Dana and Kay,i just so happened to have visited this bridge yesterday being Memorial Day.While there i did not see no builders plaques on either side of the bridge or any date stone.While i did not find anything i did happen to take a good look at the pedestrian foot bridge in the park opposite the museum.If you turn the street view you can see it.It is a wooden bridge resting on steel beams on each side with cross beams of wood.Very good workmanship.I didn't see no identification of who built it or when it was built because basically i was looking at the bridge itself.
