BH Photo #491723
Originally built as a 3-span Bowstring through truss about 1875 by the Massillon Bridge Company. One span collapsed in early 1913 (presumably during the great flood) and was replaced with a Pratt through truss the following year. The remaining Bowstring structure collapsed under a heavy load on New Years Day in 1941. A replacement Parker truss bridge was acquired from another location and moved in the following year.
