Unknown origin & history; Originally traffic drove from upper Frankford town and down thru Arch (in the creek), passing under Arch and on to New London (north) or Louisiana (south). Probably in the 1910's this slab bridge was added to aid in crossing over to the North. At present it is in danger of collapsing some day; Still, it's an interesting sidenote in the history of transportation.
