Description 

Wooden covered pony truss. Replaced a similar bridge built in 1832. I have placed this bridge on Old Farms Road. Cider Brook, close by, is too small to warrant a bridge of this size, either on Cider Brook Road or Route 10 Waterville Road. Early maps identify this part of Avon as the Cider Brook area.
