If you have the chance-you need to visit the Big Four Bridge-AND The Spot! Both are a HUGE part of the town of Sidney. Bring a camera!

Visited the bridge and it was beautiful in design. and it cuts a nice figure through the south side of town. After that, I didn't spend too much time with it but it was nice to see it!

This bridge is a one of a kind very rich in history and legend. The view from surrounding high grounds shows a picture worth painting. Many stories have been published over the years about the construction and possible tragedy. well worth a look!

Interesting history of this old train trestle bridge. Legend of two men and a donkey being swallowed up in the concrete during construction persists.

The Big Four bridge is one of the most unique attractions I have ever seen. It is a railroad bridge rich in history. Fun to see, especially if you get to watch a train cross it.

Stopped by to try to take pictures of the bridge. It was raining too hard so I did not get to do that. I do love seeing these types of old bridges though. Was not disappointed.

Interesting to see. There have been known to be some tragic cicumstances with this bridge. People have jumped to their death off the bridge. Kids used to hang out on the bridge and drop things onto passing cars below. While there is some bad history...More

Huge bridge near the cemetery and could use renovation but it's still worth seeing.. Not much to do just take a look or some pictures. But I loved the cemetery that's right there.
