Brewer & Shipley: Welcome To Riddle Bridge

Brewer & Shipley: Welcome To Riddle Bridge

Brewer & Shipley, consisting of Mike Brewer and Tom Shipley, was a very popular folk music duo during the late 1960’s and early 1970’s. They are most remembered for the single “One Toke Over The Line” which was released in 1970 on their third album, “Tarkio”. Six years later, in 1976, the pair released their seventh album, titled “Welcome To Riddle Bridge” under the Capitol Records label.

The album title pays homage to Riddle Bridge in Pulaski County USA and the cover art shows Brewer & Shipley standing on the 12 panel Pennsylvania through truss bridge that was built in 1911 by Canton Bridge Company. The bridge featured on that cover was replaced circa 1987 and now serves as a footbridge in Nebraska as a part of the Arbor Day Foundation headquarters.

Today, Mike Brewer resides outside of Branson, Missouri and Tom Shipley lives and teaches in Rolla, Missouri in Phelps County, which neighbors Pulaski County.

Locals, visitors, and tourists still gather at the Riddle Bridge site (located at the end of Y Highway) to enjoy the scenic and dramatic bluffs and the natural beauty of the Gasconade River.

The Normandy: Historic Route 66

The Normandy: Historic Route 66

The Normandy, near Buckhorn, was a favorite eating place for locals, as well as Route 66 travelers. The restaurant, hotel, and gas station complex was razed circa 1978. A quarry is on the site now. The pillars that marked the entrance to The Normandy are still visible on the south side of the road close to the turnoff for the Pulaski County – Fort Leonard Wood Shrine Club.
