The first wooden bridge was built across the Coldwater River in 1843 with a steel bridge erected about 1895. The current bridge was constructed in the late 1950s. The Coldwater River starts from Coldwater Lake and meanders northwest 29.5 miles before emptying into the St. Joe River just ahead. Slaves
followed the Coldwater River to Union City as part of The Underground Railroad. In the 1850s, John D. Zimmerman , a local blacksmith, was the self-appointed station-master on what became the 2nd station on The Underground Railroad.
