Heritage House Museum of Montgomery County used this bridge as the theme for its 2014 commemorative Christmas ornament. There were a couple of 'through truss' bridges in the county many years ago. They were a favored site for photo ops.

There was an issue of the Looking Glass magazine in the late '70s or early '80s with a picture of this bridge.
