Is this bridge older than 1913? The two center spans appear to be older, maybe ca. 1895? The swing span also appears to be a little newer, but not 1913. Reportedly, the stationary spans were replaced after the 1913 flood, but the swing span survived. The stationary spans very well could have been moved from another location.
Swing span is swung to prevent people from crossing the bridge. Fundraising effort is underway.
Interesting article on a group's fundraising efforts to restore this bridge:
