bridges around table rock
Some random images and articles in no particular order.
Photo 675. The bridge over Taylor Creek during the 1915 flood. The house in the foreground was torn down and Donnie Kalina's house built there. The next house is still there but encased within extensive remodeling. The third house is still there but in worse shape. The remainder of the houses on the block are gone.
Photo 3028, bridge over the Nemaha being built: shared by Steve Russell. He sent it with an email that said, "Hello,I was going through some old pictures from my father’s estate and found this picture that you might be interested in. The description on the back reads, “Piers for bridge across Nemaha River east of Table Rock, Nebr., April, 1941.” My father, Ross Russell, was raised in Nemaha County (Nemaha and Peru). Hope you can find a place on your website for this." Boy, could we! Great picture! Steve Russell Chattanooga, TN
