Larry Barnett was instrumental in getting the Cumberland Covered Bridge restored.

The 'Bridge Keeper' first aired on WIWU-TV in September 2010.  It focused on Matthews, Indiana and Larry Barnett, who fought to restore the bridge that is the landmark for the town and the centerpiece for an annual festival.

"The story is great because of what Larry did over several decades.  That bridge wouldn't be there without him.  We were just lucky enough to capture his passion on TV and pass it along creatively to our audience" said Dr. Randall R. King, producer of the video.
