Branch Rush Creek Bridge
Posted June 19, 2009, by Wes Kinsler (wkinsler [at] wkinsler [dot] com)

Wow! I am so glad to see someone took some pictures of this bridge. Growing up, I spent my summers in La Rue, with my Aunt and Uncle, and in New Bloomington, with my grandmother. My Uncle used to take me on "car rides" out in the country around La Rue, and I knew where all the old truss bridges were.
