I have always been fascinated with old bridges, and have always loved Rockville, IN and the covered bridge festival. One day while surfing the web, I came across this website and the rest is history. I have just recently registered as an editor on this site, and feel great pride in my first update, the Creek Road Bridge in Boone County, IN. While an editor, I feel I still have a lot to learn.
Discovered Via Geocaching.com that this bridge has been removed from the location and placed on the shore some distance away.
I 1000% agree with the notice on the bridge in picture 4. People that mutilate and vandalize these historic treasures should be Prosecuted to the full extent of the law!!!
Drove to see it today, and yes I can proudly say, a 2000 Ford Mustang goes through it just fine.
Was hiking on the White Water Greenway from Potters Bridge Park to SR 19 Bridge, and I counted I think at least 3 piers. Could have been two as they are tucked back in the overhanging trees of the white River.
Was at this bridge a little while ago, and got here via a different website. Trying my hand with geocaching and this bridge has a cache hidden near it. It took a little bit of searching for the cache.
A big thumbs up to those people dedicated to saving the old bridges of just not Indiana but all over this great nation. This trail was recently in the news where it reported a 70 year old Scout master who was on the trail with two of his scouts got attacked and killed. My prayers go out to his family.
The Zionsville Rail Trail has a picnic area on top of this bridge. It is the Southern Terminus of the trail at the moment, not sure if they plan to extend the trail beyond or not.
Thank you for the correction James.
:-(( Saw the last pic 16 of 16 and had to shed a tear. Went to Vincennes 90 91 and there were several nights my friends and I would across the bridge into Illinois. To think the railroad is replacing it makes me very sad.
Driving to and from this bridge made me think I was back in the swamplands. Both sides of the gravel road had standing water, and there was a spot where the road was practically washed out. My car needs a good washing. But all in all, this is a nice little bridge.
Drove to Jackson County today, and was interesting to see just how much work has been done to this old Girl. Will have to keep updated on her, and go back when she is fully restored.
Found some interesting information about this bridge.
Could this be the first historical instance when an ugly concrete bridge was replaced by a beautiful covered bridge?!?
I wish I had a decent digital camera because I would have updated the pictures of this bridge. I was there today, and while signs are still in place, the bridge is beautifully painted, and just a gem to witness. I scrolled down to see other comments, and one of them answered a question I had about what looked like a prior bridge abutment (or however it's spelled LOL)
Had a glorious day free from work, so I decided to grab the GPS and go Bridge Hunting. Found this wondrously thrilling bridge and decided that I'm just not brave enough to cross it. Did walk to the first platform though. Gorgeous view from way up there.
Visited this Jewel today as I had family event today in Lafayette. Had time to kill so I plugged in the GPS and it took me right to this bridge. Took a nice pic of the Frozen Wabash River with my phone. Shame I don't have a data cord for the phone to upload the pic to the site.
