You might be on to something here. This seems like a mystery third bowstring. So this bridge is too small for the other pony bowstring and the one over the Nemaha River is a Through Truss bowstring. So this makes a third one that is a mystery.

James, If you are certain; I will do so and remove this entry. When I searched, to my eye, your bridge seemed bigger and the verticals seemed different.

Let me know if you are certain.

Regards,

Art S.

You would do well to just add the pic of the bridge to the posted bridge page

There were two bowstring bridges near Falls City, NE. The one you got pictured is this one: http://bridgehunter.com/ne/richardson/bh49232/

It still exists and is posted. The other one was over the Nemaha River south of town but was a through truss bowstring type. I have added it.
