Description 

There was a "iron bridge" constructed here to replace a previous bridge around 1900. Newspapers show repairs and maintenance on this bridge ca 1905. Assume it was a steel truss type by Cox, as this was the contractor for the other bridges in the area. The south side of the bridge was in section 19 on the "Lovejoy hay meadow." This would be about a mile upstream from the Bryan Bridge. Safe to assume the bridge fell out of use after the Bryan was built.
