Back in the day (late nineteenth century) water was diverted off of Henson Creek into little canals running on both sides of the residential streets here in Lake City. This water was used for irrgation of gardens and household use. Mary Beam would fill a pot for soup not knowing that old man Vickers, upstream, had just washed the spittoons from his saloon. This little walking bridge crosses one of the few remaining canals.
