Stately Abandoned Bridge Abutment
You don’t see a lot of ashlar stone bridge abutments around here…the railroads generally went for function, not form. But this jewel on an abandoned, probably Southern, line at 36.37039, -83.00850 used to cross the Holston River between Rogersville and Bulls Gap.
You can just see my buddy standing there. He’s about 5’11”, which makes the abutment roughly 40′ high. There are two piers of the bridge remaining.
When the bridge was extant, it was most likely about 1,000′ long. Quite a piece of work.
