About Me 

Email: spansaver [at] hotmail [dot] com

I have been interested in historic bridges.....and mills.....and round barns.......cemeteries......and really just about anything else old and interesting. I have tried to become more aware of the cities and towns I pass through while searching for bridges, and I have discovered a lot of unique things in the process. I have recently taken more of an interest in county court houses as well.

Your right Bill.....was 1986 indeed! A small gaffe on my part!

Nice building!....but i want to know more about that Kingpost pony bridge in front of it!!

Posted July 22, 2010

This bridge was destroyed by arson in 1993

This bridge has reportedly been in storage for many years.

Old Breweries
Posted July 14, 2010

This is a category that popped into my head today. I used to collect beer cans as a kid and even visited many neat old breweries in Wisconsin one year. The old Chief Oshkosh Brewery was my favorite! That is in J.R.s neck of the woods, maybe he has some input on this....

Just to expand on what J.P. has mentioned here. Not only was Col. Harland Sanders from Henryville, but so was his nephew Lee Cummings. The two initially worked together to develop the Kentucky Fried Chicken chain of restaurants. After the chain was sold, Lee Cummings worked to develop his own recipe.....which would go on to be known as the "Famous Recipe". So the two largest fried chicken chains in the land owe their origins to this small Indiana (yes...Indiana) town!

I dabbled in old mills more when I was younger.....and this was one of my favorites. A real beauty!
