Historic Bridge Lost in Knox County, Ohio

Photo: 2004
This bridge over the Kokosing River was removed 6/11/07 by the county following fload damage to the pier that threatened a collapse of the bridge (the other span of the bridge was removed years ago). Mt. Vernon and county officials could not agree on contributing the $24,000 needed to save the span. This iron bridge was built in 1872 by the Columbia Bridge Works and was on the National Register of Historic Places.
