This old train trestle is part of the old Wilmington and Manchester Railroad line which connected towns like Mullins, Marion, Nichols, and numerous other farming communities along the way.

The trestle crosses the Little Pee Dee River between Mullins and Nichols at an old swimming hole. Summer after summer, before swimming pools scattered the neighborhoods of today, local kids would swing from ropes and dive from the sides of the old trestle into the Little Pee Dee River after a long day in the tobacco fields.

George Smith, who took this picture and provided the historical information, writes, “I can remember my dad telling me stories of how they would go to the trestle to swim, and I can also remember the first time I went to the old trestle to swim. In this day in time those days have almost long been forgotten.”
