Along a Country Steeple: Thursday Doors

Note to reader: Due to a glitch in my ongoing search for knowledge, a previous post on Mooresville, Alabama published without captions. An updated Along a Country Street: Thursday Doors with captions adds details on this historical community.

Along a Country River: Thursday Doors

Old Railroad Bridge is the oldest river bridge in Alabama.

The original toll bridge, spanning the Tennessee River in the Shoals, opened in 1840, and by 1858 operated as a double decker; trains using the upper deck while the lower deck continued as a toll bridge. Rebuilt again after the American Civil War, it operated until 1939; replaced by the O’Neal Bridge (shown left in photo).

The 1560-foot lower deck was restored by the Old Railroad Bridge Company as a walking trail using the original piers. The bridge is part of the Tennessee Valley Authority Muscle Shoals Trails Complex.

For perspective, the tiny dot at the end of the bridge is a person.
