What is now High Falls Park, was once an important crossing point for those who traveled from the Grove Oak area to Marshall county. With a growing population to the area and an increase for farm supplies, the need to access the Marshall county side quickly increased. Crossing Town Creek could be dangerous because of inconsistant water levels and much easier during the dry season. A covered bridge with rock pillars was constructed in 1923 to make crossing the swift currents of Town Creek easier. The covered bridge became victim to the weather and eventually was burnt down. A pedestrian bridge was built in 1998 which gives a special character to High Falls Park.
