Old Pretty Prairie Road Bridge
Posted March 12, 2020, by Casey Clausen (normajean2755 [at] gmail [dot] com)

I grew up at 7501 Pretty Prairie Rd. My parents owned the property that Hog Point Bridge is located on. Both of my parents have recently passed away. Their wish was to have a photo of the original bridge before it collapsed engraved onto their tombstone. I have searched everywhere for a an image of the old bridge intact with no success. I was hoping you might be able to help me? Thank you.
