Description 

The bridge was in use as a shed in Elk Township, Ohio when Mr. Tom Malone, county historian, began tracing its history. He discovered that it had been built originally to span Middle Run in Elk Township, Ohio and that it had been moved circa 1900 to the nearby Huffman Farm, where it stood for about 12 years until SR 154 widening was planned and it was determined that the bridge was in the way. It was then moved to Pine Hollow Road where it was rebuilt for use as a storage shed when it was widened and a new roof installed. A campaign was began to get the bridge moved to Beaver Creek Park and in the early 1970s the move was made. The structure rests on cut stone abutments. It is covered with dark brown stained vertical boards on the sides and portals. The deck consist of lengthwise planking and it has a shingle roof.
