Settles Bridge History

Settles Bridge Elementary – Settles Bridge Elementary opened in 1999 to house the overcrowding of 580 students at Daves Creek, Mashburn and Big Creek elementary schools. Ms. Mary Harwell was the school’s first principal. The school is named after an historic bridge, Settles Bridge, which was used to cross the Chattahoochee River. The bridge was built in 1869 and was constructed of iron and wood truss.
 
Settles Bridge is proud of its historical connections and strives to celebrate its past while leading our students into a bright future!
