The bridge is said to be named after a Banks County woman who sat on her porch selling jars of moonshine hidden under her skirt.
It is a single-span modified Kingpost truss 34' located southeast of the town of Lula over Grove Creek near an abandoned golf course off Antioch Road.
Since the bridge is on private property, the bridge can be photographed from the road. There are lots of No Trespassing Signs and the area had become very overgrown the last time I saw it.
It is the shortest historic as well as the only covered bridge remaining in Georgia with a Kingpost truss. The bridge was originally built in 1915 and was relocated to its present site from it original location over the same creek about one mile away.
The bridge was in service until 1969 when it was bypassed by nearby concrete bridge built on the road’s present alignment. In 1975 the bridge was taken apart and completely rebuilt on the banks before being lifted by a crane and placed back on its original foundations in 1976. The truss is a two-panel kingpost over a half height M support and has three steel tension rods, one in the center and one outside each leg of the M support.
