So.Fork.Beargrass Creek Bridge
Posted December 25, 2015, by James McCray (jamesinslocomb [at] yahoo [dot] com)

This bridge is older than the NBI date it gives. It was built in the 20's and the linked pic shows the bridge in its original state. The NBI gives the rehab date and when one looks underneath the bridge one can see the original arch structure. http://digital.library.louisville.edu/cdm/singleitem/collect...
