Lake Lure Flowering Bridge: A gateway to somewhere beautiful


Author(s):
Abstract:
Between Chimney Rock and Lake Lure in western Rutherford County, scenic highways merge to cross the Broad River. The Lake Lure Flowering Bridge, once a bustling thoroughfare, is home to an eclectic variety of flowers and plants that pays homage to western North Carolina’s natural flora. This historic bridge built in 1925 was reclassified as a pedestrian walkway in 2011 when a new bridge was opened to traffic.
