Description 

Elegant bridge with typical CBW design characteristics. Of note, apparently White was either a common or standard color for CBW.

Facts 

Overview
Lost Pratt through truss bridge over Great Miami River on State Street (235 is approximately the same crossing)
Location
Quincy, Logan County, Ohio
Status
No longer exists
History
The bridge was built between 1876 & 1882; in one image a final digit of 7 seems to show - only basis of build date. I'm guessing that it was lost in the floods of 1913 as all references I found pre-date this
Builder
- Columbia Bridge Works of Dayton, Ohio
Design
Two span, seven panels each Pratt through truss built primarily of wrought iron with minor use of structural cast iron.

Fulton Farms Bridge is indeed located on a former public road. It may be possible that the bridge was moved there, but its not a situation of a bridge being moved to private property, its a former public road that is now private.

Your eyes are def better than mine Art! That being said, I blew up the pic as big as I could on my phone... and I would have actually agreed with you! 😜

I was led to believe that Fulton Farm Bridge was on an old county road but idk. It does appear to be on stone abuts. I'm sure there was a large number of CBW spans in that region we haven't accounted for yet. 😁

I'm a bit behind on my CBW of the week but circumstances are such that I haven't the time.

Any additional info would be great!

If anyone else can confirm my build date and my theory on its loss, I'd appreciate it. Also, could this be the source for the Fulton Farms span https://bridgehunter.com/oh/miami/fulton-farm/ stylistically the same, same truss configuration, same number of panels.

Regards,

PS. Tony, I knew it was CBW when I saw the first image but I also knew you wouldn't let me get away with it :^)
