Osage River Bridge at Hubers Landing
Posted January 4, 2009, by Paul Boudreau (paboudreau [at] mchsi [dot] com)

Each of the three undated photographs have written on the back "Osage River Bridge, Hubers Landing." The reference to Hubers Landing is to the privately operated ferry operation that the bridge no doubt put out of operation. The old brick Hubers farmhouse still overlooks the location of the modern twin spans. I believe it is now run as a B&B. Sadly, the plaque in the third photograph is unreadable.
