Written by J. Randall Houp

All cement railroad bridge with the date it was made stamped on southside of bridge, "1908". Most likely not the first bridge or trestle at this location due to the fact the railroad was running through this location several years before this date. Bridge in excellent condition considering its age.

I've passed by that bridge a number of times, yet I've never stopped for a closer look.
