My family and I crossed this bridge many times when I was growing up. We would go out of our way to cross this bridge and to go through the Amish community on our way to my great-grandfathers land from Cincinnati. I haven't been out there since the late 80's, and I'm happy to see its still in use!

The noise from the loose boards is impressive, but the real show is watching them jump when a car crosses. I was also impressed by the red, white and blue painted arches from a past paint scheme since I visited on July 4th.
