Recycled Murray Street bridge in Goshen

Shown is another example of a beautiful metal truss bridge still in use. Originally built in 1909, the bridge was first used on what became State Road 25. Eventually in the late 1920s the road was renamed U.S. 20. Later the bridge was moved to the end of Murray Street in Goshen across the Millrace Canal. It replaced a wooden bridge at that location. The bridge is no longer used by cars, but people still use it on foot or bicycle to access the Millrace Trail.

About historynut11

My name is Tim Ashley and I am a newspaper editor/reporter/photographer in Milford, Indiana, and live in nearby Goshen, Indiana. A deeply held and sincere passion of mine is history and learning from the past. I enjoy a wide variety of history topics, but particularly local history, noted American highways (Lincoln Highway and Route 66), railroad history and the Civil War. I believe we can learn much from the past and that past shapes who we are today. I also enjoy visiting museums and historical sites, as well as taking photos of remnants from the past still standing.
