The Clisby Austin spring house sits glowing in the late afternoon sun. Rolling meadows and woodlands surround the pre-Civil War home located on 80+ acres in Northwest Georgia.

This little covered bridge sits on Clisby Austin Rd as it crosses Tanyard Creek. Located on each side of the bridge are small viewing platforms. Looking out the left side, you can see trains running the Western & Atlantic route from Chattanooga TN through Dalton GA. To the right, the Clisby Austin House and Tunnel Hill Civil War battlefield can be seen from the bridge.
