Arkansas River Bridge
Posted September 11, 2015, by Gary Cauble (gary [at] gcauble [dot] com)

Gary and Sheri Cauble were 2 years old at the dedication of this bridge. It was in the Mt. Hope Clarion. We will be taking a picture on the new plaque this year 61 years later on the new bridge... I will find the photo and post it soon...
