a one lane bridge.
Remants from Ruff's Mill (the scene of a Civil War battle) as well as ruins of the dam and parts of the old grist mill is still nearby. Also Miller's house is right next to the bridge and still serves as a residence (I have been informed by some friends that it is supposedly haunted, but
The bridge has somewhat of a local legend. The legend of the waterhead babies at the covered bridge is to park your car on the bridge, leave a snickers bar on top of the car, turn off the lights and wait until you hear the scurrying of children's feet which means the waterhead babies are coming - I guess they like Snicker's bars because supposedly it will be gone once you get out to look back at the roof of your car. I think the legend is that the snicker-eating goblins are actually ghost of some children that drowned in the creek.
If you are nearby, make sure you have a Snicker's bar with you. Let me know if you try it (I'm too much of a chicken)
