Our videos from our most recent journey around Greene County were sort of off the cuff and tossed onto one blog post like toppings on a Caputos pizza. We got a lot of positive feedback on the Pitt Gas swinging bridge video and figured it needed a post of its own. Some folks have given good insight on the Facebook site as to their memories of the bridge and tales of a recent restoration effort.
I don't know much about this bridge. It was the access to Clarksville from the Pitt Gas patch in the mining days and a popular hang out for kids since then.Its survived a few floods and the ravages of time...but shes in rough shape. So,fans of the swinging bridge..heres your chance to shine...We want your bridge facts/stories/memories/and most of all pictures! Lets not let a piece of our history end up scrapped like so many others!
I'm awaiting info on the effort to save the bridge and will repost here and on our Facebook site. Heres a few stills from last weeks trek to the bridge.You can comment here or email us at firstname.lastname@example.org
