Located on a rail-trail in a scenic mountainous setting, this is one of several stunning historic truss bridges on the rail-trail. All appear to have been built ca. 1901-1902 by the American Bridge Company, making them early examples of what was then a newly-founded company. Those bridges with surviving plaques state that they were built by the Elmira, New York plant of American Bridge. The railroad line was previously a Penn Central and New York Central line. Lengths given are extremely rough estimates.
This bridge sits next to a highway bridge where a historic lenticular truss bridge called the Waterville Bridge was located. That bridge was moved and preserved in Lebanon County.
