I would suggest a build date of 1872-1875 with a relocation date of 1905.
I LOVE (all sarcasm intended) how the county engineer referred to the replacement of an historic bridge with a concrete and steel eyesore as a "rehab project".
I just read the attached newspaper article - this was a very good read. It really illustrates what a bridge can mean to a community.
State structure number was 053-3404. It was located northeast of Charlotte or 2.7 miles southwest of Cullom-the loction on the map has it southeast of Charlotte. It was a Phoenix Truss, built by the Phoenix Iron Co. of Philadelphia, PA. It was torn down in June, 1997. According to the news article it had originally been built someplace else, removed from there, and rebuilt in this location where it stood for 100 years. Sorry for the poor quality of the articles.
