Fall Scenes along the Little Harpeth River
See the remnants of the broken bridge in the second photo. There used to be a gate on this side of the river. There was an old farm on the other side. And I remember a day in the 80s when I walked up to this gate with my dogs and saw an electricity cut-off notice pinned to the gate. As Nathaniel Hawthorne once wrote- "In this Great Republic of ours, someone is always at the drowning point". And that was the end of the farm. And then came the McMansions.
