Greenville County, SC, February 16, 2010 - Visitors to the newly created park at Campbell's Covered Bridge that will open this spring might enjoy the romantic story as to its purpose - to provide privacy for courting couples to pull their horse and buggy inside for a kiss.

Picnic areas, trails, markers, a parking lot and cabin and grist mill foundations are part of a $445,000 project to open what historians call the only remaining covered bridge in the state to the public, according to Gene Smith, executive director of the Greenville County Recreation District.
