Long Description:

Singer/Songwriter James Taylor grew up in Chapel Hill, NC. His home was about a half mile from Morgan Creek where he used to play as a child. Taylor used Morgan Creek in the song "Copperline."

To honor Taylor, the US Route 15-501 Bridge over Morgan Creek was named in his honor in 2003.

The coordinates for this waymark are the center of the bridge on the pedestrian side. Morgan Creek is right below.

To log your own visit to this markmark, take a picture of the bridge or sign or both, GPS in shot is nice, and post it with some brief comments. Logs without photos will be archived. Thanks.
