On Hardin Valley Rd. in Knox Co., we'd seen signs advertising a covered bridge and I'd always wanted to visit it. So, yesterday after a good Easter lunch we decided to drive down the road and see the bridge.
Turns out Covered Bridge is just the name of an exclusive subdivision. They've built a covered bridge over a stream as the park entrance to the subdivision. It's a very expensive development outside the edge of civilization in Knoxville. A Google search reveals that there was no historic bridge there, the developers just decided to do something quaint and I fell for thinking that there was actually an historic bridge.
So, on the way home we were on a country road (that will very soon be stripmalls and more subdivisions leading to the Covered Bridge) and we passed this sign. Click to enlarge.
