Mohawk Station









This is old Mohawk station, now derelict.  The line in front is booted off.   Here’s a look inside what may have been the ticket office/waiting room:








About 2,000 feet to the east of this station is the contemporary Lick Creek Bridge, a truss/deck girder combo.








This is looking west, back toward Mohawk.  On November 8, 1861, Union sympathizers burned the bridge that was here (the bridges were made of timber then).  It was part of a effort by the “Bridge Burners” to take down the 9 bridges between Bristol and Bridgeport AL.  They succeeded, but many paid the ultimate price.
The date plates on this bridge have been chiseled off…thanks, vandals.

      Thank you for your comment, but we’ve noticed that most of these old buildings have long been ransacked.
