Signs, Signs, A Message From The Pope & A Good Fence In Buchanan

Rte 11 . Troutville (across the street from this week's water tower)

Buchanan Swinging Bridge

Constructed in 1851, burnt down in the Civil War, rebuilt, washed away in a flood, rebuilt again...this bridge has been through it all! I've shown you the bridge before HERE

More snaps of the bridge:
Birds like it...

Looking back into town from the bridge...

And here's the concret bridge that was built in 1937. This sits right next to the Swinging Bridge. That's the James River. For more info on the bridge(s) CLICK HERE

Linking with Signs, Signs & Good Fences

Have a great day!

  8. That bridge has been through hell and back! Hey, I thought the message from the pope meant that he'd hacked your blog for the day. No??? ;)
