Old Dunham Bridge – Greenville, South Carolina
South Carolina | SC Picture Project | Greenville County Photos | Old Dunham Bridge
Built in 1929, the Old Dunham Bridge is a steel truss bridge which stretches over the Saluda River in Greenville County. It is located on SC 81/Anderson Road, which was once 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.
SCIWAY thanks Joseph Baker of Summerville for sending in this photo, taken in 2008. Joseph 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.”
