#10 Trestle Builder Identified

You may remember the May 2006 fire that took the beautiful #10 Trestle from 216 feet high and 672 feet long to ashes. The Birmingham History Center renewed interest in this trestle over Newfound Creek in a recent article about the builder J. L.  Mitchell.  The Five Mile Creek Greenway District plans to replace this bridge as part of the Greenway Plan.  However, as of September 2014, the deed for this 16.7 mile rail still lies with CSX.
