Description 

Found this photo mislabeled as the High Street Bridge, which was a Camelback Truss. After a discussion on the "Lost Muncie" FB group a gentleman said he was very familiar with this bridge (and house) and it was located on East Memorial Drive. It was replaced around the time when the State Road 3 bypass was built.
