Gowensville, SC – Campbell Covered Bridge

Gowensville is in Greenville County.  There is no town, just a few buildings and homes.  Highway 11 runs through the area.

 Campbell’s Covered Bridge is the last remaining covered bridge in South Carolina.

This bridge, built in 1909, is the last extant covered bridge in S.C. Built by Charles Irwin Willis (1878-1966), it was named for Alexander Lafayette Campbell (1836-1920), who owned and operated a grist mill here for many years. Measuring 35 feet long and 12 feet wide, it is an excellent example of a four-span Howe truss, featuring diagonal timbers and vertical iron rods
