Cool Old Bridge

We found a cool old bridge south of Douglass Kansas today. These old iron bridges are becoming endangered around the state; I know of 3 in our county alone that have perished in the last 20-30 years.

This one is unique in that it has a wooden driving surface. No concrete or anything like that, just wood on top of iron bars! It also has a height and weight limits, but we were fine in both regards.

The last photo is of a building we passed in Newton on the way home. I know nothing about it beyond what is shown.
