The Kymulga Covered Bridge is a pedestrian bridge spanning the Talladega Creek. The bridge was built in 1861. It is made of wood and corrugated sheet metal, and is 105 feet long.
Next door to the Kymulga Bridge is the Kymulga Mill which was built in 1861, three years after the bridge. It is now a working electric powered grist mill with an old country store.

This swing beside a dirt path in the woods reminds me that we often need a quiet place where we can think, play, relax, and just be by ourselves for awhile.
It reminds me of a Ralph Carmichael song that I learned to love years ago . . .
There is a quiet place
far from the rapid pace
where God can soothe my troubled mind.
Sheltered by tree and flower
there in my quiet hour with him
my cares are left behind.
Whether a garden small,
or on a mountain tall
new strength and courage there I find,
and then from that quiet place
I go prepared to face a new day
with love for all mankind
Swing beside quiet path
