Potter's Ford Bridge

Crossing the West Fork of White River and constructed with a Howe truss, this 259-foot, double-span structure was built by Josiah Durfee in 1871. The Potter's Ford bridge was bypassed in 1971 and is now closed to traffic, but was restored in 1999 to include a beautiful park at the north portal.

Hamilton County was established in 1823 and named in honor of Alexander Hamilton, one of the original signers of the Declaration of Independence. It is located in Central Indiana where Noblesville is the County Seat.

Hamilton County originally had six (6) covered bridges. Today it has two (2) remaining.

Points of interest in the County include: Connor Prairie Pioneer Settlement, Geist Reservoir and the Museum of Transport & Communication.
