Old Stone Fort Bridge - Manchester, TN

Old Stone Fort Bridge - Manchester, TN

This Pratt through truss bridge crosses the Duck River at Old Stone Fort State Archaeological Park in Manchester, TN and is used to connect the campground to the main road. The one land bridge with a wooden driving surface was built in 1906 and crossed the Elk River at Dabbs Ford (Which as far as I can tell was about 20 miles away to the southeast). The bridge was relocated here to cross the Duck River in 1971 and was then rehabilitated in 2009. My favorite feature is the etched pattern at the top, as you don't see that too often around here.
