  • Beautiful bridge, couldn't believe people leave it trashed. DNR was out there cleaning it up. Thanks Guys
  • Special piece of Greenville County history in a beautiful natural setting.
  • Cool little place with lots of history. The area is kept up nice. The bridge is right off the road so it's not a hike to get to it, great place for pictures.
  • I just want to relate a story that appears in a 1976 booklet I still have about Greenville County History and the Dark Corner Community close to Glassy Mountain. It tells about a creature that appeared about the time of the first settlers and took up residence around Poinsette Bridge. I didn't take the tale seriously until I saw the movie "Mothman Prohecy" decades later and the similarities were downright creepy. The huge flying creature had a red eye and a beaklike head. It killed, on a methodical basis, the three members of the Callahan Family after killing their dog and cow. Some mountain people came to take the orphaned boy to their home and the creature flew down and killed the little boy. It is an important oft related oral history in the Dark Corner. Or at least it was until Glassy Mountain was turned into a high-end golf community.
  • Great historical landmark. Must see!!
