The Hauntings at Poole’s Mill Covered Bridge
Poole’s Mill Covered Bridge is a fun destination for many families, friends, and sweethearts in the warm months of the year in Georgia. This park is away from the beaten path on some winding back roads in Forsyth County, not too far from the Cherokee County line, off of Highway 369. There is a nice playground, swings, picnic tables here and there, plus a pavilion (with decent restrooms) for family get-togethers. However, those amenities are not the reason that people are drawn to this location. Beyond the covered bridge that spans across Settendown Creek, there is a series of shallow pools and water falls that meander down a rocky water scape that beckon children, adults, and even dogs to splash and play with delight. This is a natural water park that doesn’t require hefty fees, is laid back, and it even has a haunted history!

That name just doesn’t seem to fit the white steepled church nestled against vivid blue skies on a sunny spring day, especially after driving up the small, winding back road to it, with the picturesque backdrop of trees, flowers, and rolling hills. A monument adorns the front entrance with these words:
