Indian Creek Bridge
Posted September 21, 2009, by Jeannette (ladybikr500 [at] wmconnect [dot] com)

I am proud to say that this bridge was built by my Great-Grandfather. I am planning a trip to visit each bridge that was constructed by him. I only found this information by accident looking on the net. Hope I can find more bridges that he built regardless if they are considered Historic or not.
