Bridge over Whitewater River at Harrison Ohio
The card above shows the remains of the Suspension Bridge that spanned the Whitewater River at Harrison. It was destroyed in the 1913 flood. It is a view looking across the river toward the Indiana side from State St. A West Side Drug Store Sign can be seen on the hill. The West Side was in Harrison until the 1960's.

The large 4 story building seen in the above cards was built in 1819 as a saw mill, and was used for over 100 years. The saw mill was operated by Jediah Hill and later by his son-in-law Henry Rogers. In 1887 it was sold to Charles Hartman and when timber became scarce, Hartman began to mill flour. The farmers in the area would bring in grain and take home flour. Hartman and his family also originally lived in this structure. In 1898 Hartman built a home next to the mill and modernized the flour mill. Because the mill sat down in a valley he named the flour Pride of the Valley Flour. In 1911, C. C. Groff bought and ran the mill. I have been told that the mill was burned to the ground by an arsonist in Oct. 1981 (never solved). In later years the property was sold and became part of Winton Woods, a Hamilton County Park.
