Flint Hills Nature Trail - Neosho River Bridge
Posted January 27, 2018, by Nick Schmiedeler (nick [at] nickschmiedeler [dot] com)

This one easily accessible through Council Grove High School parking lot, very welcoming, plaque on north-facing exterior states American Bridge Company product though the year looks possibly 1914 or 1917, hard to read, unlike the other bridges on the Flint Hills rail-to-trail which in this area were all built 1930.
