NS - Rocky Fork Mohican River Bridge
Posted September 12, 2016, by Nathan Holth (webmaster [at] historicbridges [dot] org)

The three truss bridges along this railroad line likely were built soon after the 1913 flood, since it appears all the bridges over this river on this line (Pennsylvania Railroad) were washed out.
