Thanks for the info Dane!

I can see it on satellite and it appears to be a 3-panel Bedstead truss. Warrick County once had many examples of Warren Bedsteads but most have been lost. It would be really neat if this were a surviving one!

If you get back that way you should take a few pics to post here! Thanks again!
