The comments at the bottom have confused this bridge with another one farther to the west.

This is a 200 foot through truss bridge originally built in 1925 over the Pearl River on the Natchez, Columbia & Mobile Railroad. That line shut down in 1933 and the Mississippi Central disassembled the bridge and moved it to its current location

Bridge is in Franklin County, not Lincoln, and is over Homochitto River, not McCall Creek. Located just East of Eddiceton, MS. Can be seen from Hwy 84.
