Standing above the south abutment from the new bridge. You can see a bit of the side at this angle
Remains of the south abutment, they are easier to see in winter than summer.

View from the north. New bridge on left, church road on right, old bridge road can be seen in the center, there is a red sign on the road block
Visited this site today and got a bunch of pictures. I miss the old bridge, as the current one has very little character like the old one did. Here is the current bridge.
Loved this one as well Jen!
It would still be there if that tree hadn't fallen on it. I remember that tree as well and wish it had been taken down before this happened.
The old bridge was moved to a contractors lot and I think there was hope of someday reconstructing it. I don't know if it is still there or was scrapped.
I loved this bridge and crossed it many times when I was younger. The ugly thing they built just east of where this one stood just makes me sad.For those of you looking for it's location, it was literally a stone's throw to the west from the one that is there now. It was angled differently, but you can still see evidence of where it was if you look. I will try to get a photo of the place it stood next time I go that way.
Hey guys- here's a little info on this bridge. It was bypassed and standing next to the new bridge, when apparently a tree fell on it. I dont know the extent of the damage, but I was told it is in storage for possible reuse. It is a Wrought Iron Bridge Co. tubular bowstring thru truss (circa1874). I hope to see it again someday.
I think I've found where this bridge was located. Nothing left but one abutment. Hopefully has been dismantled for future use rather than destroyed.
I don't think this bridge does exist. That or itís well hidden, because I can't find it either. Miami County has an iron bridge festival and their web site lists the remaining iron bridges in the county, with the exception of paw paw creek. There seems to be very little information regarding this bridge or itís status.
Does this bridge even still exist? I drove to what I thought was the location of this bridge and found a concrete structure there. I hope this bridge was disassembled and moved instead of torn down!
