Inundated towns are always a sad, but interesting story.

Look up "Granton bridge NY" in google image search to see pics of a two span Parker that was abandoned intact as the waters of Cannonsville Reservoir rose over it.

Granton would've been around 42.096986, -75.256459 and the bridge was on the road that disappears into the water to the north, I assume.

Built 1907, per this web page:

Builders plaque and portal cresting is a solid match for Owego Bridge Co.
