Bridge Documentation

Hidden away in the middle of a field is this extremely rare surviving example of a Smith Bridge Company pony truss with finials. While most companies reserved finials for use on through truss bridges, it is known that the Smith Bridge Company built pony trusses with finials, but surviving examples are almost unheard of. Historical photos of one example can be found on the Farm Lane Bridge page. The bridge has a broken plaque that bears the letters "UCHOUQ" which would seem to reference Duchouquet Township. As this bridge is today located in Wayne Township, it is assumed the bridge was moved here from an unknown location in Duchouquet Township. The bridge likely dates to the 1880s. It retains historic integrity including the distinctive verticals with battens and the center bottom chord features the company's unique rounded rectangle eyebars.

Length given is a rough estimate.
