Poinsett Bridge Heritage Preserve

This bridge, located in northern Greenville county, was built by Joel Poinsett in 1820. In addition to being one of the earliest settlers of Greenville, Poinsett also discovered the Poinsettia flower.

Supposedly the bridge is haunted by an old slave who was hung from it, a laborer who died building the bridge and by an indian tribe. Yet again, I witnessed no ghosts, but my wife's camera went dead as soon as she tried to photograph it. Hmmmm.....(Mine worked fine.)

Distance from downtown Greenville: 39 miles.

I really enjoy your blog about the Upstate. Your pictures and descriptions are very interesting!I also love the Google maps that pinpoint these locations.
My wife and I have just started a site about S.C this year. We have so much fun visiting places that make our state such a unique place to live. Keep up the good work!
