Covered Bridge in Elizabethton

A view of the first bridge across the Doe River in Elizabethton from the Elk Avenue Bridge (the second bridge across the Doe), which leads to the monument in the town square. As much damage as this river has done in the Elizabethton area, I'm real suprised that it is still standing and actively used after over 100 years. With the city park on the left side, this bridge and spillway make an ideal setting for the annual Bridge Festival. This festival has been on the same weekend as our convention several times. Note the pristine condition of the little waterfall. It changes in later photos of this same area after one of the floods.
