Significance: The White River Bridge on Delaware County Road 750W was fabricated and constructed by the Indiana Bridge Co. of Muncie, Indiana in 1897. Its 199'-10" span is the longest in Delaware County. The steel truss bridge has been in constant use since it was constructed but its oak deck has been replaced as the need arose. The bridge clearly expresses its sophisticated design by varying dimensions in accordance with changing loads and resulting forces.
