Description 

Jordon Cemetery was erected in 1802 by R.C. Booher. This bridge leads into the cemetery from Rt. 994. EBT RR reached out past this area by 1874, so the bridge could date back that far or be a replacement to a previosu bridge. You can access the cemetery from the south side connecting to Rt. 475, but it is a further distance and more likely folks travelled to the cemetery from Rt. 994.
