Spanning a small tributary of the Little Nemaha River, this forty-foot bowstring carries a vacated section of county road southwest of Lorton. The wrought iron superstructure has evidently been moved to this crossing, its original location unknown. The structure consists of two-panel, bowstring arch-truss fabricated from a patented design by the King Iron Bridge Company of Cleveland, Ohio. It is perhaps one of five iron spans purchased by the county from King in June and July 1876.

The National Register of Historic Places (NRHP) is the country’s official list of historically significant properties. To be eligible for the NRHP a property must generally retain their historic appearance, be at least 50 years old, and have the potential to be documented as historically or architecturally significant at either the local, state, or national level. The National Register of Historic Places is a National Park Service program administered by the Nebraska State Historical Society for the state of Nebraska.
