Do you have any information as to when the original covered bridge was built and when it came down? My grandparents lived down the road. They moved there in the 1920's and I was wondering if the covered bridge was there then. Thanks for any info you can give.

No photos for this bridge anywhere I could find. All the Historic Bridge Inventory has is the scan from the older historic bridge inventory, which I include here. It has only thumbnail photos.
