Art, yes there was conflicting information in the articles. Tony and I discussed it and added them "as is" hoping more information would be discovered
Interesting math. The 1925 article says the bridge is 64 years old, meaning it was built in 1861 - I think the 1924 article's 1873 date is correct.
In my opinion, this looks like a Rezner (Ohio Bridge Co.?) but the image is a bit fuzzy. Any opinions?
Also, the last paragraph of the second page seems to suggest that the bridge was moved and reused over the Wabash River in Peru, Indiana. Any thoughts as to whether I'm reading his correctly and, if so, did the move occur?
