Shutterbug Sunday: Furnas Mill Bridge

I discovered the Furnas Mill Bridge on historicbridges.org while researching for an article I am currently writing. The Furnas Mill Bridge dates from c.1880 and is a Pratt Through Truss. I realized this bridge was secluded on a back road in the Atterbury Fish and Wildlife Area and even better, it wasn’t too far off a road I regularly travel. So, two weeks ago, I took a little adventure to explore the Furnas Mill Bridge and was happy to grab some amazing images of this spectacularly restored historic bridge.
