Description 

Bridge is about 100' long, it is falling into the creek, probably won't withstand many more floods. I'm thinking this is a Luten, but the plaque is missing. Special thanks to David Hall for remembering this one, I have lived within 4 miles of this all my life (47 yrs) and never knew there was a bridge there!!!
