Me and some cousins just went out to the old dixie bridge sept 1st 2013 went swimmin & fishin. Jumped off the bridge a few times. Theres 3-4 houses on the back side now. Still fun.
Visited this very unique bridge on Wednesday, July 9, 2008. This bridge is in the middle of nowhere and goes nowhere. Bridge needs some work; found large holes in the decking. Area used for fishing. Bridge photographed from several angles.
I LEARNED TO SWIM BY BEING THROWN OFF THIS BRIDGE, IN THE EARLY FIFTIES, BY TWO OF MY BROTHERS, MARLIN , AND DAVID AND FRIENDS, (IT TOOK5), LOTS OF MEMORIES HERE, WE FARMED JUST WEST OF THE BRIDGE ON LAND THAT JOINED LOCUST CREEK,THERE WERE TWO FAMLIES LIVED ACROSS THE BRIDGE ON NEWTON ISLAND THE RILEY IRWIN FAMILY,JUST BELOW THIS BRIDGE ONE OF THE LARGEST BAPTISINGS WAS HELD HERE IN 1953 , BY REV BILLY KING , AND GW ENDICOTTS FATHER ,
I love this old bridge, I guess I should, I've jumped, fished, and threw rocks off it a hundred times.
