#6 bridge on the list...the Harra.
But before I go any further I want to post a link to the web site where I acquired the information about these historical bridges.
Thanks for the help Tom.
This bridge has been around since 1878 or 1875 or 1871 depending on where you get your information.
It's 95' long and stands over the South Branch of Wolf Creek. It's located northwest of Watertown, Ohio on TR 172 on the north side of the road. The bridge was originally built at a cost of $617.50. The timbers in the bridge are yellow poplar. It once had a slate roof. Although bypassed in 1981, it has been renovated in recent years. The structure rests on cut stone abutments that were quarried on site, then the Herman Harra Farm.
More ghosts from the past......
And one from 2009.....
Don't know why I'm lost all the time...
Everyone is always telling me where to go.
