I might also add that I've been visiting the bridge since the late 80's. As far as I remember, it's always been empty.

Not sure if it was a house, or a farmer's fruit and veggie stand. I took pictures the last time I was out that way in the winter months, but it was well grown over last week.

Does anyone know about that little house next to this bridge? Its to the right of it when your pulling into the bridge. I want to know about it and see if or if not it is for sale.
