The Concord Covered Bridge, constructed with the Queenpost design, was built in 1872 by Daniell and Ruff, who owned land and mills nearby. It replaced a bridge believed to have been built in the 1840´s and destroyed during the Civil War. The Concord Covered Bridge has the distinction of being the only covered bridge still in use on a public highway in the metropolitan Atlanta area. The Girl Scouts of the Nickajack Association placed this marker in 1976 to commemorate the 200th birthday of the United States of America.
