Chickamauga Creek at Stovall Mill Covered BridgeBridge Description: This bridge was built in 1895 by Will Pardue. It is 36.8 feet long with queen-post truss. It has a parking area, picnic area and historic marker. It is at Chickamauga Creek. It was also known as Sautee-Nacoochee, Helen Bridge and Chickamauga.

Located in an area of White County, rich in history and legends of the Cherokee, Stovall Mill Bridge spans Chickamauga Creek. This is not to be confused with the more famous northwest Georgia Creek of the same name. An earlier covered bridge stood here but was washed away in the early 1890's. The bridge retains the name of the miller, Fred Stovall, Sr.; who operated the mill complex for many years.

The gristmill, sawmill and shingle mill were powered by a water turbine. All are gone now; only the remains of the dam are evident. - From "Covered Bridges of Georgia" by Thomas L. French, Jr. & Edward L. French.

It is said that this bridge is haunted. Standing on the bridge at night, you can hear the cries of unseen babies and the sounds of horse-drawn carriages.

Free parking and admission. This is a wonderful place to relax, have a picnic, cool off in the rushing water and enjoy the beautiful northeast Georgia mountains. Watch a video below of Stoval Mill covered Bridge, Chickamauga Creek, and more.
