The North Manchester Covered Bridge was built in 1872 by engineer Robert W. Smith for an estimated cost of $3,515. The entire structure was built of wood and held together by pins, iron bolts, and square-cut nails. It was a single span over the river with no supports. The bridge underwent extensive repairs completed in time for the State sesquicentennial in 1966, including the addition of steel pylons and new flooring. The bridge was closed to traffic in the mid-1980s and re-opened in the 1990s.The covered bridge in North Manchester was added to the Register of Historic Places in 1982. - in:

Dallas has the ninth largest population in the nation. The Dallas area is the largest metropolitan area in the nation not on a navigable body of water. 
Dallas is Texas' most mythical city, with a past and present rich in the stuff that American legends are made of. The 'Big D' is famous for its contributions to popular culture – notably the Cowboys and their cheerleaders, and Dallas, the TV series that for a time was a worldwide symbol of the USA. - in:
