This is a unique little span.

I have seen some pics of full sized tied arches that existed in Ohio, but not of any ponies.

A local source states that this structure was relocated from another location within Douglas County. The span may have been part of the old Brockway Bridge over the South Umpqua River near Dillard which was replaced in 1965.

I am still working on confirming this, but it's still an interesting little bridge.
