Duncan's Bridge, or " Leesburg " as it is familiarly called, is situated in the western portion of Monroe county, in Woodlawn township, 20 miles from Paris, 10 miles from Madison. The village is surrounded by a prosperous farming community, and the village itself can boast of superior business qualifications and enterprise as will be shown by the growth and prosperity of the place. Eight years ago there was only one business house and one saw-mill; to-day there are three dry goods and grocery stores, one drug store, two saw and grist mills, one furniture store, two blacksmith shops, one wagon shop, one carding machine run by steam. All are in prosperous condition, and at no distant day Duncan's Bridge, though a thriving village now, will reach an epoch when it will be known as one of the important towns of Monroe county
