A leafy, peaceful site at the foot of an historic trestle-style river crossing, the Rogers Bridge property was as attractive to developers as it was to nature-lovers seeking a quiet spot on the Chattahoochee River. Farmed for nearly 300 years by the Rogers family, the site was slated for a 32-home development when The Trust for Public Land stepped up to conserve it. Now permanently protected as part of the National Park Service’s Chattahoochee River National Recreation Area, Rogers Bridge connects a network of hiking and biking trails that serves more than 3 million visitors each year.
