Hi Elaine,

I hope you can help me. I am trying to locate who I can contact to acquire this bridge for our home property which is in a historic district.

My number is 3016417679 or email above. Thank you.

The original bridge has not been demolished. It's sitting less than a mile away in a parking lot next to the Copper Fox Distillery.
