The remains of the broken builder plaque was hard to read, but the date was 189 something, most likely a 9. There are a number of pony truss bridges remaining in Iroquois county built by the Massillon Bridge Company during the 1890s.
This bridge is a four panel pin connected half-hip Pratt pony truss. It features channel railings and a wooden deck. Looped eye bars are present on the bridge. There is v-lacing present on the vertical members. Structurally the bridge appeared to be a good condition, despite its being abandoned. The stone abutments looked like they were beginning to fall apart however. This would be a good bridge to consider relocating somewhere before its abutments bring about the demise of an otherwise restorable truss bridge.
This historic bridge has been demolished. This map is shown for reference purposes only.
