Hoosier Manufacturing Bridge

Map 

Description 

This bridge was mentioned in the 50th Anniversary Booklet of the Pan American Bridge Company, but little more is known. The Hoosier Manufacturing Company was the originator of the iconic "Hoosier Kitchen Cabinet". This bridge was built in 1919 and connected their buildings across South 14th Street. It was likely removed sometime after the company closed in 1942. I hope to find a photo at the historical society.
