Prickett Trail Bridge
The Prickett Trail Bridge was rescued from demolition by David and Candace Roberts in 2010. They purchased the bridge, restored and relocated over the same creek, less than one mile from it's original location. The bridge has been known by many in the Wellington community for it's beauty and nationally for it's news events of the past. Now it will remain in the community for many years to come. Built in 1932, this pony truss bridge is a beauty to visit and anyone is welcome to contact the new owners to visit at david-at-restorationhouse-dot-com.
