Old Rosemary Bridge

These are the remains of a former bridge that once linked the Hinds County side of Rosemary Road to the Rankin County side. The current bridge is a one-lane ancient relic of a time when cars where big behemoths that they needed their own tracks on the bridge… this leaves me to believe that the bridge that presided the present Rosemary bridge was only strong enough for a horse and carriage. There are a few relics of the old bridge including old pilings, the remains of the railing in the water behind it… and some standing railing just off to the back. It is
surprisingly beautiful to the otherwise pristine Pearl River.
