Built in 1817 by Moses Shepherd, a prominent Ohio Countian, as part of the National Road. Constructed of uncoursed limestone, but covered by concrete in 1958, it is the oldest extant three span elliptical arch bridge in the state. Also known as "Monument Place Bridge" due to the nearby memorial built to Henry Clay for Shepherd in honor of his support for National Road construction.
