Description 

The one-lane bridge was constructed in 1884 by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company of Canton, Ohio along Beaver Creek.

The Porterfield-Binger construction Company was the lone bidder of a $9,991 rehabilitation project for Grimms Bridge on June 20, 1955. Grimms Bridge was renovated again in 1997 when new stringers and deck were installed. The bridge was also sandblasted and painted.
