Smith-McGee Bridge, 1922, Hart County

Built as a privately-owned toll bridge spanning the Savannah River at the Georgia-South Carolina state line, the Smith-McGee Bridge was purchased by Georgia and South Carolina in 1926 and the toll removed. It’s a good example of the once-common camelback through truss design.

It was replaced with a new bridge in 1983. The eastern section of the bridge has been removed but it is open to pedestrians and is a popular spot for viewing the river.

Depot Street, Hartwell

Depot Street is a great example of revitalization and repurposing of historical structures. Colorful facades add to the appeal.

The street, a block off the courthouse square and highway traffic, is very pedestrian friendly.

There’s an artsy feel, as well, with the Hart County Community Theatre and High Cotton Music Hall (above)  adding a cultural vibe.
