Excerpt from Past and Present of Fountain and Warren Counties, Indiana All life and achievement is evolution; present wisdom comes from past experience, and present commercial prosperity has come only from past excr tion and suffering. The deeds and motives of the men that have gone before have been instrumental in shaping the destinies of later communities and states. The development of a new country was at once a task and a privi lege. It required great courage, sacrifice and privation. Compare the pres ent conditions of the people of Fountain and Warren counties, Indiana, with what they were one hundred years ago. From a trackless wilderness and vi1gin land, it has come to be a cente1 of prosperity and civilization, with mil lions of we ealth, systems of railways, grand educational institutions, splendid industries and immense agricultural and mineral productions. Can any think 111g person be insensible to' the fascination of the study which discloses the aspirations and efforts of the early pioneers who so strongly laid the founda tion upon which has been reared the magnificent prosperity of later days? To perpetuate the story of these people and to trace and record the social, political and industrial progress of the community from its first inception is the function of-the local historian. A sincere purpose to preserve facts and personal memoirs that are deserving 'of perpetuation, and which unite the present to the past, is' the motive of the present publication. The work has been in the hands of'able writers, who have, after much patient study and research, pioduced here the most complete biographical memoirs of Fountain and \v an en counties ever offered to the public A specially valuable and interesting department is that devoted to the sketches of 1epresentative citizens of this county.

Once there were hundreds of 19th-century and very early 20th-century covered bridges in Indiana--so many in fact, that the state ranked third in the nation in the number of structures still standing. By the early 1930s and 1940s, a movement was afoot to preserve those magnificent structures that had not already disappeared due to desertion and deterioration. Some were saved, but many were not. What was saved and cherished, however, was an abundance of vintage black and white images taken by pioneer photographers who willingly trekked from bridge to bridge decades ago. Captured in this volume are nearly 200 of those photographs from the mid-20th century and before, representing more than 36 Indiana counties from Adams County to Wells County.
