Dry Run Bridge
A 65' long, 16' wide bridge built by D.H. & C.C. Morrison over Dry Run near Snook Brothers store in the Deerfield section of South Lebanon. Built in 1879, opened in January 1880.
1879 would suggest Bridge was a Pratt pony although a bowstring pony would be possible. There are two crossings of Dry Run in Deerfield: Main and Pike. I marked it as Pike as it was closer to the Snook properties but I do not know where the Snook Brothers store was. An 1891 map suggests there was a dam (mill?) on Snook property along what is now Dry Run Road so that is also a possible location.
