People probably don't consider the damage water can do. This is one very good example of it. Hey Ron, thanx again!!

Posted September 16, 2018

Been two years since I last visited. Still looks like it's gonna take a drink.

Posted September 16, 2018

There is no longer any road to this bridge, gotta walk through a field. Nifty.

Posted September 16, 2018

Just got back from a visit. Wow, no repairing this guy. Looks like it will be washed away next big flood. Thanx to Ron Enlow for the tour!!!

I have never been in the casino, but I know lots who have and I'll find out if it's still there. Doubt it though.

Posted September 8, 2018

Bridge currently closed. A local told me that an I-beam had rusted through, and they were told that bridge would be repaired. Hope so!!

That is the Freedom Truss Bridge on the right.

Special thanks to Reann Poray of the Plainfield-Guilford Township Public Library for the access to the wonderful photos of the bridges in and around Plainfield!

Bridge is open, at least since Tom Hoffman, stated February 2018. Looking Good!!

Apparently this was fabricated from a storage unit from the city jail. (I do not know anything about the storage unit) It was fabricated by Graber Post Buildings from nearby Montgomery Indiana. I got my information from Kip Kelly of the Washington Parks Department.

Great News!!! And I love the float!

Posted July 16, 2018

Yes. I wasn't sure how it should be listed.
