Bridges of Union County

July 01, 2013  •  Leave a Comment

After a long week, Marlene and I decided it was a good day for a drive. Dodging raindrops, put the top down on the Mustang and headed out. First stop was Bigelow Bridge on Ax Handle Rd. Built by Reuben Partridge and named for Eliphas Bigelow, son of Russell Bigelow.












I love covered bridges and had no idea there was one so close to home. Reminded me of Covered Bridge Pizza- I went there as a kid. The dining area is half of a carefully moved and reconstructed covered bridge.




Next it was time for a late lunch at The Smiling Daisy. Talking with Dale was great- I like his way of thinking. :) Great food!! Marlene had a giant catfish sandwich served on bread that was still warm from the oven. I had zucchini parmesan, fresh from Dale's own garden.



Dale told us about 3 more bridges nearby and gave us directions- which Marlene had to remember, not that it was complicated.  Following a long country detour, we found Spain Creek bridge on Inskeep-Cratty Rd., near Chuckery. Aren't those some great names?
Just around the corner from there-
Then a few lucky guesses later-



Last stop was Guy Cemetery

- Earliest birth we could read:
Geo. Fullington August 18, 1769

 Revolutionary War veteran 

Looking forward to my next adventure...
