Stonebridge Meadows Bridge
Posted October 20, 2007, by Denise Ruffino (slvrngld [at] hotmail [dot] com)

I had heard about this bridge on the news and remember hearing that there might not be enough money to restore it. The pictures of it were fascinating and I thought how neat it would be to go and see this bridge. I did a little research on the internet but didn't come up with anything. On 6-16-07 I had spent the day hiking in Missouri and on my way home I decided as I crossed the bridge to Chester that I was going to turn and drive along the river. I noticed a street sign to my left with the name "stone bridge rd." or something similar to that and wondered if that could be the Stonebridge Meadows Bridge that was mentioned in that newscast. So I took a chance and turn down that road and a there it was.....a beautiful old stone bridge.

Here are some of the pictures I took that day.
