This one looks standard... The Asylum Bridge is the one dubbed as the "Reverse Parker".

I believe it is a Reverse Parker Through Truss.

9th Street Bridge

This bridge is located on private property south of the Osawatomie city levee and west of the Pottawatomie Creek Marsh Arch Bridge.

I am assuming that it survived the Osawatomie Flood of 2007.
