This looks like the Mill Bridge in between Quitman and Damascus on what is now Mill Bridge Road. Especially that last picture - I know that is the Mill Bridge.

This looks similar to the bridge that was near Guy and Steel House Hollow. It was called "Mill Bridge" and my Dad swam there as a kid. I have pictures, they aren't real clear, but you can see the structures are very close...

Seems I remember a bridge like this over the East Cadron Creek on either Wilson Bottoms Road or Clinton Mountain Road (the name changes near the bridge). That is about 3-4 miles north of Holland.

IN MY OPINION this bridge is most likely 1 of 2 lost bridges on Cadron Creek at Faulkner / Conway county line. these bridges were north and south of the infamous Springfeild/Des Arc which is on this site. in conclusion this bridge is either the lost "Mallet Town" bridge further north on Cadron creek between highway 285 near Republican and highway 124 near Springfeild. or the lost Cadron bridge further south between highway 285 at Wooster and highway 92 near Plummerville.

please feel free to contact me to discuss these or any other bridges as i have recently photographed 3 other thru truss bridges not on this site
