Biographical or historical data
The company was formed by an act of the General Assembly dated March 1819. On March 11, 1820, a survey was conducted approving the project to construct a bridge across the James River at Cartersville. An act authorizing the subscription of stock was passed March 3, 1821, and the bridge was completed in November 1822. The bridge was destroyed by flood in September 1827. It was then rebuilt. Rebuilding was also started in 1842.
