This iron truss bridge was used by thousands of Birmingham area residents in the early 1900s while visiting Tapawingo Springs, once a popular swimming spot and tourist location in northeast Jefferson County.

The bridge was originally located across Turkey Creek near Pinson on Blountsville Road. Re-located to Tanner State Park by Jefferson County in 1975, it now crosses Mill (Cooley) Creek.
