I Saw The Marker

The Iron bridge is closed to all traffic and the marker cannot be reached from Cannelton Road. I do not recommend crossing the bridge by foot as much of the deck support structure is rusted away.
From Negley OH take OH 154 and PA 251 East 3.7 miles turn North (left) on Watts Mill Road,
From Chippewa PA take PA 251 West 6.6 miles, turn North (right) on Watts Mill Road.
Once on Watts Mill Road proceed 2,4 miles. The road closure is clearly marked. You will find the historical marker to your left beside the "North Country Trail" sign as the bridge comes into view. There is a small parking spot on the right hand side of the road. Facing the marker and just beyond it there are some stonework remnants of what I believe was part of a mill race and just uphill on the opposite side of the trail (same side of road) there are additional stones that appear to be a foundation. From the parking spot walking towards the bridge you will find stonework to the right near the bank of the North Fork of Little Beaver Creek.
