Turman Creek IN 154 Bridge
Posted May 9, 2006, by Brent Mitchell (mitch3_8 [at] yahoo [dot] com)

My name is Brent Mitchell, I am posting this comment on behalf of a friend of mine whos father owns some land on turman creek and it happens to be right next to this bridge, although i was only 2 when it got its last "face lift" the bridge still looks as strong as ever. The reason I am posting this is because, my friends father is very interested in the history of Turman Creek and the Native Americans that once lived there. If any one has any information on this it would be very helpful to me in this research that i am doing. Thank you.....
