Johnson Covered Bridge 47-27-04
Posted February 19, 2014, by K. A. Erickson

What Jack Schmidt is doing is adding all the listings from the Dale J Travis Covered Bridge website that have not yet been added to the Bridgehunter website.

This bridge was designed by a man facing Lou Gehrig's disease, Everette Bruce Johnson. Mr. Johnson wanted to construct a bridge over a draw on his property before he became too stricken. Friends, family, and neighbours pitched in. He got to see his dream realized before he passed away.

It was written up as a human interest piece in a local paper but the links appear to not have survived.
