Pooles Mill Bridge

7725 Poole'S Mill Road, Ballground, GA 30107, Cumming, Georgia 30107 USA

“An historic century-old wooden covered bridge”

The original construction of this bridge began with a contractor who drilled all the holes in the lattice members in the wrong place. After fitting up the pieces he realized they were in the wrong place and abandoned the project. Work was finished by Bud Gentry, but it required drilling new holes in the old members. You can still see the misplaced holes today. Even the treads of the bridge are members that could not be used because of the misplaced holes. Treads with holes side-by-side were to have been used in the chords, while those with diagonally offset holes would have been lattice members.
