Rossville Railroad Bridge
Posted October 3, 2009, by Tom Dailey (daileyservices [at] qwest [dot] net)

You know you're OLD when you remember going THROUGH this bridge on the way to the ROSSVILLE train station. Sometimes, we'd come into WILLARD, which is across the river (KAW RIVER BRIDGE), but this bridge still stands as silent sentinel,to times gone by and small bottles of "Grape-ette" soda pop from a square cooler. Wave as you drive by.
