At Birch's Bridge (very near this bridge) the second William Byrd and his party crossed the river, in September, 1733, on their way to inspect Byrd's land holdings in North Carolina. Byrd wrote an account of this trip which he called "A Journey to the Land of Eden." On his return, he "laid the foundation" of Richmond and Petersburg.
