BH Photo #247978
This 60'-9"-long, twelve-panel riveted Warren pony truss was built around 1911 by the Midland Bridge Company of Kansas City, Missouri. It originally spanned Iron Ore Creek at Grayson County Route 597, but has been relocated to Loy Lake Park near Denison, Texas. It survives in its present location as one of only a few extant bridges erected by the Midland Bridge Company in Texas, and in its original location it served as an important local transportation link in the development of Grayson County's agricultural economy.
