Hoosier Land Park Campground was opened in 1965 by a gentleman named Mack Farmer. Sometime shortly thereafter, he acquired this bridge from Madison County and reconstructed it over Pipe Creek to join the 2 sides of his park together. The bridge has no altercations that I could find and is complete except for some missing lower lateral bracing. It received a new deck in 2011 as well as having the insides of the trusses painted bridge Red. The park has changed hands twice since Mr. Farmer started it, but I hope to eventually find more information about the original location of the bridge.
