Duck Creek Bridge

Apparently one county's trash is another county's treasure!

After being replaced by Henry County, this riveted Warren pony was disassembled and stored with hope that it might be reused.......likely in a park or on a trail. To my surprise, I found that it was going to Jefferson County.....and being put back into service on a county road.
