  • If you like historical sites this is your place. Your fingers can touch the life of builders of long ago. Go amaze the family here.. 
  • Careful, or you will drive right past it! The architecture was fascinating, almost Roman. Hard to imagine that it was on a road that went to Greenville. 
  • I know you see pictures for this bridge but you must come see in person. It really is amazing. If you want to go down to the river level, some areas are steep so be careful. A lot of people were takin...  more »

  • Me and my ole pals use to use this spot as a skateboarding are we called it spot it was the best. But then some kids came over and were being mean. We posed it on Instagram and tagged it as spot. Our friends got mad at us tho. We took it down and we were good friends again. We didn't skateboard but our friend Matthew Polin add him on Instagram @matt.polin. I couldn't do any tricks but i knew how to ride. My pal John could do a cool trick though. I forgot what he did but matt was so surprise. We slept at Johns house, twas pretty lit. We were listening to loud music. My favorite song we listened to was How You Remind Me by Nickle back. It was from 2001. HA HA lol jk we dont listen to that trash boi. Try Nasty Freestyle, or some hip song in that genre. I woke up laying next to matt we were snuggling on the couch. He said he woe up and came in and laid with me. It was cool i liked laying with him, because hes my best friend. My favorite NBA team is the Lakers, and my favorite college team is Duke. I never actually been to Poinsett Bridge just wanted to talk about a sleepover. ILY see me commenting on Edisto Island idk about what yet just hmu there. If ya dont know what hmu means it means hit me up. Peace Out.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
