It is older than 1937 that is for sure. There are numerous relocated trusses in Northern California and it has been difficult to figure out where these structures came from and when.

There is even one instance, the Walker Bridge, where an 1893 bridge built in Sacramento was moved to rural Siskiyou County in 1932, then returned to Sacramento in 1997.

Looks like a mid 1880's bridge to me.
