I remember living with my Great Grandfather Thomas Conway off and on for years with my siblings and parents, until we finally moved to St. Louis. Going to take swiming lessons with my brother and sitting on the front porch and all of us kids would take turns at shaking the mayo jar to make butter for dinner. Grandpa Conway, house was the first house on the right on hwy. 19 going into town. I will always remember crossing the bridge and turning right into the front yard. Now it is a canoe rental place. If I had known it was for sale I would have perchased it just the way it stood. It still brings back very fond memories.
This is a wonderful bridge that I have the opportunity to walk over everytime I am visiting my sister in Eminence Missouri. I love, as well as my niece Breanna, her friends and son Kyle, walking to the Fast Stop for hot chocolate on a crisp fall or spring morning and stopping on the bridge to look up and down the river. The view is peaceful.
