Description 

I was told that this was built by the long-passed father of the family sometime in the late 40's or early 50's. The abutments, which look very good, were also made by him.

The gentleman that I have talked to does not remember when trusses were removed, probably in late fifties. He believes that it was not moved to this location, but that his father fabricated it himself. He has not been able to locate a photo of it. Boo!
