Description 

This bridge was originally built in 1904 by the Nashville Bridge Company to span Wartrace Creek near the junction of Horse Mountain Road and Bell Buckle-Wartrace Road in the eastern part of Bedford County, a cost of $1200. Twelve years later the road was realigned and the bridge moved 200 yards downstream. In 1952 the county sought to upgrade the roads and this bridge was chosen to span North Fork Creek its final location before its demise. The cost for moving cost $2500.
