Carroll County Court records show that this bridge was built and completed in 1916 by the Reeves Construction Company. Also the Berryville newspaper dated November 1916 also confirms the date of completion. This bridge along with the Osage Creek Bridge to the east was at that time the major thoroughfare that ran from Eureka Springs to Berryville. Complete history to be written along with additional photographs.

Searching for a photograph of this old bridge. My great-grandfather, Isaac Granville Houp, used to live in Kings River Township, in Carroll County, Arkansas. Would like to hear from anyone with old stories about this bridge or with historical data. When was this bridge torn down and where did it go? Did it go to bridge heaven, thrown into the Kings River, or sold for scrap???
