The Poinsett Bridge, named for Joel Roberts Poinsett, was built in 1820 as part of a road from Columbia, S.C. to Saluda Mountain. It is a stone bridge. It is no longer in use, but it is still largely intact. Today, it is part of the 120-acre Poinsett Bridge Heritage Preserve, where, in the future, a picnic area and walking trail will be built.
