This bridge is a one of a kind very rich in history and legend. The view from surrounding high grounds shows a picture worth painting. Many stories have been published over the years about the construction and possible tragedy. well worth a look!

Interesting history of this old train trestle bridge. Legend of two men and a donkey being swallowed up in the concrete during construction persists.

The Big Four bridge is one of the most unique attractions I have ever seen. It is a railroad bridge rich in history. Fun to see, especially if you get to watch a train cross it.

Stopped by to try to take pictures of the bridge. It was raining too hard so I did not get to do that. I do love seeing these types of old bridges though. Was not disappointed.

Huge bridge near the cemetery and could use renovation but it's still worth seeing.. Not much to do just take a look or some pictures. But I loved the cemetery that's right there.

Sad to see Big Four Bridge is deteriorating. Seems the railroad is in charge of fixing it up and doesn't. Sad, for it is an amazing bridge, but falling apart.
