This bridge is located in the Ozark National Forest on road 1601, 5 miles east of AR 309 on Magazine Mountain. A few yards upstream from the bridge on Shoal Creek there is a natural stone crossing. The old road going up the mountain from Paris crossed the creek here, and it converged here with the roads coming from Dardanelle and Havana. In the late 1800's and early 1900's this crossing was the site of the town of Millard. The town had a post office, hotel, grist mill, store and blacksmith shop however nothing remains today but the stone crossing.
