North Manchester Bridge

Crossing Eel River and constructed with a Smith type #4 truss, this 150 foot long structure was built by the Smith Bridge Company in 1872 and is still open to traffic. Due to the extreme width of this bridge, an internal walkway for pedestrians has been inserted.

Established in 1820 and named for the Wabash River, this county is located in Northeastern Indiana where Wabash is the County Seat.
