Believed to have been built circa 1840, this bridge is now abandoned and on private property.
The deck is heavily covered with soil and vegetation, and despite being only 20 feet from the road, it is unable to be easily seen most of the year save for looking directly downstream from the current bridge in use.
No apparent records on this bridge exist.
Northern wing wall suffered serious damage from constant flash floods between 2016 and 2017, but bridge itself continues to stand.
