Breeden's Bridge is an unusual bridge with an unusual story. The bridge is a mixmatched bridge. It consists of two different type of truss spans, which were made in different years, and also, both spans originated from two different locations. The spans were relocated to their present location in 1959. The Parker Truss span is 400' long and was constructed in 1900. The Pratt Truss span was constructed in 1883 and is reported to be the oldest of its type in Indiana. The bridge sits in O'Bannon Woods State Park about three miles south of Leavenworth, IN on an old logging road just off to the east of IN HWY 62. The future of this bridge is bright. It is scheduled to be rehabilitated into a pedestrian bridge in the near future.
