This bridge is an intact example of a stone arch bridge. The Historic Bridge Inventory lists a ca. 1880 construction date, but the National Register nomination claims the bridge was built in 1929. Normally more weight should be given to the nomination, and stone arch bridges were sometimes built in these later periods, but they are very rare.
