R.I.P. Eagle Creek Covered Bridge
It's not the most devastating thing to have happened during the flood. I believe several people lost their lives. The Ledger reported that the flood cost Maysville around $100,000 to keep the water out and in areas not protected by a floodwall, the costs were much higher.
Still, without diminishing all of that, the bridge over Eagle Creek is what I remember. I spent a lot of time around it during my teen years, since my parents lived just up the road. Yes, I admit, some of those sweetheart J + ? carvings were mine. Though I'm about a decade older, haven't carved up historic landmarks in quite some time, and have a new sweetheart, things like that aren't supposed to just wash away.
