This bridge was featured in the 1973 movie "Dillinger" along with a house located in nearby Dougherty.

This is our bridge! We are in the process of restoring it. All the missing guardrails have been replaced and cleaned up the creek area. Next we have to replace bridge timbers.

We plan on renting for small weddings, wedding photos, senior photos, etc.
