Forsythe Bridge, Spanning Big Flat Rock Creek, CR 650S, Moscow, Rush County, IN
Significance: Local bridge contractor Emmett L. Kennedy built the Forsythe Bridge in 1888. The Kennedy family of Rushville built nearly sixty covered bridges, which are distinguished primarily by the scrollwork and cornice brackets at the arched portal, horizontal wood siding, and whitewashed exterior.
Nearly all, including the Forsythe, use the Burr arch-truss. The well-crafted Forsythe Bridge illustrates the Kennedy's accomplishments in bridge building.
