I have been trying to find some conclusive facts about this bridge’s history. I noticed that someone stated the bridge might have been built by The Wrought Iron Bridge Co. I have seen several bridges built by this company so I took some close up pictures of construction details for comparison.
The bridge appears to me to be more similar to ones built by The Canton Bridge Co. Several of their bridges have design details that are identical. Three bridges listed on this site can be used for reference: The Country Club Road Bridge, 1898, Alabama; The Green Bridge, 1913, Ozark, MO; and The Wilson Bridge, 1904, Kansas.
The Wrought Iron Bridge Co and The Canton Bridge Co are related. John Reed worked as an apprentice at The Wrought Iron Bridge Co and then started The Canton Bridge Co in 1892.
If anyone has any information on the early history of this bridge, I hope they will share it.
