ELKHART — Dozens of residents, veterans and city officials gathered Thursday, May 22 at the Havilah Beardsley House, at North Main Street and Beardsley Avenue, for a rededication ceremony for the Memorial Bridge, which spans the St. Joseph River on Main Street.

Several speakers spoke of the history and importance of the river and the intersection where Havilah Beardsley built Elkhart.

The Disabled American Veterans Chapter 19 Honor Guard fired a 21-gun salute and played taps before marching over the bridge and standing at attention as an antique car parade concluded the ceremony by driving south over the bridge toward downtown.
