The Euharlee Covered Bridge, also known as the Euharlee Creek Covered Bridge or rarely the Lowry Bridge, is a wooden Town lattice covered bridge crossing Euharlee Creek in Euharlee, Georgia, United States, a small town west of Cartersville. The bridge was built after the raging creek swept away an old bridge on the property of Daniel Lowry. The collapse of the bridge killed one man. A new bridge was built using some materials provided by Lowry.
The bridge was built in 1886 by Horace King's son Washington King and Johnathan H. Burke. The bridge spans 138 feet. The lattice trusses consist of planks crisscrossing at 45- to 60-degree angles and are fastened with wooden pegs, or trunnels, at each intersection. Traffic finally stopped across the bridge in 1980 when a new two-lane bridge was built.

  • Awesome place to visit! My wife and I stopped by and really enjoyed it. There are a lot of things to do and see here. You can walk across the covered bridge, down by the river, or enjoy the old grist mill or the granary and commissary. There is even a library and a sports park within walking distance. Well worth the trip. Beautiful place!
  • This is such a nice area to visit. It's small but beautiful. Nice area to take family pictures plus there's a small park across the street.
