This Bridge To Nowhere In The Middle Of The Iowa Woods Will Capture Your Imagination

The story of Kate Shelley is famous in Iowa. In 1881, a girl only fifteen years old saw that the bridge near her home was out, and attempted to prevent a passenger train disaster. She not only managed to alert the train but also saved three men who had fallen from the bridge earlier. The bridge near her home became her namesake – but what is left of it today?
