Description 

The Hickory Valley Railroad was a short logging line in Forest County Pennsylvania. It was in existence from 1887 to 1938 and was chiefly used for logging purposes. It was built by Wheeler & Dusenbury Company, of Endeavor, PA. They were owners of several large lumber sawmills in the area. The photos of the bridge were taken about 1910 and are courtesy of Forest County Historical Society. Some of the railroad extended into Warren County Pennsylvania, also. The location of the bridge is an approximate one, by using old railroad maps and USGS maps.
