Description 

From Ohio Historic Bridge Inventory: The 1896 pin-connected Pratt pony truss carried TR 79 over Brandywine Creek. It was relocated in 1991 to the property of Michael & Pamela Thomas, about 1.5 miles from the prior location, for re-use as a pedestrian bridge. The new location is just east of CR 21 in Bloomfield Twp. The bridge was an eligible bridge in the prior inventory.
