That is good news all around. Hopefully Generation Z has an appreciation for historic bridges.
It looks like some work has been done fairly recently to stabilize this structure. Interestingly, one of the most skilled stone masons in the area lives just a few yards from here and takes care to keep the area cleaned up. I'm informed that people come here for senior pictures, etc.
This is a great find and I am glad to see some photos on here. A similar bridge in Rush County, which was on the national register of historic places, was demolished a few years ago. It is good to see that this one is still standing so far. Hopefully it will be retained. I would I think that this bridge has a high chance of being found historic given its unusual design.
This one's a Beauty!
