Little South Fork Cumberland River Bridge
Posted December 29, 2015, by Sandra Gregory (rottie [at] windstream [dot] net)

1947 the year the bridge was built. Do you know where a person might be able to find any pictures the year the bridge was built? and before the bridge was built, how did the people of the Slavans community and else where cross the river to go to Monticello?

My father grew up on the Little South Fork River, not to far from the Bridge on the McCreary County side. He left in the 60's to Indiana, there he lived for 48 years, retired and came back to his old home place on the little south fork river of 125 acres, to live out the rest of his life. There he and my mother built their home, with the back deck over looking the river. As a child visiting my grandparent during the summer months, I have a lot of great memories on the little south fork river, where my grandparents also lived within throwing a rock distance from the river.

Picture taken right behind my parents home.
