Moline Swinging Bridge

My husband, daughter and I drove from Wichita Ks. to see this bridge. Was really cool to walk across it, knowing it has been there for over 100 years and all the history that has happened since then. Enjoyed the swinging bridge cafe also, great chicken fried steaks and some cool taxidermy displays for sale. What a quaint little town.
