History: 

Written by J Randall Houp

Railroad bridge located about 1 1/2 north of Pike City Junction next to the beautiful Antoine River. Not the original bridge built at this location in 1905. Bridge #448.5. Railroad originally known as the Gurdon & Fort Smith RR, later taken over by the Missouri Pacific and later, other railroads. Last known as the Caddo Valley Railroad and hasn't been in operation for 3 years. Area; very rough, very scenic. Do not go during hunting season. Timber land leased out to private hunting clubs. Continuing north on this old historic railroad will take you to the ghost-towns of Graysonia, Arkansas and Shawmut, Arkansas.
