Definitely looks like a historic pony truss. Not sure if its relocated or where it came from. Ohio does have a number of pony truss bridges on private property. Like those in Michigan, some appear to have been erected from day one for private use. Not sure if this is one of those or not.

Found this bridge right after posting the Miami Trail Bridge a little to the south. I cant find any details about this bridge, but from Google maps or Bing Maps it looks like a real pony truss. Please comment.
