Description 

One of several bridges built for farmers during the 1940's for farmers after Pond Creek was dredged. This is the only one of those that is left. Bridges were possibly built by the county or state not sure which. But I would say state. Bridge was built straight on the ground with no real abutments it seems as you will see in the pictures.
