  14. SETTING/CONTEXT:
  15. The bridge carries a 1 lane street and sidewalk over a stream on the east edge of Venango
  16. borough.  It is not contiguous to the developed area, which consists primarily of
  17. undistinguished, early 20th century vernacular houses, most with modern siding and altered
  18. windows.  Southeast of the bridge is a wooded, sparsely developed area.  The setting does
  19.  not have historic district potential.

  21. SURVEY NR RECOMMENDATION:
  22. SUMMARY:
  23. The 1893, pin connected, two span, 261'-long, Pratt thru truss bridge is supported on an
  24. ashlar pier and abutments.  It was fabricated by the Wrought Iron Bridge Company, and the
  25. hip floor beam hangers have their distinctive four-pronged detail.  The cantilevered sidewalk
  26. is finished with a handsome lattice railing. Crawford County is rich in pin connected, metal
  27. truss bridges with 35  ranging in date from 1870 through the early 20th century remaining.  
  28. This bridge stands out as a long, complete, multiple span example of its type and design.  
  29. Adding to its significance is its documentation to a prominent fabricator.  The bridge is
  30. historically and technologically significant.
