It appears the trusses of this bridge was salvaged when a new bridge was erected on Larimore Road back in 2012 and have been re-erected on the Knox County Historical Society grounds.

You can see the trusses on satellite view: https://www.google.com/maps/@40.379309,-82.5084464,174m/data...

They appear to have been erected since then according to the Facebook information.

This bridge had built-up floorbeams. The historic bridge inventory suggests ca. 1895. The builder and year built are not documented by available county records, so the 1910 data on this website was not accurate.
