I wrote to a family who I believe is the owner. I have not heard back yet.

I have long known that there was an abandoned bridge over Lyon Creek in this general vicinity. The latest Google Earth aerial imagery shows that there is a truss bridge of some sort here. It is likely a Pratt pony truss, but a field check may be necessary to confirm this.
