I have been trying to find out info about the swinging bridge in Bluff City,TN near what used to be Pratts Store. I am looking for the date of the original bridge? Date new bridge was completed? I have found out it was named in memory of Nellie Pratt. I hope someone can help.

become a fan of bluff city on facebook. they have some pictures of the old bridge. and guys seriously this aint 3rd grade dont be inmature dumbasses. this is a post about a piece of history. and whats a person from utah doing talking about our bridge. yes its in tennessee. i guess you have your own bridge, so go talk about it elsewhere. every damn post has to turn into a verbal smackdown for no reason. becky just needed some info on the bridge not a stupid fight. go start another thread if you want too. but this aint the place to be impolite and rude to others.

The bridge has been there at least since the 40s, Nellie Pratt, was my grandmother. My walked across the bridge going into Bluff City to school back in early 40s. I remember when some of the steps were missing. We used to jump off in river when I was younger. Grandmaw Pratt always wanted the bridge to be fixed. I think I have some very old pictures of it. Ps there was at one time a small dam (about 3to 4 feet high below the swinging bridge) right before the railroad bridge. My uncles & I spent many, many hours playing on and under the bridge. I'm very glad the bridge was named after my Grandmaw, NELLIE PRATT.
