My bad. I trusted the HABS people to have the correct information. I should have made sure the bridge types matched up.

The photos posted on this page are obviously of a different bridge...anyone know where the bridge in the photos might be/have been located?

This bridge was actually in Canal Fulton, Ohio, over the Tuscarawas River just southwest of the Ohio & Erie Canal on Cherry Street.

If you use Google Street view you can still see the house on the northwest quadrant.

I will look for some photos I might have.
