  1. The information you have listed on this page is incorrect about the Gregg Mill Bridge. It was built in 1881. In 1993 the bridge was taken apart by trained timber-wrights and a concrete superstructure was built as its new base. The original bridge was then placed on this new built frame. The collar ties (main structure that holds the two side walls together) was widened and new rafters and roof were then added. The frame of the bridge is from the original bridge 1881. Early American Bldrs replaced all the collar ties of the bridge in 2006 when a local propane truck destroyed the bridge with the boom fully extended. All new members were mortise and tenon just like the original bridge was done in 1881. The bridge is constructed with large oak and Ohio Chestnut in a multiple Kingpost design. It spans 124′ across the Wakatomika Creek on Frampton Rd (TWP RD 201) Fallsbury TWP, Fallsburg Ohio, NE Licking Cty Ohio. Bridge #35-45-06.
