Located 1/2 mile east is the site of a wooden railroad trestle built for the Nashville & Northwestern Railroad during the Civil War. The 12th and 13th U.S. Colored Infantry constructed the trestle and 1305 feet of earthworks. They built another trestle two miles east of this location on Hurricane Creek along with a blockhouse to protect the railroad from Confederate raiders.
