Thank you for the photos and history of this little country bridge. It brought back good memories. I remember that back in the 1950's - 1960's, this bridge was the closest way to get to my grandmother's house when we visited from Michigan. I remember being about 7-8 years old when we drove over it. It was rickity and would make noise. When I grew up, I visited my folks who lived back in the "holler". It was about 1966. I decided to use the bridge. I came up to it, it looked pretty bad, so I decided to test it by walking it before driving over it. It was pretty scary, the wooden boards were coming loose, but I drove over it anyway like everyone else did. Whew! My family, the Kelley's, called it the Hannawah bridge. Today, I was thinking about it and looked it up on the internet spelled Hannawah and I found it even with the wrong spelling! Thank You! It's sad to see that it's gone. Too bad the govt. didn't repair it before it fell into ruins, but I guess bridges are expensive to build and there's probably too many regulations today. No more wooden/steel bridges, just steel bridges.
I want it
