Transplanted Cattle Bridge

Think it's gone now.

[Sam, 05/06/2019]

The field formerly occupied by the bridge is now a BBQ restaurant. The town actually moved the bridge, again, this time into a vacant lot in town but off of the main road -- so if you don't know where to look you'll never see it. We've adjusted our map point and directions accordingly.

Moses Livestock Bridge

Cattle bridge that was across railroad tracks, later moved.

[Erin Jatzlau, 10/13/2016]

According to its impressive plaque, this entire bridge was moved to its current grassy retirement spot in 1999 as a memorial to a local rancher, who built it so that his livestock could cross some train tracks.
