Not sure what's so historic about it, nothing much on the internet, but seems like every time you see something on Childersburg, they have a picture of the overpass. I could have framed it differently, even cloned out some stuff, but this just struck me as right with all the junk, sort of like the town a little shabby here and there.

Maybe because Childersburg is the oldest recorded settlement in the U.S.? (Coosa settlement, 1540)

Yeah I've read that, supposedly De Soto came through when it was a Creek settlement. There's also a cave complex just east called De Soto Caverns. Not sure how that ties in with the overpass though. The town was also the site of an ammunition plant during WWII, that might have some significance with the RR.
