Little Red River Bridge
Posted June 19, 2012, by RBBrittain (rbbrittain [at] yahoo [dot] com)

This bridge is either misplaced (possibly the pre-lake Edgemont Bridge) or a duplicate of the Old Higden Bridge. The point marked here is the current Narrows Bridge (originally called the Higden Bridge); the Old Higden Bridge was north of that. Also note that the Old Higden Bridge did *NOT* carry AR 16 at the time; before the lake, AR 16 went thru the heart of the lake between present-day Shiloh and Eden Isle, crossing the Little Red River on the Miller Bridge, before crossing a fork of the river at Edgemont just west of the modern bridge. (The Lakefront Resort Bridge led to the north end of that bridge.)
