Curtis Creek Bridge
Posted November 30, 2008, by Carol Walker (luckywalker16 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

My Great-Grandfather was Edward Menke of Menke Stone & Lime Company. It was such a treat for me to be able to actually see pictures of the Curtis Creek Bridge! I hope to some day visit and see it in person.
