This bridge replaced an earlier Covered Bridge that was said to be the longest one in Indiana at 1000 feet and was a Howe truss type. Ice gorges in 1912 severly damaged the bridge but it was repaired. The following March 1913, the worst flooding on record unindated the Midwest causing catastrophic flooding that finally washed away most of the covered bridge. Cass County immediately took to build a replacement structure made of concrete with a arch designed by noted Purdue University alum Daniel Luten, who was responsible for many of the bridges locally that were built after the great flood. It was a single lane structure connecting the community of Georgetown with the Southside of the Wabash River for connections to Clymers and Burrows. This site had the former Wabash and Erie Canal bed running through Georgetown, thus the Georgetown Towpath Ranch Road that met the bridge at it's Northen terminus. I can remember crossing this bridge during ice gorges in the late 70's, and it was scary to think the bridge could go at any moment, but it did hold for a few years more before Cass County commisioned a new bridge to be built just Downstream to connect with the Lockport Road. The old Concrete Bridge was soon demolished after completion of the new bridge and only remnants of it's concrete abutments remain on either shore. Georgetown today is a sleepy country community that sees the occasional fisherman casting a line off of the new bridge and farmers making their way across to tend to their fields. Some use the bridge for a shortcut between West and NorthWest Cass County to access Delphi, and Lafayette. The new bridge has an extremely wide deck that local grafiti artist love to paint.
