Gospel Street and Pedestrian Bridges, Paoli, IN (2)

**Paoli Historic District** - National Register of Historic Places Ref # 94001355, date listed 19941125

 

Roughly bounded by W. Fifth, Railroad and NE. Third Sts. and Lick Cr.

 

Paoli, N (Orange County)

 

(I don't believe this bridge exists anymore.)

 

Constructed in 1880 by the Cleveland, Ohio, Bridge and Ironworks Company, it was the state highway route over Lick Creek until the 1950s. Alongside is a very rare, bowstring-arch truss bridge for pedestrians. (1)
