South Benson Creek Bridge
Posted November 1, 2011, by Walter Laughlin (Laughlin [dot] Robert [at] gmail [dot] com)

Just FYI:

This bridge replaced a pony truss that replaced a covered bridge that was burned by night riders in 1895 or 1896. They also burned the two other covered bridges at Bridgeport.
