Old Dunham Bridge – Greenville, South Carolina

Built in 1929, the Old Dunham Bridge is a steel truss bridge which stretches over the Saluda River in Greenville County. It is located near present-day SC 81 and was once along the main route from Downtown Greenville to Anderson. This bridge was still being used into the late 1990s.

The bridge is one of the last remaining steel truss bridges in the state that still has its complete structure intact. Now it can be accessed by the adjacent Dolly Cooper Park on the Powdersville side of the Saluda or the Greenville side by walking or riding a bike.

Photographer Joseph Baker writes, “During my teenage years I had the pleasure of driving over it, and I remember that is was so narrow only one car could cross at a time. But there was always that daredevil who just couldn’t be patient.”
