CE Association Preservation Award Winner!
This old (1860s) iron Bowstring Bridge was built by the Massillon Bridge Co. It was abandoned and forgotten on Oxford Road over Howard Ck. (39.2817,-84.74054). Thanks to the preservation efforts of Hamilton county, the bridge was reconstructed off-site and then moved in 2006 to the Crosby Township's Senior Center at 8910 Willey Road, Hamilton County where it is now part of a pedestrian walking trail.
