This is no doubt, a mystery bridge in itself. It is or was located 2 miles east of the Cedarville Post Office next to the Mill Pond Road just before its confluence with the East Fork Cedar Creek. A popular swimming area. No records found at Crawford County Courthouse, which allows me to speculate it was county built, but never recorded properly. Old timers remember crossing on this bridge when it was a pass thru-truss. All that remains today are at least 5 piers and possibly a 6th in heavy brush. The only thing that remains of the bridge are a few old main beams or verticals over the old piers; indicating at a possible later date being used as a foot bridge?? Steel is stamped, "CARNIGIE". What does make this piece bridge so special is the implanted grist mill stone in one of the north piers. Beautiful!
Research has determined that Cornelius Warren Neal was a merchant & postmaster in Cedarville, Arkansas and also had a grist mill. Not confirmed, but this grist mill wheel possibly could be from the Neal Grist Mill. Finding a descendant would be great and answer a lot of questions. Comments, hints, & clues appreciated! IMPORTANT NOTE: Hard to get the exact location of old bridge. GPS given may not be exact.
