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

Very similar design all of these Council Grove-area Flint Hills rail-to-trail bridges, all except for possibly Neosho R.B. in downtown were built 1930 according to all existing plaques on these bridges, and all except this one built by American Bridge Co. out of New York...this one is a Stupp Bros. product out of St. Louis. Beautiful area, would be a neat looooong hike to see all of these.
