Here's an excerpt from a book written in 1904 by Hamilton Busbey called " The Trotting and the Pacing Horse in America". This excerpt discusses "Star Pointer" one of the most famous horses to ever come out of Middle Tennessee and touches on some of the roots of the Walking Horse as related to the Standardbred in that area.

I don't recall this stable either, or the folks connected with it. That was a mighty impressive facility for those days.

The Old Stone Bridge at Fayetteville



You may wonder why I'm posting these photos of an old bridge on a TWH history thread. I'm doing so because of the bridge's strategic location in the middle of Walking Horse country and also because if you use a little imagination, you may be able to envision the many early walking horses and their war horse forefathers crossing this bridge in the early morning light.



The bridge was built in 1861 at a length of 450 feet over the Elk River. It was reportedly saved from destruction in the Civil War because of it's beauty.





Unfortunately, the bridge was lost in 1969 due to flooding.



As a memorial, a new smaller replica of the bridge was built in 2002 in the Stone Bridge Memorial Park near the site of the old bridge. Some of the original stones from the old bridge were used in the replica.
