This bridge was obviously once located on a public road and relocated here at some point. The question is what road and what stream did it cross? We will probably never know.

Just a note about bridges on private property. This bridge is part of a large retirement trailer park on the outskirts of Van Buren. If you know anybody that lives in the park, as I do, then it is perfectly OK to be in the park and to photograph. You should always ask and get permission to cross private property. Most people are OK with photographers, as long as you ask. It is hunting and fishing that people really try hard to protect their rights. In addition there is some "magnetic" quality to bridges that attracts people who want to dump trash, and this creates negative feelings for all of us who only want to take photos and leave nothing behind but good will.
