Harden family restored Old Footbridge over Pelham Branch
A Bridge with Memories: Much of structure is original, but wooden parts replaced. It's almost completely restored now, with just a few loose ends left to do
By Margaret Harden
I was delighted to see you had put the bridge to my old home place on Columbia Magazine.
Back last fall there was a picture put on there and since then I wanted to restore it. My husband David and our grandson (Blaine Harden) completely restored it a few days ago.
There are still some loose ends to tidy up, but it is mostly finished.
This is my old homeplace and growing up there on the farm before my husband and I purchased it in 1991 we never had a way to cross except the foot bridge.
I can remember when the bridge was totally washed out by a flood and my dad Richard Smith replaced it all with the steel beams.
We used the same steel beams; however replaced all the wood.
This little bridge has fond childhood memories to me and that is why I wanted my husband to restore it.
Again, thanks for sharing the memories - Margaret Harden
